Exactly the same as corrupt southern cops and sheriffs who looked the other way and "never heard about blacks getting lynched"...

The Anonymous Jeff Sessions

339 Views
Message 3 of 3

In 2010, a grand alliance of conservatives and liberals organized around expanding the whistle-blowing rights of federal employees. The bipartisan appeal of this legislation made it about as invulnerable to attack as any bill in modern congressional history. Afterall, who could oppose assuring protections for courageous public servants who want to expose fraud, waste, and corruption mostly by corporate contractors on the government?


Well, for a start, companies such as Ratheon and Lockheed Martin that benefit from federal employees who facilitate corrupt practices.


Then there are members of the executive branch who look to these companies for future jobs.
They (lobbyists) worked behind the scenes to dilute provisions of the bill, but they could not seriously gut it. At the end of the session, Republicans and Democrats were figuratively ready to break open the champagn bottles.


Suddenly they learned that a secret hold had been put on the bill by two undisclosed senators, as the senate rules permitted. The bill died in the senate.


S. 372 would probably have received a 90 percent approval by the American people if it could have been put to vote.


Who were the senators who put on the last-ditch anonymous holds? Republican Senators Jon Kyl (R-**bleep**) and Jeff Sessions (R-AL). -- From the book "Unstoppable" (The Emerging Left Right Alliance) by Ralph Nader
