The Truth About Jeff Sessions’ Law Career

Since the electoral defeat of Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore at the hands of Democrat Doug Jones, the prevailing narrative has been that the deed-red southern state has changed virtually overnight into a stronghold for social justice…or something.

Moving past the obvious analysis — that Moore was a deeply flawed candidate even before he was accused of inappropriate sexual behavior with underage women — the point here about Jeff Sessions losing some kind of racist legacy is horribly untrue.

Before serving in the U.S. Senate, Sessions was a bit of a maverick in southern politics. For example, as an attorney, Sessions pushed for the desegregation of schools — a hugely controversial move in the American South.

Also included in his law career was the successful prosecution of a Klansman, who received the death penalty for his actions. Hardly the actions of a racist, don’t you think?
