Congressmen Darrell Issa, Lamar Smith and Patrick McHenry, along with Senator Chuck Grassley, the ranking member on the Judiciary Committee, are investigating the St. Paul quid pro quo, and with good reason. To recap: A senior Justice Department official, Mr. Perez, intervened to undermine two civil complaints against the City of St. Paul in order to get St. Paul to drop a Supreme Court case that might have blown apart the legal rationale for his dubious discrimination crusade against law-abiding businesses.Making the world more fair, through on unfair means. Awesome.

Another spoke in the wheel of corruption. Don't like how the Supreme Court might rule, pull some shady practices to get to the case before the Court can even hear the case. Not to mention the dubious practice of " disparate-impact theory, which purports to prove racial discrimination by examining statistics rather than intent or specific cases." You know, because, I guess the theory goes, if the outcome isn't fair, according to your standards, someone needs to be responsible. No matter how arbitrary and damaging the results of holding "someone responsible."
