DOJ takes first step to restore justice: Uber-partisan Loretta King resigns from Civil Rights Division..

A heartwarming report from Pajamas Media Tatler:  Loretta King, Deputy Assistant Attorney-General is resigning.  She's the one who blocked the slam-dunk judgement against the billy-club-armed Black Panthers at the Philadelphia polling station.

"As the highest ranking career lawyer in the Division, King once hauled former Voting Section Chief Christopher Coates into her office and angrily ordered him to stop asking job applicants whether they would enforce the Voting Rights Act against all violators regardless of their race. She is the official who rejected a change from partisan to nonpartisan elections in Kinston, N.C., that had been approved by black voters because she did not believe they would know which candidates to vote for without a party label. She cost the American taxpayer almost $600,000 in attorneys’ fees and costs after she lost a frivolous redistricting case filed against the state of Georgia in which the court said it was “disturbed” by the “considerable influence of ACLU advocacy” on the decisions made by the DOJ lawyers. King was promptly promoted after that decision". 

Christian Adams, formerly of the DOJ Civil Rights Division, has a book coming out this week describing even more "outlandish conduct" in the "rancid world" of Obama's Justice Department. As he observes, "It was a good week to resign".  From reviews: "This book exposes on-going, current malfeasance and breach of the public trust in the United States Department of Justice. "
To quote Isaiah:"No one calls for justice; no one pleads his case with integrity. They rely on empty arguments and speak lies; they conceive trouble and give birth to evil". Isaiah 59.4 NIV
Justice must be just.
