Who guards the guards?

Via WSJ, a report that the officials who are supposed to be investigating voter fraud are in fact Obama donors, in contravention of the law:

It doesn’t help Justice’s credibility that attorneys charged with supervising voting issues are avowed Barack Obama supporters. According to Federal Election Commission data, James Walsh, an attorney in the Civil Rights Division, has donated at least $300 to Mr. Obama. His boss, Mark Kappelhoff, has given $2,250 — nearly the maximum. John Russ, also in Civil Rights, gave at least $600 to Mr. Obama.

A Justice Department spokeswoman declined to make these attorneys available to us, though she didn’t deny that the contributions were made. She noted that the Hatch Act does not forbid federal employees from donating to candidates, and that Justice’s internal “standards for recusal” on prosecutions depend on any “given situation.” Apparently so.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

The last guardians of democracy are the citizens themselves. Us.

We cannot let America fall to this madness.
