Barack Obama’s AG Nominee Loves To Steal

A BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR … 

By FITSNEWS || U.S. President Barack Obama‘s nominee to replace the lawlessly corrupt Eric Holder as U.S. Attorney General has a bit of problem when it comes to stealing.

Actually, Obama’s pick – Loretta Lynch – has a big problem when it comes to stealing, a billion-dollar-a-year problem.

We’re referring, of course, to “civil asset forfeiture” – which is government’s term for taking your property with no due process (often without even accusing you of committing a crime).  We’ve railed against this organized thievery here in South Carolina – most notably the “Rolling Facism” of Spartanburg County, S.C. Sheriff Chuck Wright – but Lynch’s office has engaged civil asset forfeiture to the tune of $904 million.

In one fiscal year …

An editorial in The Wall Street Journal this week referred to civil asset forfeiture as “policing for profit.”

“Liberals and conservatives have begun to question forfeiture as an abuse of due process that can punish the innocent,” the editorial added.

That’s putting it politely …

“Civil asset forfeiture is one of the greatest threats to private property in modern America, and Lynch is one of the pioneering legal minds in the country advocating it,” opined Poor Richard’s News.  “It is one of the worst practices in police work today, and President Obama wants to make one of the worst offenders the nation’s top cop.”

Not only that, Obama is trying to get Lynch’s nomination pushed through the U.S. Senate before it falls under “Republican” control in January.

Let’s hope he’s unsuccessful in that effort …
