DEVELOPING: NAACP stages protest in Senator Jeff Sessions’ office

The NAACP has decided to target President-Elect Donald Trump’s nominee for Attorney General, Senator Jeff Session. Playing the racist card and complaining of his past record. Using unfounded charges and ignoring his record on civil rights, they want to deny Donald Trump his choice for AG. All Senator’s Sessions offices have been targeted.

As written by REUTERS and reported by the New York Post:

The NAACP staged a sit-in on Tuesday to protest the nomination of conservative U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions as the nation’s next Attorney General, vowing to occupy his Mobile, Alabama, office until he withdrew as a candidate or demonstrators were arrested.

Sessions, 70, has a record of controversial positions on race, immigration and criminal justice reform. Along with the sit-in, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) organized demonstrations at his offices statewide to draw attention to their concerns about his track record.

“Senator Sessions has callously ignored the reality of voter suppression but zealously prosecuted innocent civil rights leaders on trumped-up charges of voter fraud,” NAACP President and CEO Cornell William Brooks said in a news release. “As an opponent of the vote, he can’t be trusted to be the chief law enforcement officer for voting rights.”

Brooks posted a photo on Twitter of protesters in suits occupying the senator’s Mobile office……..
