J. Christian Adams

By: Renee

J. Christian Adams is an election lawyer who served in the Voting Rights Section at the U.S. Department of Justice. His website is http://www.electionlawcenter.com.

FOX News reports: J. Christian Adams, testifying  before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, said that “over and over and over again,” the department showed “hostility” toward those cases. He described the Black Panther case as one example of that — he defended the legitimacy of the suit and said his “blood boiled” when he heard a Justice official claim the case wasn’t solid.

“It is false,” Adams said of the claim.

“We abetted wrongdoing and abandoned law-abiding citizens,” he later testified.

The department abandoned the New Black Panther case last year. It stemmed from an incident on Election Day in 2008 in Philadelphia, where members of the party were videotaped in front of a polling place, dressed in military-style uniforms and allegedly hurling racial slurs while one brandished a night stick.

There is a new story at DOJ. It is unfolding very rapidly. Please post all the information you all find on this story. There are loose  threads everywhere. Information seems to be coming out very fast at this time. Please post here on this everyone.

        BREAKING: A Third Former DOJ Official Steps Forward to Support J. Christian Adams (Updated)

        Former DOJ employees want to go on record praising Adams’ outstanding work record, and — pay attention, DOJ press liaisons — maybe corroborate Adams’ charges about DOJ hostility to race-neutral law enforcement.

        July 6, 2010 Share | Several former DOJ employees have been in contact with Pajamas Media, interested in publicly supporting J. Christian Adams as he comes forward about the DOJ’s failure to enforce the country’s laws from a race-neutral perspective.

        These former DOJ employees have expressed a willingness to go on record regarding Adams’ professionalism, excellent performance, and outstanding record of enforcing the law without racial bias.

        Additionally, they would like to corroborate Adams’ statements about the DOJ.

        And perhaps — pay attention, DOJ press liaisons — offer their own accounts regarding the DOJ’s hostility to race-neutral law enforcement.

        Watch this space today, and over the next few days, for additional statements from former DOJ employees.

        First, here is Asheesh Agarwal. From 2006-2008, Asheesh Agarwal served as a deputy assistant attorney general in the Civil Rights Division. In that position, Agarwal supervised the Division’s Voting Section, which included Adams, and worked directly with Adams on several matters. Agarwal is currently an attorney in private practice.

        During his tenure with the Department of Justice’s Voting Section, J. Christian Adams was a model attorney who vigorously enforced federal voting rights laws on behalf of all voters, without respect to race or ideology. Mr. Adams was also one of the most productive and successful voting attorneys in recent memory.

        His victories include two cases on behalf of African-American voters under Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, two cases on behalf of white voters under Section 2, and six cases on behalf of Hispanic voters under Section 203 of the Voting Rights Act. He also brought and won three cases on behalf of military voters. Having worked closely with Mr. Adams for several years, I can attest to the unsurpassed quality of his character, judgment, and commitment to the cause of civil rights on behalf of all Americans.

        UPDATE: Mark Corallo, former Department of Justice director of public affairs, submits a statement to Pajamas Media:

        As the Department of Justice director of public affairs under Attorney General John Ashcroft, I witnessed the hostility of the “career” Civil Rights Division attorneys firsthand.

        Internal disagreements over policy routinely became matters for the press, via leaks to reporters or leaks to Democrat members of Congress. They had no compunction about breaking the ethical requirement of attorneys to keep those internal deliberations confidential.

        I am not surprised that the Department is attacking J. Christian Adams. The Civil Rights Division attorneys have no interest in the rule of law as written and passed by Congress — the New Black Panther case is glaring proof that the Division has an agenda. If Congress was truly interested in oversight, there would be hearings on this case and others.

        J. Christian Adams did the honorable thing in resigning and speaking out.

        Democrats constantly complained about the lack of oversight when Republicans were the majority party in Congress. Can any reasonable person imagine the Democrats ignoring a case of blatant violations of the Voting Rights Act (captured on video) brought by career Civil Rights Division attorneys being dismissed by a Republican attorney general?

  2. Wowee. Gotta watch this closely.

    It is really refreshing to have our politicians speak the truth. Thank you for having the courage to do that. Obama has done 1 good thing for our Great Country–exposed the endless corruption. What kind of role models do our children have? My 12 year old grandson and his friends are talking about our government ignoring the Constitution and our laws. I have never been involved in politics but realize I have got to start taking a STAND. Thank you J. Christian Adams for doing what you know is right in your heart. Arlene Harshbarger, Kokomo, In.

