NEXT THEY’LL TELL US GOVERNMENT HAS FEWER CROOKS: How else can they explain why the Department of Justice under President Obama has filed fewer public corruption cases each year than either of his two predecessors? The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group’s Katie Watson sums it up: “The Obama administration has filed an annual average of 390 such prosecutions, which represents a 16 percent decrease from the Bush and Clinton years.”

Alternative explanation: “A particular problem with this Justice Department is if there are claims of corruption within Justice itself, they are the ones who ultimately make the decision to prosecute their own people,” the Heritage Foundation’s Hans von Spakovsky told Watson.
