Black Woman Protest Republican Stalling Loretta Lynch Confirmation Vote

The National Action Network, founded by Reverend Al Sharpton, along with female civil rights leaders are staging a hunger strike until Loretta Lynch’s confirmation is pushed through.

The news comes after Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn said that the Senate would be focusing first on legislation concerning Iran before it turned to a sex trafficking bill that Republicans have long tied up with Lynch’s confirmation process. The sex trafficking bill has nothing to do with Lynch, but Republicans say they will not bring up the confirmation for a vote until it is passed.

“Iran is a special case, so I’m not suggesting we hold up Iran for this,” Cornyn told reporters. “But I am suggesting we come back to it after Iran, particularly if [Democrats] want to release Eric Holder so they can let him make a lot of money in the private sector.”
