The United States Senate on Wednesday narrowly confirmed Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins to be the next U.S. attorney for Massachusetts.... Vice President Kamala Harris was needed to break two votes that were tied 50-50 along party lines...Republicans all voted against Rollins' nomination.... “to declining to prosecute low-level offenses, Rachael Rollins has really shown that we can take a different approach to law enforcement," said Carol Rose, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)... Rollins has also sparred with Boston’s largest police union, which accused her last summer of inciting violence against law enforcement..
