At a Senate hearing Wednesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham confronted the president of the NAACP with accusations that the civil rights group has an anti-Republican bias.
NAACP President Cornell Brooks was testifying in opposition to President-elect Donald Trump’s nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions for attorney general when Mr. Graham challenged his and the organization’s political motives.
Earlier, Mr. Brooks said that Mr. Sessions’ record “evinces a clear disregard, disrespect, and even disdain for the civil and human rights of racial and ethnic minorities, women, the disabled, and others who suffer from discrimination in this country.”
“Based on his record and his statements, the NAACP strongly believes that confirmation of Senator Sessions as attorney general would be bad for America and could exacerbate already deepening racial divisions in this country,” he told the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Mr. Graham, South Carolina Republican, later asked what was Mr. Sessions’ score on the NAACP legislative score card.
“The senator has received a low grade, a failing grade, for years on end,” Mr. Brooks said.
Mr. Graham notes that every Republican on the committee received a failing grade in the teens or 20s, while nearly every Democrat on the committee received a score of 100 percent.
So, in the black eyes of the NAACP, only Democrats can occupy the White House and appointees? Bad news, Mr. Brooks, as your savior said on several occasions, "We Won, You Lost" and "Elections Have Consequences"
