Voting Section Coates Fired

Who is that, you ask?

Coates signed off on the controversial voter intimidation complaint against the New Black Panther Party and three of its members, filed in the waning days of the George W. Bush administration. The Obama DOJ’s decision to dismiss most of the charges in May has become a political controversy for the administration.

Note that the controversy wasn’t in making the complaint, it was in dropping the complaint, which Coates apparently had no part in.
