NAACP CALL TO ACTION: FINAL SENATE VOTE ON U.S. ATTORNEY GENERAL NOMINEE LORETTA LYNCH EXPECTED THE WEEK OF MARCH 16
On Feb. 26, 2015, the U. S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary voted, by a margin of 12 yeas to 8 nays, to send the nomination of Loretta Lynch to serve as the next U.S. Attorney General to the floor of the full U.S. Senate for a final vote.
A final vote by the full U.S. Senate is expected the week of March 16.
In her current position as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, Ms. Lynch has earned praise for her work fighting sex trafficking, police brutality, terrorism, and religious and racial hate crimes. In fact, throughout her 30-year career, she has distinguished herself as a tough, fair, and independent lawyer who has twice headed one of the most prominent U.S. Attorney’s offices in the country. She also traveled to Geneva, Switzerland, in 2014 as part of the U.S. official delegation before the United Nations Covenant to Eradicate Racial Discrimination. At that time, her mastery of the issues as well as her ardent support and understandings of the challenges of the U.S.'s justice system was impressive.
Every US Senator is strongly encouraged to support this well-qualified nominee and to vote in favor of her confirmation when it comes before them on the floor of the US Senate.
