The Philadelphia Bulletin reports that Virginia Congressman Frank Wolf, a Republican, is continuing to prod the Justice Department over its failure to prosecute New Black Panthers who stood, menacingly, outside a Fairmount polling station on Election Day 2008. "Mr. Wolf introduced a Resolution of Inquiry last Wednesday and it has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee. Under House rules, committees must take action on resolutions of inquiry within 14 legislative days.  Wolf’s resolution directs the U.S. attorney general to provide Congress will 'all information' relating to the decision to dismiss the case. The committee must vote the resolution up or down. ... Despite writing six requests to the attorney general six times Wolf has yet to receive a response. He also has written DOJ’s inspector general seeking answers." Read it at the Philadelphia Bulletin.
