A lawyer who resigned in protest from his government job took his message of an out-of-control Justice Department to the Port City on May 21, 2013, focusing on several Alabama anecdotes.
J. Christian Adams spoke to the Mobile chapter of the Federalist Society, a conservative legal group, about an ends-justifies-the-means mentality that he contends has infected the Justice Department under Attorney General Eric Holder.
Adams, author of “Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department,” rose to prominence in 2010 after alleging that political considerations scuttled the prosecution of members of the New Black Panther Party accused of intimidating white voters in Philadelphia during the 2008 election.
Adams said Holder and political appointees are undermining the rule of law. The framers drafted the Constitution to prevent that kind of corruption, he said.
“They had these guys in mind,” he said. Adams discussed three parts of his book dealing with Alabama – its history of voter fraud, its inflated voter registration rolls and its attempt to enact a voter identification law.
Adams cited Perry and Hale counties, both of which have a history of voter fraud – particularly with respect to absentee voting. He said “wranglers” have filled out absentee ballots in local elections and coerced residents to sign them “by the hundreds.”
