Fox News identified GOP activist J. Christian Adams as a "DOJ atty" and "whistle-blower" while allowing him to advance his unsubstantiated allegations against the Obama administration. As Media Matters has noted, Adams is a long-time conservative activisit who was reportedly hired by a Bush appointee who politiced the Justice Department. Adams also reportedly volunteered with a Republican group -- the National Republican Lawyers Association -- that "trains lawyers to fight on the front lines of often racially tinged battles over voting rights." In 2003, Adams likened Obama to appeasers who caused "carnage" of WWII.
