Opposition is growing against a radical Biden nominee.
According to The Washington Free Beacon:
Sen. Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) said he plans to block Rachael Rollins’s nomination in light of her refusal to prosecute crimes as district attorney for Suffolk County. Rollins has said she will not prosecute a number of crimes, including theft and drug dealing. The Washington Free Beacon has reported that Rollins worked closely with a criminal justice reform group that wants to defund police departments.
“Rachael Rollins won’t stand up for the victims of these crimes, and I will seek to stop her nomination,” said Cotton, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Rollins is also facing opposition from Katie Lawson, a Boston woman who filed a police complaint against the district attorney following a road rage incident late last year. Lawson said she is willing to testify under oath that Rollins used her police lights and threatened to issue Lawson a ticket during a minor traffic dispute on Christmas Eve. Rollins, who is biracial, has since suggested in media interviews that Lawson, who is white, is racist. Lawson vehemently denies the allegation, noting that her fiancé, who is black, was in the passenger seat of her vehicle during the incident with Rollins.
“She doesn’t deserve that position,” Lawson told the Free Beacon.
Biden nominated Rollins despite his insistence that the Democrats are tough on crime and do not want to defund any law enforcement.
