Skip to comments.Court accused of covering for Obama in 'Walpingate'
Posted on 05/28/2010 9:02:14 PM PDT by conservativegramma
Former Inspector General Gerald Walpin, whose dismissal by President Obama last year has been challenged by congressmen as potentially illegal political retaliation, is now stepping up the battle to get his job back, accusing the judicial system of stalling his case and, thus, doing the White House a convenient favor.
Court documents filed last week accuse U.S. District Court Judge Richard Roberts of failing to act within federally mandated time requirements and "doing nothing at all" to move the case forward.
Similarly, a joint congressional report by Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., which found the administration had failed to comply with requirements of the law and "orchestrated an after-the-fact smear campaign to justify the president's action," has been allowed to languish.
Meanwhile, "Walpingate" fades from the public memory, and the White House has moved on to appoint Walpin's replacement, as though the scandal were resolved.

Wow... all the other crap going on I’d completely forgotten about this, as I’m sure most everyone else has also.
Alinsky was a smart guy.
I would like to see impeachment and conviction for this travesty alone, even more so than for Sestak. But if it takes several items (plenty of treasonous acts to apply), then so be it.
Another judge obstructing justice.
Yep. All 3 branches of govt are officially corrupted.
I think we just met Obama's choice to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg!
court system favoring liberals/progressives?
who would have seen that coming?? maybe every birther...
He’s not forgotten. Just like the travelgate fiasco from the Clinton era; they are framing an innocent man.
This also shows the Clintons and Obama are playing from the same rule book.
Doesn’t it seem that the wheels are falling off of everything at this time ? exspecially this administration.
I dunno how the American society can function so so much corruption everywhere. The swamp needs to be drained
I favor US government default on their debt
From your keyboard to God's ears......
Seems to me that Congressman Issa is one of the very, very few Republicans who have the courage to take on the (illegal) 0bama Regime.
A Clinton appointee. He fits the bill.
