BREAKING: Senate Votes to Block Nomination of Cop Killer Advocate Debo Adegbile
TownHall ^ | March 5, 2014 | Katie Pavlich

Posted on 03/05/2014 12:42:21 PM PST by don-o

The Senate has voted 52 to 47 to block the confirmation of Debo Adegbile, President Obama's nominee to head the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice. All Republicans and Democrats Coons, Heitkamp, Manchin, Pryor, Donnelly, Casey and Walsh voted against the nomination.

Adegbile came under heavy fire for his voluntary advocacy of convicted and unrepentant cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, who murdered Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981. Major law enforcement orgazations, inlcuding the National Fraternal Order of Police and the National Association of Police Organizations, were opposed to the nomination. Philadelphia Democratic Prosecutor Seth Williams was also against the nomination. Daniel Faulkner's widow, Maureen Faulkner, repeatedly begged Senators to block Adegbile's confirmation. News of Adegbile's nomination first came from former DOJ attorney and whistleblower J. Christian Adams.

Sounds like Harry Reid voted in favor and switched his vote late, thus reserving the right to bring the nomination up later. Figures. Guess they'll try and sneak it thru later when the attention dies down.

Senate rejects Obama appointment...

The MAN is an anti-colonialist. He will do whatever he can to right the so-called perceived “wrongs” of “Imperialist America” no matter what it takes. He hates the USA deep down for what he perceives as a suppressive empire.

All Republicans and Democrats Coons, Heitkamp, Manchin, Pryor, Donnelly, Casey and Walsh voted against the nomination.

Pryor and Walsh are up for re-election in states that Romney won, so no surprise there. Kind of surprised on the others since there really isn't pressure in their respective states to buck 0bama.

However, noticeably absent from also opposing this turd are other Libs running for re-election in states won by Romney ... Begich, Landrieu, HAGan, Johnson. Use this in November gOp.

Unfortunately, this vote tells USA more about the state of USG, with the large number of Senators who voted for this ridiculus confirmation.

The Democrats who voted for the guy probably figure the media will give it so little attention that it won’t be a factor in November.

I once saw some Freepers wearing T shirts saying FRY MUMIA.

Being from protected territory down south, I didn’t know why Mumia should be fried.

That would be in 40 days. Or, a few days less so the criminals in Congress can take a long weekend.

Reportedly, Adegbile's major civil rights hobby horse was going to be forcing businesses not to take felony records into account when making hiring decisions.
