Don’t miss Brian Beutler’s interview with one of the civil rights workers who Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) tried to railroad on bogus voter fraud charges for trying to register voters:

“We were trying to get the right to vote,” [Spencer] Hogue said. “He tried to persecute us.”

Sessions’ behavior was egregious enough that a Republican-controlled Senate failed to confirm him as a federal district court judge. But today’s rather different Senate Republican caucus wants Sessions to be their top guy on the Judiciary Committee.
