The U.S. Department of Justice has finally found something to do.
Since investigating multiple “fake” scandals like the White House Benghazi cover-up and IRS targeting of conservatives seem so petty, Holder’s crew have been itching for something worthy to investigate.
A controversial float in the Norfolk Independence Day parade is just the ground-breaking case they were hoping for.
“One of the floats included a zombie-like mannequin standing near an outhouse labeled ‘Obama Presidential Library,'” Omaha World-Herald reported.
According to the World-Herald :
The department sent a member of its Community Relations Service team, which gets involved in discrimination disputes, to a Thursday meeting about the issue. Also at the meeting were the NAACP, the Norfolk mayor and The Odd Fellows.
Dale Remmich said he created the float because he is upset with the president’s handling of the Veterans Affairs Department, and the mannequin was meant to depict himself, not President Obama.
The Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the group that organized the annual parade, said the float was registered as political satire and was one of the most popular at this year’s event. Remmich maintains the float was never meant to be racist, but rather an expression of free speech.
The state Democrats are outraged and when Democrats are outraged, well, then it’s a real scandal.
