The PJ Tatler

Embattled Labor Secretary nominee Tom Perez visited the downtrodden DOJ Voting Section this afternoon to commiserate with all of the bureaucrats who just saw their job rendered superfluous by the Supreme Court  today.  Approximately 25 bureaucrats and lawyers administer the law the Supreme Court just held to be unconstitutional.

“I’ve come to answer the question, ‘is anyone going to lose their job because of this?,’” Perez told the assembled Voting Section in an afternoon meeting.  “I have a one word answer and a two word answer:  NO! and HELL NO!”

Massive resistance to the Supreme Court decision, it seems, at the DOJ.

But the vulgarities inside DOJ weren’t confined to Perez. Remember the Voting Section attorney Daniel Freeman who led the booing against Paul Ryan at the inauguration (and was profiled by PJ Media here)?

When the Supreme Court issued the ruling, Freeman let loose a loud “shit” that reverberated across the building according to people familiar with the events.

Other things happened at the meeting which indicated Holder and company are interested in “massive résistance 2013” and cooking up work-arounds to the Supreme Court’s opinion.  Expect more mischief from a Department known for mischief.  And if you are a state or local election official, don’t take their calls.

The DOJ defying the Supreme Court? Why would anyone be surprised?

After all, the DOJ defied Congress in the Fast and Furious investigation, and nothing happened. Eric Holder has no respect for any law he doesn't personally approve of. And if he approves of it, the Supreme Court's opinion doesn't count.
