Is DOJ "engaged in a massive coverup of its politicization of voting rights cases"?

That's John Fund's incendiary charge based upon the allegation that DOJ official Julie Fernandes stressed using DOJ resources to further minority access rather than pursue NVRA suits against states for not purging their voter rolls.
Even if true, this seems to be the usual kind of shift of emphasis that comes from a change in Administrations with differing philosophies on voting rights, rather than an effort at "covering up" "politicization."
