WASHINGTON--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW) sent a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday expressing its support for Attorney General nominee Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.). The letter reads:
“Your committee will soon consider the nomination of Sen. Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III (R-Ala.) to become Attorney General of the United States. On behalf of the more than one million members and supporters of the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW), I strongly support Sen. Sessions’ confirmation to this post.
Sen. Sessions has long been an advocate for combatting waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in the federal government. Since he first took office in 1997, Sen. Sessions has achieved a lifetime rating of 97 percent with CCAGW. More impressively, he was a “Taxpayer Super Hero” in 2014, when he achieved a perfect 100 percent voting record. Sen. Sessions is a learned constitutional scholar, with a profound understanding of the proper role of the federal government and the limits by which it should be bound.
Sen. Sessions, a leader with great integrity, is the right choice to lead the U.S. Department of Justice, and I urge you to vote for his confirmation. All votes on Sen. Sessions’ nomination will be among those considered for CCAGW’s 2017 Congressional Ratings.”
The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste is the lobbying arm of Citizens Against Government Waste, the nation’s largest nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in government.
