Wicker to Vote ‘No’ on Lynch Nomination for Attorney General

March 17, 2015

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., today announced that he will vote against Loretta Lynch’s nomination to be U.S. Attorney General.

“I cannot support an Attorney General nominee who is willing to engage in, or permit, discretionary enforcement of the law,” Wicker said. “I believe the White House’s politicization of the Justice Department under Eric Holder has eroded the integrity of the agency. Voting in favor of this nomination would be tantamount to an endorsement of the Administration’s strategy to pick and choose which laws to enforce based on political calculations.”
