But Perez and Colangelo don’t worry about the butcher’s bill. They use the power of their DOJ office in an ideological crusade. Unless their own pocketbooks or reputations suffer, they will continue to behave the same way.
So now the federal government is forced to reimburse a state for Perez’s overzealous use of the Voting Rights Act. None of Holder’s usual defenders in the media seem to care. Wasting taxpayer money doesn’t matter to them if it goes to a cause they believe in. Because Perez’s politicized plan helped Obama win reelection, you won’t read a single article outside of the conservative media about DOJ’s expensive South Carolina Voter ID folly. Come to think of it, even conservative media isn’t widely reporting that the Voting Section career lawyers at Justice recommended that this South Carolina mess never happen.That’s too bad, because it makes it more likely that Perez and Colangelo will continue to misbehave and abuse their power on your dime.
