Read the letter Deval Patrick wrote opposing Trump attorney general nominee Jeff Sessions

In a letter Tuesday to the Senate Judiciary Committee, former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick recalled a 1985 voting rights case in which he defended three Alabama residents against what he called “an act of extraordinary quasi-judicial activisim” by Sessions, then the U.S. attorney for the state’s southern district. Patrick’s team won the case, but, in his letter Tuesday, Patrick called it “a cautionary tale.” [SOURCE]
