In the face of Republican opposition, Kamala Harris, the nation's first Black and woman vice president, cast the historic tie-breaking vote in the U.S. Senate to confirm Rachael Rollins as the first-ever Black woman to be U.S. attorney for Massachusetts.

Rachael Rollins was given the latest in a series of setbacks in her nomination process to be the first Black woman U.S. Attorney in Massachusetts after Senate Republicans disingenuously described Boston's DA as being "pro-crime."

The Boston Police Patrolman Association's recent tweets targeting mayoral candidate Andrea Campbell point to a lengthy history of attacks aimed at Black women city officials.
