Governor Palin: DOJ ‘Misuse of Funds’ is ‘Unbelievable’

Governor Palin expressed major displeasure at the Department of Justice for using money to organize anti-Zimmerman protests:

The article she shares says the following:

The legal watchdog Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained documents revealing the  Community Relations  Service (CRS), a unit of the Department of Justice, was  deployed to  Sanford, Fla., following the death of Trayvon Martin to help organize  rallies against George Zimmerman.

According to the documents, from March 25 to March 27,  CRS spent  $674.14  upon being “deployed to Sanford, Fla., to work marches,   demonstrations, and  rallies related to the shooting and death of an   African-American teen by a  neighborhood watch captain.”


Judicial Watch also revealed:

March  25 – 28, 2012, CRS spent $1,142.84 “in Sanford, FL to  work marches,   demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and  death of an   African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.”

March 30 – April 1, 2012, CRS spent $892.55 in Sanford, Fla., “to provide  support for protest deployment in Florida.”

March  30 – April 1, 2012, CRS spent an additional $751.60 in  Sanford, Fla.,  “to  provide technical assistance to the City of Sanford,  event organizers,   and law enforcement agencies for the march and rally  on March 31.”

April  3 – 12, 2012, CRS spent $1,307.40 in Sanford, Fla., “to  provide  technical  assistance, conciliation, and onsite mediation during  demonstrations  planned in Sanford.”

April  11-12, 2012, CRS spent $552.35 in Sanford, Fla., “to  provide  technical  assistance for the preparation of possible marches  and rallies  related  to the fatal shooting of a 17 year old African  American male.”

Just another example of how our government has forgotten its place.

    Hate to disagree with Sarah on this one, but with this DOJ it is totally believable.

  • BrianusBerkleianus

    Thank you, Governor; thank you, Steve!!

    THIEVES and ROBBERS are what they are.

    They STEAL our money; then they misuse it.

    They have got to go!!

      Imagine the 20-30 "ethics complaints" that Sarah Palin defended against? Each one unjstified and a distraction. Where are the Republican efforts to discredit people like Holder? We know the answer, she is Sarah Palin. She is talking, writing and she will not sit down while the corruptocrats and lawless adminitrators in the DOJ are running roughshod.

      • BrianusBerkleianus

        Thank you, Reynolds!

      • lyndaaquarius

        more and more Americans are watching Sarah Palin speak out and defend us and our freedoms. Millions are now noticing who’s got our back.

    • Tom Ferriday

      Sadly, Brian, I don’t think most Americans even know or care about what Obama is doing to our country. This is why so many of us are terrified of the future. All of the concerns we had about the results of the events of the 1960s and 1970s have come true.

      Sic semper tyrannis.

      • BrianusBerkleianus

        Thanks, Tom!

  • friskyness

    that’s unconstitutional……..the federal government is to protect ALL citizens, not just the people they like…………….Sarah is right……UNBELIEVABLE that they get away with it…………

    • DocBarry1

      Congress stand up to this

      • Budvarakbar

        Fat chance of that

  • section9

    It’s very believable, and with this DOJ, these amounts are petty cash, but it’s the principle of the Thing.

  • Jthom26837

    Wait, WTF! Using our tax dollars to apply the ‘Alinsky Method’ against Zimmermann and the local courts? I’m &!$$39!!!!

  • tired and fed-up

    Criminals – but who is going to stop them?

    • conservativemama

      No one in DC.

  • DocBarry1

    When iscthe house/senate going to do something Stand up and say ENOUGH ALREADY

  • Ceejay

    Government out of control, When is using "OPM" wrong, and where is the accountability?

  • conservativemama

    Bad enough the misuse of taxpayer money. Bad enough attacking groups of people. But this president and his team go after individuals…….Zimmerman…reporters….the man still in jail for the video Hillary blamed Benghazi on……people organizing tea parties.

    We are in the crosshairs of our own government.

    • jester2939

      Well said.

  • Victoria Richardson

    This is unacceptable and I think the Zimmerman family should sue the DOJ for what they have done.

    • Reynolds88

      Good idea!

  • Reynolds88

    Who else is taking these shots first, hard and without equivocation? At Kerry, Hollder and of course, Obama.

    The Republicans (including Mrs. Bush 41) are cowering in their seats. "Sit down Sarah Palin, go back to Alaska!" Well Sarah Palin says, I just might do that? (oh noees!) Then again, Sarah Palin says to Hannity, , "I beat the machine in Alaska, and will do it again "if needed" and who are these corrupt politicians in DC?" -Sarah Palin will not sit down and we are glad of that!

    Sarah Palin leads and even her interest in those who have encouraged her to run for Senate, has Begich (and more than a few Republicans) running into the corner, while MSNBC people load spit balls into their little pea shooters. -Sarah Palin is moving and continues, taking shots at will, at the corrupt administration.

    "Because the harder they come, the harder they fall, one and all" (Jimmy Cliff).

  • Tom Ferriday

    Once again, if Romney had been elected and used taxpayer money to fund pro-Zimmerman rallies, there would be calls for impeachment. And, as always, the GOP has no guts to even pursue this matter.

    • Reynolds88

      sad but true

  • OldPat

    Looks like railroads, kangaroos and half-Nelson judges are the order of the day.
    Have you given any thought to what you’re gonna do when it’s you they’re after?

  • jester2939

    This should be unbelievable, but sadly it’s not.

  • cuatrocinco45

    Was just about to agree. One of the few times I disagree with her. It’s totally believable.

  • Escaped_Teleprompter

    The Department of Justice is outrageous: Its misuse of public funds is bad enough, but worse still is the DOJ’s deliberate decision to fan racial tension and incite civil unrest by staging those protests, marches and demonstrations.
    The Department of Justice has become a rabble-rousing radical agitator like a big taxpayer-funded ACORN.

  • Finrod Felagund

    Can you imagine how much the MSM would whine if the government was funding Tea Party protests?

  • Lennart Bilén

    Thanks Sarah for posting this. It reminded me of how it all got started:

    “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” Obama said during a press gathering in the Rose Garden, after he was asked about the incident that sparked national debate after intense lobbying by the CRS (1).

    Obama’s most “teachable moment”.
    In hatred he’s making a statement:
    “Trayvon Martin, my son
    Is us all, not just one.
    This case is because of my pigment.”

    I reposted the release with the limerick

  • Ivee Carl

    How could they use public money to set up rallies?! I’m sorry Sarah but DOJ’s believable on this.
