Sen. Toomey to vote against Loretta Lynch confirmation

Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey, a first-term Republican, has announced he will vote against the nomination of Loretta Lynch, President Obama's controversial pick for attorney general to replace the even more controversial Eric Holder.

The Senate is expected to vote on Lynch on Thursday.

During testimony before the Senate and in public comments, Lynch has displayed an unwillingness to show independence on most of Obama's controversial issues such as immigration, domestic spying, gun control and the need to investigate a variety of scandals that have plagued the Obama administration.

Just like Holder, Lynch will be an enabler of Obama's unconstitutional actions.

Pennsylvania's other US senator, Bob Casey Jr., a Democrat who rubber-stamps the Obama agenda, is expected to toe the party line and vote to confirm Lynch.

Toomey sent a fund-raising appeal out today that included the following message about Lynch:
"Tomorrow, I will vote to oppose Loretta Lynch's confirmation as Attorney General of the United States. Due to concerns about whether she would uphold the rule of law and defend the Constitution in the face of President Obama's executive actions, she will not be receiving my support.
The United States Senate must not confirm Loretta Lynch as our next Attorney General."
