SCHUMER SLAMMED: Fellow Senators UNLOAD on Schumer Over RACE-BASED Voting

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.02.18

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer continued to take fire from his Congressional colleagues Thursday, with two sitting Senators slamming the top Democrat for his decision to vote against a Trump judicial nominee based on his skin color.

Senators Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott joined Rep. Trey Gowdy in publicly denouncing Schumer’s move to block a judicial nominee simply because of his skin color; saying he was “voting no” because Trump’s pick replaced two “scuttled” African-American candidates.

“This is political correctness run amok. Voting against a highly qualified nominee because of the color of his skin does nothing to bring our country and nation together. Frankly it is a massive step backward,” wrote Sen. Graham.

“He is not a racist, but this was an absolutely shameful reason to vote against a very qualified nominee like Marvin Quattlebaum,” he added. “I judge nominees on the content of their character, not the color of their skin.”

“Perhaps Senate Democrats should be more worried about the lack of diversity on their own staffs than attacking an extremely well-qualified judicial nominee from the great state of South Carolina,” added Sen. Tim Scott.
