That took less than 24 hours. Jennifer Rubin has the exclusive news at the Washington Post. Lamar Smith is demanding answers. The speed in which this demand came out of the New Congress sends a message.
UPDATE: Jennifer Rubin's piece at the Washington Post notes that the letter is five pages long. It demands to know why the DOJ wants so much more money, and in this context demands answers on New Black Panthers and the unwillingness to enforce Section 8 of the NVRA. And Lamar Smith, according to Rubin, states the obvious: the DOJ has blown this matter from the moment Steven Rosenbaum and Loretta King became belligerent hacks toward Chris Coates, to the moment they could have just gotten the injunctions and moved on, to the time they could have just told the truth and confessed error. It is a textbook example how not to captain a ship, and how not to captain a ship that springs a leak. From Rubin's Washington Post piece:
"The letter is noteworthy on a number of levels. First, administration flacks and liberal bloggers have insisted that the New Black Panther Party case is much to do about nothing. But as Smith has correctly discerned, the issue of enforcement or non-enforcement of civil rights laws based on a non-colorblind view of those laws is serious and a potentially explosive issue for this administration. Second, Holder's strategy of stonewalling during the first two years of Obama's term may have backfired. Had he been forthcoming while Democrats were in the majority, he might have been able to soften the blows; Smith is not about to pull his punches. And finally, Smith is demonstrating the sort of restraint and big-picture focus that is essential for the Republicans if they are to remain credible and demonstrate their capacity for governance."
UPDATE TWO: A further review of Chairman Smith's letter reveals that Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes is also on Smith's radar. It is clear that she is now in the cross-hairs of the House Judiciary Committee, and that is a very unwelcome place to be in Washington D.C. One saw how Democrats running the House and Senate Judiciary Committee handled the DOJ in 2006-2008. Fernandes is the one who refuses to enforce Section 8 of Motor Voter to remove ineligible voters from the rolls. The piper wants to be paid.
UPDATE THREE: I discuss Smith's letter in greater detail at NewsReal here.

Congress gets another atta boy.
Congress, keep in mind that five 'atta boys' get cancelled by one 'aw shit'.
Old Military Reward System.
Congress, please remember this Reward System.
You have three atta boys now. "Reading the Constitution"; "Challenging Place Holder"; "Challenging the Health Bill"
Not sure how the cancellation side works. It most probably is a rolling cancellation. Last Five get cancelled. But, you can have multiple cancellations in a row and can go negative fast.
Results are what count.
We're still watching.
I'm liking that! Think positive everybody.
The same Lamar Smith is also wanting to investigate the Pigford Farm scandal?
I am lovin this Texan!
I do believe it is time to brush off an old project and put laws on every state's books to control Elections.
In the Lawyer Maskell Paper, he lied about Obama's Eligibility by avoiding the references to Vatell that are in our Constitutional History, the reference to Washington and Jay discussing the use of "natural born citizen" as a eligibility requirement and adopting that statement and the "actual Law of Nations" in our existing Constitution that has never been overturned or questioned until now. We have developed a "CUSTOM" which becomes common law practice to vet and prove the eligibility of a presidential candidate (at three points in our CUSTOM). This was circumvented with the PELOSI act of conspiracy.
The Maskell Memorandum is attached. You only need to read the first three paragraphs. The rest is bull shit perpetrated with conspiracy intent.
The second attachment is a draft letter that you could send to your State Congress to get your state laws tightened so that all presidential candidates have to prove their "natural born citizen" status to each State Supervisor of Elections before they can be placed on a State Ballot. This will end any and all discussion of the Obama Eligibility before 2012.
The third paper has been around for awhile. The contents also appear on other web sites. However, this paper was developed from data provided by States Referenced. There is no heresay data and the conclusion is based on facts. This is not a bitch slapping paper. If you read the events in this paper and compare them to the Lawyer Maskell paper you can conclude for yourself that the Maskell paper is also designed to divert attention from Obama to a BS point of view.
Then, take the letter and tailor it to your own words and mail to your State Legislatures. Five or six states are already drafting and reviewing law change. The bottom line, in case you have missed the issue completely, is that if enough states refuse to put OBAMA on the ballot, he cannot ever again get elected. JUST THAT SIMPLE. While at it, tighten up laws that PLACE HOLDER refuses to honor. Tighten up the correlation of illegal alien and voter so that illegals cannot vote. This will let you find the illegals as well as sundown ACORN and similar conspiritory and voter fraud related organizations.
Globally change the (xxx) in the StateCongress letter to your STATE Name before sending.
WE NEED ALL STATES TO HELP.
