Fed­eral ap­pointees’ war on con­ser­va­tives

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - CHARLEY MORASCH Lea­wood, Kansas

If you ever won­dered just what was meant by the abused term “war on women,” you might want to ask Cather­ine En­gel­brecht, a hard-work­ing small-business owner who has been il­le­gally ha­rassed by the Fed­eral Bureau of In­ves­ti­ga­tion, the In­ter­nal Rev­enue Ser­vice, the Bureau of Al­co­hol, To­bacco, Firearms and Ex­plo­sives and the Oc­cu­pa­tional Safety and Health Ad­min­is­tra­tion sim­ply be­cause she had the temer­ity to start a con­ser­va­tive po­lit­i­cal or­ga­ni­za­tion.

As if that were not enough of a real war on a woman, Ms. En­gel­brecht’s vic­tim­iza­tion only con­tin­ues at the hands of fed­eral Judge Reg­gie B. Walton, a U.S. Dis­trict judge who dis­missed the law­suit by her group True the Vote, and up to 41 other or­ga­ni­za­tions that have had their con­sti­tu­tional rights abused by cor­rupt IRS bu­reau­crats — prov­ing that a fed­eral judge can be just as dis­hon­est as any pres­i­den­tial ap­pointee or de­part­men­tal bu­reau­crat.

Judge Walton may think he is pro­tect­ing his gov­ern­ment, but he is not. The “rule of law” means noth­ing if fed­eral bu­reau­crats are not held to the same ac­count­abil­ity as cit­i­zens. It will not be long be­fore many other Americans be­gin to show the same in­dif­fer­ence and dis­re­spect for law that Lois Lerner, Judge Walton and many other pres­i­den­tial ap­pointees have so bla­tantly shown.

For the sake of our na­tion, it is my hope that other fed­eral judges and of­fi­cials who share the in­tegrity of Ms. En­gel­brecht will do their duty and re­veal the truth.
