Shutdown won’t stop Holder’s Zimmerman chase
Amazing how liberals get to pick and choose what they want to stay open.

Those who feared that the shutdown of the federal government would curtail the continued persecution of George Zimmerman need not worry.
On Monday, Attorney General Eric Holder assured the faithful that the civil-rights investigation into the February 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla., was “ongoing.”
Holder, who had summoned reporters to boast of a federal lawsuit against North Carolina for its new voter ID laws, told the media that the Department of Justice would release information on the Zimmerman case as soon as possible.
Those paying attention, which excludes most of the media, knew that the real investigation ended more than a year ago.
The federal investigation started weeks after the shooting when the Martin family attorney, Benjamin Crump, wrote a letter to Holder asking him to put the FBI on the case. Crump’s allies in Congress circulated that same letter to keep the pressure on Holder.
A notorious obstructionist on issues unfavorable to the White House – the New Black Panther party voter intimidation case comes quickly to mind – Holder did not take long to weigh the pros and cons of the Zimmerman case.
