Message I got from my senator re: Sessions appointment

I sent both of my senators a letter about opposing Sessions. This response seems like nothing more than an f-you. Guess who I will definitely not be supporting in 2018.


Dear Mr. Lord,

Thank you for contacting me regarding the confirmation of Senator Jeff Sessions as United States Attorney General. I appreciate you taking the time to write. It is an honor to serve you in the United States Senate and I hope you will continue to write with your thoughts and ideas on moving our country forward.

On February 8, 2017, with my support, the Senate voted to confirm Senator Jeff Sessions as Attorney General by a vote of 52-47. He was officially sworn in on February 9, 2017. Senator Sessions has served as a Senator for the state of Alabama since 1996 and previously served as Alabama Attorney General. Article II of the Constitution requires that the President obtain the advice and consent of the Senate on Presidential appointments.

Senator Sessions has had an impressive legal career and has a profound commitment to upholding the rule of law. I have had the opportunity to work with him in the Senate and witness firsthand his strong record of bipartisanship. I am confident in his ability to serve as the chief law enforcement officer in the country.

Again, thank you for contacting me, and do not hesitate to do so again when an issue is important to you.

Sincerely,

Cory Gardner
United States Senator

2. " . . . moving our country forward"?

by naming a barely reconstructed confederate to the Attorney General post, when they didn't even want him as a judge 30 years ago? That's moving forward backwards.

4. Standard Gardner boilerplate.

He is not known for welcoming conversation with constituents, unless those constituents are bringing large checks.

5. He hasn't even bothered to respond to my letters.

I've always kept it polite, but made the point that I hold Republicans accountable. So far, nada.

7. I sent my email

about two weeks ago. Maybe he is just getting around to it. I bet he got a lot of messages about Sessions.
