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.

Huh, can you tell an election’s coming up?
Breaking News? Reported and posted this morning ...
Title is from source. But, good to know someone has Nanny Duty covered.
Now that is bipartisanship I can support.
“The Senate has voted 52 to 47...”
Still too close for comfort. :/
Yeah, I wonder why the democrats voted against him.
What’s disgusting is that the top guy actually nominated this SOB.
Buh bye Debo Adegbile...
How soon before he gets an appointment that doesn’t need congressional approval?
An ACLU turd nominated an ACLU turd...
Born Adebowale Patrick Akande Adegbile in New York City, Adegbile is the son of a Nigerian father and an Irish immigrant mother. He was raised by his single mother.
hmmm , do hear and echo ?
Even Democrats thought this stink-o enough to refuse.
Barack’s handlers need to be more careful!
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.
“Baracks handlers need to be more careful!”
Is Axelrod still his handler. He don’t give a shit for anything or anybody.
Senate, Scmenet, Barry don’t need no Senate approval... when will the Senate recess for Easter?
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.
