Date: 
March 06, 2014

WASHINGTON, Mar 6 — "The fact is Debo Adegbile is an outstanding nominee to be the Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights -- with a strong track record of advancing justice and freedom. This hypocritical senate filibuster of his nomination is outrageous. The country deserves to have supremely qualified individuals such as Mr. Adegbile confirmed and we urge Senator Reid to bring his nomination before the U.S. Senate again."
