Obama Says Reassignment of DoJ Voting Rights Chief to New Appointment 'Unacceptable'


Obama Says Reassignment of DoJ Voting Rights Chief to New Appointment 'Unacceptable'
Says 'Administration is Simply Shuffling Deck Chairs' by Moving John 'Minorities Die First' Tanner to New Post in Same Division

Conyers and Nadler Also Issue Statement, More Upbeat, Hopeful About Resignation of Tanner

A spokesman for Barack Obama (D-MI) sent us a statement decrying John Tanner's announced resignation today from his post as Chief of the DoJ Civil Rights Division's voting section (reported earlier here: http://www.bradblog.com/?p=5441 ), charging that his move to another post within the Civil Rights division amounts to little more than "simply shuffling deck chairs."

2. What are the OTHER CANDIDATES saying about this
I suppose that if we go thru another news cycle and the other leading Dem candidates remain silent, that raises questions.

whoever is on top of this story, plz keep it updated
