Senate to Vote on Mumia Advocate For Top DOJ Civil Rights Position Wednesday

The Senate is scheduled to vote on the nomination of Debo Adegbile at 11:45 am Wednesday. Adegbile has been tapped by President Obama to head the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice.


Late yesterday afternoon, Republican Senator Ted Cruz took to the Senate floor to announce his opposition to Adegbile's nomination as a result of his voluntary efforts to advocate for convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, who murdered Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner ins 1981. Cruz urged his fellow Republicans and Democrats to stand with law enforcement agents around the country in opposition to the nomination. Pennsylvania Democrat Bob Casey has announced he will vote no. The Fraternal Order of Police, along with five other major law enforcement groups, are opposed to the nomination.

Last night on Hannity, Pennsylvania Republican Pat Toomey stressed that opposition to Adegbile's nomination should be bipartisan and that this is a "bad choice."
