WASHINGTON, DC — The NAACP released the following statement in response to the Senate filibuster of Debo Adegbile to serve as the Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights.

From Lorraine C. Miller, NAACP Interim President and CEO:

“It is outrageous that the United States Senate failed to confirm Debo Adegbile as Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights.  The President offered the best and most qualified candidate for this position.  Mr. Adegbile’s record and accomplishments as a leading civil rights attorney are unparalleled.  He is an unwavering defender of the Constitution of the United States and has worked tirelessly to ensure that the rights it confers on its citizens are applied equally to all.

The Senate failed to see through a shameful disinformation campaign that intentionally tries to hold Mr. Adegbile responsible for a terrible crime committed by a defendant when Mr. Adegbile was only 8 years old.  To allow this narrow, misguided agenda to punish Mr. Adegbile for upholding the core tenets of the Constitution is unfathomable and does a disservice to our nation.”
