Yep, add that to the long list of reasons Toomey needs the boot in 2016. Luckily, decorated Admiral and former Congressman Joe Sestak (D. PA) is already getting ready for a comeback bid. If you would like to donate to his campaign, you can do so here:Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) argued that the defeat of President Barack Obama's pick to lead a key division of the Justice Department was not about racism but rather because Debo Adegbile participated in an "anti-American campaign" to defend Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal.
"This was always about the principle that no one should be able to make a mockery of our criminal justice system, fan the flames of racial strife in America, join a dishonest, international anti-American campaign, along the way drag the family of a fallen police officer with three decades of health and then be burned by most of the Justice Department," Toomey said during a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday.
Toomey's comments on Adegbile on Thursday at the Conservative Political Action Conference, came a day after a number of Democrats joined every Republican senator to block his nomination to serve as the Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department. - TPM, 3/6/14
