I've had the privilege of meeting with Sen. Jeff Sessions a few times. He has been a beacon of honor in the Senate, a friendly and gracious man who nonetheless gives every ounce to fight for his convictions.
When the disastrous sentencing "reform" bill looked like it had momentum in Congress a year ago at about this time, Sen. Sessions, more than anyone else, stepped up to the plate. His strong, early leadership made people ask questions: Yes, we'll give them a "second chance," but what will they do with it? Do we need to think more about recidivism rates? Why do so many people think the criminal justice system is "broken" when, over more than 20 years, it has cut crime by half, saving millions of dollars and averting untold human misery?
Sen. Sessions has served in the Senate for almost 20 years. Before his election, he was both a United States Attorney in Alabama and Attorney General of that state.
Those seeking sobriety, probity and faithful conservative convictions could not want President-Elect Trump to appoint a finer man to become Attorney General.
