Dan Abrams began a new series Monday chronicling the politicization of the Civil Rights Department of the DOJ under George W. Bush. Politicization would be a polite euphemism for turning the very basis for the creation of a Civil Rights Department inside out. And like everything else about the Bush Administration, it appears its sole focus is to operate on a strictly partisan basis and without regard to competency.
This is a subject that has been tirelessly investigated by blogs like BradBlog (See here, here, here, here, and here) , TPMMuckraker (See here, here, here, here and here) and Greg Palast, so it's about time this got some MSM attention.
My HUGE thanks to Heather for the videos and links.
