A former Congressman has accused President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder of a racial ulterior motive in a massive early prison release planned for up to 10,000 drug dealers.

Ernest Istook, a former U.S. Congressman and writer for the Washington Times, pointed out on his radio program that “Obama claims minorities usually get longer terms than whites, so he wants to shorten their time served. He says letting them out of prison early will save taxpayers money.”

Most of the prisoners were convicted for crack cocaine violations, almost always for dealing or possession with intent to sell. Istook went on to say, “It’s like what President Obama claimed about marijuana, namely that enforcing anti-drug laws is unfair to minorities. When minorities commit a crime more often than other groups, rather than trying to fix behavior, Obama screams racism and says we shouldn’t enforce that law.”
