DOJ Accused Of "Smothering" Black Panther Probe

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights is accusing the Justice Department of "delaying and smothering" the agency's investigation into the handling of a voter intimidation case against members of the New Black Panther Party.

The Civil Rights Commission issued the following letter, stating that the Justice Department is avoiding responding to allegations against the Civil Rights Division and instead focusing "on delaying and smothering the Commission's investigation."

In a letter sent to the DOJ, General Counsel David P. Blackwood notes that the Commission's investigation, called the 2010 Enforcement Report "has extended beyond Fiscal Year 2010, an action taken due to the Department's lack of cooperation. The investigation has no set date of expiration," he added.
