STOP CONFEDERATE RELIC JEFFERSON BEAUREGARD SESSIONS III FROM BEING APPOINTED ATTORNEY GENERAL

He's named after President Jefferson Davis of the Confederate States of America, and General Pierre Gustav Beauregard of the Confederate Army who fired the first shot in the US Civil War. They fought for their right to keep slaves.

Now a letter from Martin Luther King's widow has been published which was written 30 years ago to oppose Sessions' appointment as a judge:
“Anyone who has used the power of his office as United States Attorney to intimate and chill the free exercise of the ballot by citizens should not be elevated to our courts,” King wrote in the letter.

...“The irony of Mr. Sessions’ nomination is that, if confirmed, he will be given a life tenure for doing with a federal prosecution what the local sheriffs accomplished twenty years ago with clubs and cattle prods,” she wrote.

“Based on his record, I believe his confirmation would have a devastating effect on not only the judicial system in Alabama, but also on the progress we have made everywhere toward fulfilling my husband’s dream that he envisioned over twenty years ago,” the she added.
