HMM: Jeff Sessions shunned, slandered by longtime Senate Democrat collaborators.

Senate Democrats are poised to throw away 20 years of friendship and a bipartisan working relationship with Sen. Jeff Sessions to wreak political vengeance on him this week as they consider his nomination for attorney general.

Highlighting the deep partisan divide and the bad blood between Democratic lawmakers and President-elect Donald Trump, the same senators who have socialized and co-authored reams of legislation with Mr. Sessions are under pressure from liberal interest groups to air accusations that he is a racist, a sexist and a homophobe.

Somebody needs to keep a list of these bigots who were collaborating and socializing with a racist, sexist homophobe, and loudly shame them for those associations at election time. . . .

UPDATE: Cory Booker: “I feel blessed and honored to have partnered with Senator Sessions.”
