Eric Holder gave a speech today at the NAACP where he spent a lot of time talking about the Trayvon Martin case.
He said a lot of things, and the media was all over it and continues to be so. But here is something you Eric Holder didn’t say anything about:
A government watchdog has found for the first time that confidential tax records of several political candidates and campaign donors were improperly scrutinized by government officials, but the Justice Department has declined to prosecute any of the cases.
Strangely enough Justice doesn’t have much to say on the subject:
“The Justice Department should answer completely and not hide behind taxpayer confidentiality laws to avoid accountability for its decision not to prosecute a violation of taxpayer confidentiality laws,” Mr. Grassley told The Times. “With the IRS on the hot seat over targeting certain political groups, it’s particularly troubling to learn about ‘willful unauthorized access’ of tax records involving individuals who were candidates for office or political donors. The public needs to know whether the decision not to prosecute these violations was politically motivated and whether the individuals responsible were held accountable in any other way.”
Oddly you aren’t seeing anything about this on the news.
Nor a thing about the economy either.
Edward Snowden who is he?
All of these things hurt liberalism, all of these things hurt Obama and all are drowed out by the Trayvon Martin Business in the MSM.
Never let a crisis go to waste
Closing thought, here is one Trayvon Martin/ Zimmerman story nobody is talking about:
According to Zimmerman attorney James Beasley, the case against NBC News was stayed pending the outcome of the criminal case. Now that’s out of the way, and Beasley is ready to proceed. “We’re going to start in earnest asap, we just have to get the stay lifted which is a ministerial act,” says Beasley, a Philadelphia lawyer, via e-mail.
and I suspect this case is going to be a lot easier to prove than you think:
if the Zimmerman team wants to show malice at NBC News, all they have to do is play MSNBC’s coverage of the trial and especially the acquittal. The anger and malice (and even more misinformation) didn’t just come from guest panelists on their coverage, it came from MSNBC’s hosts, paid by NBC News. The phrase “shooting fish in a barrel” comes to mind when proving this particular aspect of the case.
I must confess I can’t wait for this case to move forward but I suspect NBC will VERY quietly offer to settle.
I hope Zimmerman refuses.
