Congressional Gold Medal
“as a U.S. Attorney he filed several cases to desegregate schools in Alabama.
he also prosecuted Klansman Henry Francis Hays, son of Alabama Klan leader Bennie Hays, for abducting and killing Michael Donald, a black teenager selected at random. Sessions insisted on the death penalty for Hays. When he was later elected the state Attorney General, Sessions followed through and made sure Hays was executed.
The successful prosecution of Hays also led to a $7 million civil judgment against the Klan, effectively breaking the back of the KKK in Alabama.
Thanks to Sessions, Henry Francis Hays was the first white man executed in Alabama for murdering a black person since 1913. Sessions spent the better part of two decades going after the Klan in Alabama, and that should be kept in mind when you assess the decades-old charges that he is racist.”
““Sen. Sessions’ strong civil rights record includes a host of desegregation lawsuits he filed in Alabama while he was U.S. attorney, voting in favor of the 30-year extension of the Civil Rights Act, voting to confirm Attorney General Eric Holder, spearheading the effort to award the Congressional Gold Medal to Rosa Parks,”
persecuted KKK , made sure they got death penalty
United States v. Conecuh County, et al.
Sessions described this 1983 case was the “first voter suppression lawsuit ever instituted by the United States Department of Justice. I am honored to have been a part of it.”
This case was filed while Sessions was U.S. attorney, and his name is on the 1983 lawsuit. The lawsuit charged that black voters in Conecuh County, Ala., were harassed and intimidated at the polls. The lawsuit was filed against the county, county election officials and Democratic and Republican county executive committees, according to the Associated Press.
John Tanner, former Justice Department attorney and main attorney on the case, told The Atlantic that Sessions was “interested” and “supportive” of the Civil Rights Division attorneys who did most of the work on the case.
“We conduct our own investigations, we worked out of the office, the U.S. attorney’s offices sometimes send someone in to introduce the D.C. attorney to the court as a courtesy,” Tanner told The Atlantic. “On that one, most of the fact gathering was from having federal observers present, and that is an operation that’s run out of D.C.”

Corey Booker and Jeff Sessions introduced legislation TOGETHER that awarded the Congressional Gold Medal to the men and women who walked to Selma 50 years ago, so I know Booker testified against him for political purposes. Maybe he thinks he can run for president or something… but it’s purely political. Sessions made sure that a KKK member who murdered a black man got the DEATH PENALTY. The false testimony against him accusing him of racism will not stand simply because it IS false and has been debunked… I don’t always agree with everything he does but he’s a decent, fair man. If you call this young man racist names because he is testifying for Sessions then maybe you should look in the mirror when you shout “racist”. It’s just ridiculous and illogical. That the MSM is perpetuating this false narrative is slanderous and defamation.
introduced – Drug Sentencing Reform Act of 2001 – reduced mandatory minimums for cocaine offences, reduced penalties on those convicted of minor roles vs major/violent ones (this reduced petty drug charges which increased because of Clinton legislation)
