No-Justice Department

John at Americablog caught this story about how Bush's appointees at the Justice Department overruled the carrer analysts and lawyers who had recommended that the 2003 Texas congressional redistricting plan be rejected as a violation of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Remember, this is the stunt that Tom DeLay pulled, using "laundered" money, for which he was just indicted.

It seems that the same thing happened in a Mississippi redistricting case a couple of years back, and in a Georgia voter ID law that the state tried to pass this year. In each case, Bush's people were stepping in to let these Southern states change their voting laws in ways that hurt black, Hispanic, or poor voters.

But the GOP swears it cares about black voters. You believe them, right?
