President Obama's nomination to a top U.S. Justice Department post of a lawyer with links to the case of cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal was condemned Monday by Republican U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey and District Attorney Seth Williams, a Democrat.
With the Senate Judiciary Committee set to vote Thursday on Debo Adegbile's nomination to head the Civil Rights Division, the two joined Adegbile's opponents. White House officials had no comment on Toomey's opposition or Adegbile's nomination.
Toomey and Williams were to have appeared with police officials Monday at Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5 headquarters in Northeast Philadelphia. Although snow canceled the news conference, Toomey released a statement saying Adegbile's involvement with Abu-Jamal's case "raises serious questions about his judgment and fitness to execute the duties of assistant attorney general."
Leading the Civil Rights Division requires an "absolute commitment to truth and justice," Toomey said. "I do not believe that Mr. Adegbile demonstrated such a commitment in his handling of the Mumia Abu-Jamal case."

Obama says that he is a uniter, that he has tried to reach out to Republicans, but he makes an in-your-face move to them every chance he gets.
