Sen. Pat Toomey Praises The Smear Campaign Against Debo Adegbile
As Miranda noted yesterday, the Right had launched a full-scale smear campaign Debo Adegbile, who had been nominated by President Obama to serve as head the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, over the fact that Adegbile was in charge of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund when it helped provide legal representation to Mumia Abu-Jamal.
That campaign against him succeeded as yesterday the Senate failed to confirm his nomination and Sen. Pat Toomey could not be more proud, making the case against Adegbile the focus on the remarks he delivered a CPAC today, asserting that the effort to defend Abu-Jamal was part of an "international campaign to lionize a cop-killer" that "was based on hatred for America, contempt for our criminal justice system, and the goal was to indict America as a hopelessly racist country."
And Toomey was not going to accept that, which is why he launched the fight against Adegbile's nomination because "nobody should be able to make a mockery criminal justice system, fan the flames of racial strife in America, join a dishonest international anti-American campaign, along the way drag the family of a fallen police officer through three decades of hell and then be confirmed to a high post in the Justice Department":
