Steve Bannon has a dangerous vision of the world. His unprecedented appointment to the NSC politicizes national security and elevates his twisted worldview. I’m organizing my colleagues in Congress to fight back against this reprehensible appointment. Link
Senator Jeff Sessions' record of bigotry & divisiveness should disqualify him from serving as Attorney General. This nomination should alarm anyone committed to the cause of justice.
In the wake of yesterday's tragedy, I wanted to share this personal story. When my mother went into labor with me, in segregated El Paso, the hospital refused her admission because of the color of her skin. She nearly died as a result. By the time the callous people at the hospital agreed to admit her, they were forced to do an emergency forceps delivery. I bear those forceps scars — the scars of segregation — above my eye to this day. The cowards who marched under the banner of white supremacy in Charlottesville do not scare me — they only strengthen my resolve to banish racism and bigotry from this nation for good.
