Several other Democrats in tough races voted in favor of the nomination. Sens. Kay Hagan (N.C.), Mary Landrieu (La.) and Mark Begich (Alaska) are all seen as vulnerable in this year's midterms, but all three voted in favor of moving the nomination forward.I know that attorneys have to represent their clients, but Adegbile went beyond representation to activist on Mumia's behalf, which puts his nomination beyond the pale. I had written Senator Landrieu on Monday morning and told her to vote against the confirmation. Senator Landrieu chose to ignore my constituent interest. That's her choice, and voting for her is my choice.
Senator Landrieu votes in favor of race-baiting cop killers. That a damn shame and another reason to vote against her in October.