  4. We definitely need Mr. Adams serving We the People in DC ! Hope he runs ! Surely someone has already asked him, probably multiple times!
    Very encouraging that he is speaking out and taking a stand; now if he can convince the others to follow suit. Unlike Mr. Adams, they most likely love their “cushy job” and big money more than our free nation !

    Stand Up Now America !

  6. State of Georgia continues to Verify Voters
    By Bill Rankin

    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

    Thousands of Georgians were recently told they need to provide proof of citizenship before their votes can be counted in next Tuesday’s primaries.

    More than 4,200 were flagged by Georgia’s voter verification process, which is under legal attack and continues to await approval by the U.S. Justice Department or the federal courts. A recent court order allows the secretary of state’s office to continue the process, even though some of the people being flagged are citizens and eligible to vote.

    As in 2008, flagged voters may cast “challenged ballots” in the upcoming primaries and have the opportunity to prove their citizenship.

    Secretary of State Brian Kemp said the verification system is required by law and prevents voter fraud.

    “My job is to ensure a fair, secure and accessible elections process for every Georgia citizen who is eligible to vote,” he said. “Every ballot cast by a noncitizen erases a ballot cast by an eligible Georgia voter.”

    ….Justice Dept. called the process “seriously flawed”….But last month, the same panel of judges allowed Georgia to continue asking prospective voters….to prove citizenship. ..


    What about all you regulars here and those who just stop by to read??? How is voting handled in your state? Seems DOJ wants just any and everybody to vote….hope the “Finders of Fact” will continue to stick to the Constitution and original intent !

    • According to the whistleblower, the DOJ most certainly cares only about “turnout,” not vote fraud or voter intimidation. Only turnout. They don’t care if the people can legally vote, just so long as they turn out to vote.

      They’re RACIST in their approach to enforcing the law, if that whistleblower is telling the truth, because they will NOT enforce the law if the perp is black and the victim is white. I’m sure this applies also to when the victim is the white majority of this country, which may see their votes canceled out by illegal “brown” votes.

      In the minds of the racists at the DOJ, this is “social justice” because it’s payback for when their ancestors (if applicable) couldn’t vote or were themselves intimidated at the polls. Retribution, reparations, revenge. Take your pick.

      This is not a post-racial administration. Far from it. It’s a racial spoils sytem, patronage, corruption–set up to create an elite class of favored “persons of color” at the expense of everyone else. It’s Third World logic. Like in those backward societies where when a woman is raped, the men in her family get “justice” by being allowed to rape the female relatives of the rapist. In their twisted minds, two wrongs make a right and justice can be achieved by victimizing yet another innocent person.

      Of course, eejits like “Doctor” Lamont Hill will say that blacks can’t be racists because racism requires power. His argument, though, falls apart when he says the DOJ isn’t racist or the NAACP isn’t racist because now both groups have PLENTY of power. Don’t they?

  7. Miri, See the 2 lists I posted for Redpill. Hill name is on there…

    Doctor” Lamont Hill noted above .Humm..

    Sworn affidavits from Hans A. von Spakovsky and Karl Bowers, who worked with J. Christian Adams in the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division, offer broad confirmation of the whistleblower’s accusations of bias in enforcing voting rights.

    Two draft letters are whizzing around the offices and electronic in-boxes of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights today, both intended to be delivered to Attorney General Eric Holder, demanding that Holder live up to his pledges of transparency and rectitude in Department of Justice (DoJ) affairs. The most explosive demand is for documents whose existence was first reported by Jennifer Rubin and Daniel Halper in The Weekly Standard (online) on Oct. 1, namely one memo each from the two attorneys who brought the New Black Panther voter intimidation case, both of which reportedly made specific allegations of race-based enforcement decisions within the Civil Rights Division and the Voting Rights Section of DoJ. The key thing here is that both memos were reportedly given to Civil Rights Division chief Thomas Perez before Perez testified under oath to the Commission on Civil Rights that he was unaware of, and would never countenance, such race-based decision-making. In short, if the memos’ content is as now believed, they would raise serious questions — again — about Mr. Perez’ truthfulness under oath.

    Mr. Perez gave his testimony on May 14. Specifically, one of the new letters, in draft form, says the following:
