The Justice Department’s Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez will speak tonight at 6 p.m. at the University of Baltimore School of Law.
Perez is behind the attack on voter ID laws in Texas and South Carolina, as well as a whole range of radical hires and policies at Holder’s Civil Rights Division. They include suing local schools to force children to be allowed to dress as transvestites as well as forcing other schools to give Muslim teachers up to three weeks off to make a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia. (All covered at the previous links and all over the web).
The press release from the University of Baltimore states:
Assistant Attorney General Thomas E. Perez of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division will speak at the University of Baltimore School of Law on Wednesday, Jan. 23, in a discussion entitled “Protecting Democracy’s Fundamental Civil Right: The Right to Vote.” The event, beginning at 6 p.m., is free and open to the public. It will take place in the law school’s Venable Baetjer Howard Moot Court Room, located in the lobby of the building at 1415 Maryland Ave.
Perez’s division, often called the “conscience of the federal government,” is charged with enforcing civil rights laws that ensure equal access to opportunity and full participation in our democracy.
The “conscience of the federal government” has become a laugh line. The “conscience” Division has been accused of committing perjury and theft, and harassing reporters covering DOJ actions. It also has been sanctioned over $4,100,000 for bringing merit-less cases, including in Georgia redistricting as well as the cost shift in the South Carolina voter ID lawsuit. Even Perez has been accused of committing perjury.
If the Justice Department Civil Rights Division is the “conscience” of the federal government, we’re in big trouble.
