Republican State Attorney General Jefferson Sessions wants to go to Washington to replace retiring Senator Howell Heflin. Although Sessions got the most votes, 38 %, he didn’t win a majority in yesterday’s primary, so a run-off is scheduled for later this month. Jeff Sessions is the only nominee for a federal judgeship in recent years whose nomination was rejection. He is currently heading up two investigations in Alabama: an investigation of the bombing of black churches and an investigation into alleged voter fraud in the African American community. Joining us now is Pacifica’s Dennis Bernstein who recently traveled to Alabama as part of his work on a documentary for Democracy Now on the rash of church fires that’s terrorizing the African American community in the South. Tape of Interview with Sheriff Prince Arnold.
