Reader sends along "action" memo on Obama's A.G. nominee
President Obama's nominee for Attorney General, Eric Holder, is eminently qualified - he served as Deputy Attorney General in the Clinton Administration, and was also the first African-American U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia.
But Senator John Cornyn of Texas has a problem with Holder - the fact that maybe Holder might consider prosecuting Bush Administration officials who illegally tortured Americans and foreigners. Sen. Cornyn has already succeeded in delaying the vote on Holder's confirmation for a week, and he's threatened to bury the vote permanently by putting a hold on it.
I just took action to tell Senator Cornyn not to hinder President Obama's agenda - and not to protect torturers. I hope you will, too.
