Jeff Sessions Hearings

Your DGB for today is to contact Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and ask that he oppose Jeff Sessions’ confirmation as Attorney General.

There are many reasons all of us should fear Sessions, but here are just a few standouts:

 

  1. He was denied confirmation to a federal judgeship in 1986 because of testimony that he used the n-word and joked about the kkk.

  2. He’s not just against illegal immigration, but also legal immigration.

  3. Apparently a required credential for each Trump cabinet appointee, he is, of course, a climate change denier.

 

Hearings are scheduled for January 10th and 11th. You’ll contact Senator Grassley using this form. Here’s a DGB suggested message:

 

Issue: Other

Subject: Jeff Sessions

Message: I’m asking that you oppose the confirmation of Senator Sessions to the position of Attorney General. His history of racism and regressive ideals disqualify him.

 

If you don’t want to give his office your contact information on the form, you can also deliver the message by phone at (202) 224-3744.

Ever heard the saying “if it was too racist for the ‘eighties, it’s still too racist”? Well, we just made it up for Jeff Sessions. Let’s make it a thing.
