The NAACP has vigorously opposed Donald Trump’s nominee for attorney general, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.). Seven years earlier, however, the civil rights organization awarded Sessions its “Governmental Award of Excellence” for his work in the Senate.

The award was discovered when an aide was cleaning out Sessions’ office in Mobile, Ala. to prepare for his transition to the Justice Department, Politico reported Tuesday.

Sessions revealed that he received the award in a questionnaire supplement sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a member of the Judiciary Committee who supports Sessions for attorney general, noted the NAACP’s change in attitude on Twitter.

The NAACP now opposes Sen. Jeff Sessions…..though in 2009 they honored him with their Governmental Award of Excellence.
