Rove: 'Appalling' Dems Holding Up Sessions' Vote for 'Sheer Political Joy'
Former Bush advisor Karl Rove slammed Senate Democrats for holding up the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) for attorney general, citing allegations of racism.
If you were a Republican in Alabama in the 1960s, you were a racial moderate, Rove said on "The O'Reilly Factor," pointing to the southern segregationist and Democratic faction supporting then-Gov. George Wallace Jr. (D-Ala.).
"Sessions is a good and decent man," Rove said.
The Selma native desegregated Yellowhammer State schools and prosecuted high-level Ku Klux Klan leaders, he said.
Democrats are delaying Sessions' vote for the optional week-long wait for "sheer political joy".
