DOJ Spends Public Funds on Anti-Zimmerman Rallies

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Things in this administration get crazier and crazier by the day. Today's craziness involves revelation that the Department of Justice used public funds to organize rallies against George Zimmerman following the shooting of Trayvon Martin.

The Washington Times reports:
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.”
