If you’re going to toot your own horn, it might be wise to be sure you’re playing a happy tune…
Last September Secretary of Labor nominee Thomas Perez boasted, “We have opened 20 civil investigations under the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, and filed eight complaints under the Act – compared to just one civil FACE Act case in the eight years of the previous administration.”
In April, the Justice Department paid Mary Susan Pine $120,000 in lawyers’ fees after wrongly accusing her of violating the 1994 FACE law. Pro-life blogger Jill Stanek has noted the Justice Department has a poor record on the remaining FACE cases during Perez’s tenure, never having won a single conviction.
Liberals seem to thrive on mediocrity. Looks like we’re going to get more of the same from the administration.
