Bush League Justice: John Tanner Resigns

icon Download icon Download

Dan Abrams offers this update to last week's Bush League Justice series. DoJ Voting Chief John Tanner resigned last last week after his unbelievably stupid comments about minority lifespans and how voting rights laws discriminated against whites made it too difficult for even the Bush adminstration to wave off. But fear now, like most loyal Bushies, Tanner is not gone so much as he is pushed further into the shadows of a lower profile position with the DOJ.

And where has Mr. "Minorities Die Sooner" Tanner been moved to? The Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices. Oh, I bet he'll just be great at that job.
