– Yeah, I wonder sometimes what it would’ve been like if I had made other choices, but… you want to know what I really regret? – That last shot of Sambuca? – Forget it. You’re the last person I should be telling this to.
This is a letter from Coretta Scott King, wife of MLK Jr., written 30 years ago, urging the Senate to reject the nomination of Jeff Sessions to a federal judgeship. Yesterday, Sen. Warren tried to read this same letter during the debate on whether to make Sessions the next Attorney General and the Senate Republicans voted to rebuke Warren and formally silence her.
Sessions’ vote is tonight. His nomination is nothing short of terrifying and we must stand behind those who are working to block him. Warren, and Mrs. King, will not be silenced.
