…..Last week it was Alabama, this week it’s Arizona and Washington State!
I’m going out of town in a few minutes so I don’t have time to do this post justice, but Maryland’s gift to Obama, attack dog Thomas Perez, is at it again. I’m wondering if they are seeing the end to the Obama regime only a year away and are moving in for the kill in as many places as they can. LOL! I envision Obama and Holder saying of Perez, ‘let ’em lose!’ (An important goal of the Hard Left is to undermine the authority of law enforcement.)
Surely you’ve heard elsewhere that Perez released a hit piece on Sheriff Joe in Arizona yesterday, here.
Dec. 15 (Bloomberg) — An Arizona sheriff’s department with a reputation for being tough on crime discriminated against Latinos through a pattern of unlawful stops, arrests and biased jail practices, the U.S. Justice Department said.
The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office engaged in a “pattern and practice of violating the Constitution” and federal law, Thomas Perez, assistant attorney general in charge of the civil rights division, said today in a telephone news briefing. The continuing investigation also revealed “serious concerns” that Sheriff Joe Arpaio, 79, and deputies didn’t investigate crimes adequately or provide police protection to the Latino community.
“MCSO is broken in a number of critical respects,” Perez said, referring to the sheriff’s office. “The problems are deeply rooted in MCSO’s culture and are compounded by MCSO’s penchant for retaliation against individuals who speak out.”
Today he will fly out to Seattle to attack law enforcement there (here):
A federal civil-rights investigation into the Seattle Police Department has found routine and widespread use of excessive force by officers, and city and police officials were told at a stormy Thursday night meeting that they must fix the problems or face a federal lawsuit, according to two sources.
The meeting, attended by Mayor Mike McGinn, Police Chief John Diaz, members of his command staff and others, ended in raised voices and bitter accusations by city and police officials, upset at the Justice Department’s findings, the sources said. One source said the language in the agency’s report, to be officially released Friday, is “astoundingly critical” of the department.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas Perez, who heads the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, flew to Seattle from Phoenix on Thursday and will address a 9:30 a.m. Friday news conference alongside U.S. Attorney Jenny Durkan.
Read both of those articles.
In the meantime, and so as not to lose the link, Perez has suffered a setback in Maryland, his home turf, on the Dream Act law suit (Perez is a former CASA de Maryland board member and you know he is following this closely). His good buddy, Joey ‘the silencer’ Sandler (and DNC top dog) isn’t doing very well so far according to an editorial in the Washington Examiner:
CASA’s lead attorney in this political case is Joseph Sandler, a former Democratic National Committee lawyer who is now representing the financial interests of illegal immigrants against the constitutional rights of Maryland citizens.

Still waiting for answers—why did Tony O’Donnell and John Kane support Perez for the Justice Department job?
