Tom Reads from Coretta Scott King Letter in Opposing Jeff Sessions for Attorney General
US Senator Tom Udall spoke on the Senate floor in opposition to the nomination of Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) to serve as Attorney General of the United States. In his speech, Udall entered into the Senate record and read from a 1986 letter written by Coretta Scott King, widow of civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr., opposing Sessions’ nomination for a federal judgeship. On Wednesday, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) read from the same letter and attempted to enter it into the record, but Senate Republicans voted to formally silence her.
