Make note of senators who sided with radical
President Barack Obama nominated Debo Adegbile to head the Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division.
Adegbile is a radical lawyer who successfully got an unrepentant cop killer off death row. Mumia Abu-Jamal murdered a Philadelphia police officer 32 years ago and, with overwhelming evidence, was convicted and sentenced to death. Adegbile not only represented Abul-Jamal but participated in rallies and helped perpetuate an international propaganda campaign that transferred this cop killer into a celebrated civil rights victim.
Adegbile was rejected by the U.S. Senate by a vote of 47 to 52, but there is a possibility of another attempt at confirmation.
Never miss a local story.
Both California Sens. Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein voted to confirm Adegbile. I had written on two separate occasions to both senators giving background on this nomination and urging them not to approve Adegbile but never got a reply.
Law enforcement groups sent letters to the president and to the Senate objecting to this nomination. It is obvious from our senators’ votes that they are on the side of radicals and cop killers and not on the side of law-abiding citizens.
Remember how they voted when they run for re-election.
