Pajamas Media - Every Single One: The Politicized Hiring of Eric Holder’s Compliance Section →

August 26, 2011 - by J. Christian Adams
All 5 new hires to the Justice Department's Coordination and Compliance Section have far-left resumes — which were only released following a PJMedia lawsuit. (This is the seventh in a series of articles about the Justice Department's hiring practices since President Obama took office. Read parts one, two, three, four, five, and six.)

For several weeks, PJMedia has been publishing a series of articles on the ideological and partisan histories of attorney hires into the career civil service ranks of the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division in the Obama administration. The articles have demonstrated the political and ideological litmus test being employed by those entrusted with hiring in the Division.

Every single new attorney hired has a history thick with left-wing activism.

Two previous pieces focused on the Voting Section, with additional segments on the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices, the Special Litigation Section, the Education Section, and the Employment Litigation Section.

If the public had any idea just how politicized the Division has become under this administration, outrage would follow. I cover the policy ramifications of this ideological hiring frenzy in my forthcoming book Injustice. For now, here are more details about the people involved.
