White House Yanks Debo Adegbile Nomination

The Debo Adegbile story has ended.  The White House yesterday pulled his nomination to head the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division after it was defeated on a procedural vote in the Senate in March.  PJ Media was the first to report on the radical background of Adegbile within hours of the nomination being made.  After Adegbile was defeated in a procedural vote, left wing groups held out hope that another vote would be scheduled in the Senate and Democrats who opposed Adegbile would suddenly support him.  That didn’t happen.

Now there  is little chance that a nominee to head the Civil Rights Division can be confirmed before the November elections.  If Republicans take control of the Senate, don’t expect the White House to nominate someone with Adegbile’s radical background.
