Attorney General Eric Holder has radically altered the Justice Department, and not in a good way, says John Fund, a Newsmax contributor and national affairs correspondent for National Review Online.

"If you look at Eric Holder's record, he has polarized, politicized, and racialized the Justice Department more than any other attorney general,'' Fund, co-author of the new book "Obama's Enforcer,'' said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Fund cites a case involving the militant Black Panthers group.

"This was a case in which Black Panthers, wearing military-style uniforms and carrying side weapons, were intimidating voters in the Philadelphia polling place.

"The Bush Justice Department in its final days prosecuted. Black Panthers didn't show up in court. We now know that perhaps they knew the fix was in because Eric Holder basically dismissed the case with almost no sanctions whatsoever.

"So, that was a case in which clearly if whites had been doing it, something very serious would have happened to them, versus New Black Panthers, no author of the new book, "Obama's Enforcer."

Fund's book, co-written with Hans von Spakovsky, is published by Broadside Books.
