Obama Nominee Slammed For Legal Aid To Convicted Cop Killer Abu-Jamal

Robert Moran at the Philadelphia Inquirer offers a piece on the controversal nomination of Debo Adegbile to the Department of Justice.

Longtime Seseme Street viewers may remember him as Debo, the little boy who chatted with Grover about the letter S in the 1970s.

But to the National Fraternal Order of Police, Debo Adegbile is a civil rights lawyer who "turned the justice system on its head" by providing legal assistence for Mumia Abu-Jamal.

The Police group is fighting Adegbile's nomination by President Obama to head voter-rights enforcement at the Department of Justice.
