Two hundred and ten pounds of irony reigned over Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice until 2007. A just released internal report at DoJ found Bradley Schlozman worked furiously to discriminate against applicants and employees who were not right wing idealogues. He said of a lawyer who graduated magna cum laude from a top law school and received positive performance ratings at Justice for 4 years straight, that she is an “idiot,” “an affirmative action thing,” and “writes in ebonics.”
Schlozman circulated an email quoting John Tanner, the chief of DoJ’s Voting Section, I like my coffee “Mary Frances Berry style–black and bitter.”
Yeah, this was Bush’s Civil Rights Division.
Schlozman was looking for ‘Right-Thinking Americans’ only. Conservatives. It’s illegal. A crime that will not be prosecuted. And I’d like to credit DOJ for cleaning it’s own closet, but this went on for years and only comes now as Justice’s reputation is destroyed.
Bring out Karl Rove’s head on a platter, then people will pay attention.
