Barbara Lee Blasts DiFi on Southwick

441149505_6d948def44_o.jpgBarbara Lee on the Southwick confirmation:

“Let me also say that as a Californian and as an African American, I am incredibly disappointed that a Senator from my home state, Senator Feinstein, would not only vote for confirmation but would be the one to effectively bring this nomination to the floor by voting with the Republicans to approve the nomination in committee. It is particularly disappointing given California’s diversity and our history of leadership on issues of civil rights, women’s rights, worker’s rights and the basic commitment to equality before the law, all areas where Judge Southwick’s record is, quite frankly, sadly lacking.”

Nice job, DiFi.  The words “in the tank” come to mind.
