Coretta Scott King Must Be Heard

When Jeff Sessions appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee the last time. Coretta Scott King provided a letter to be entered into the record. If you’ve ever watched a Senate hearing you often see Senators introduce evidence into the record whether it be letters, or newspaper articles or statements from interested parties. Jeff Sessions was denied an appointment to be a Federal Judge last time because he was even too racist for those times to be given a lifetime appointment. The letter that was introduced at that time. Disappeared from the record as Chairman Strom Thurmond (Session’s mentor) made it disappear.

Now that Senator Jeff Sessions is up for Attorney General. Senator Elizabeth Warren tried to read aloud the same letter from Mrs. King which technically was already in the record although the copy of the letter had vanished. Mitch McConnell objected to the reading based on the idea that Senator Warren was impugning a fellow Senator and she was made to stop talking and take her seat.

Here is the letter that the Senate apparently doesn’t want America to know about Not now, not 30 years ago. Please share this letter throughout your networks so that America can know what Mitch McConnell and Strom Thurmond rather you didn’t.
