ATTORNEY GENERAL/CABINET/JEFF SESSIONS: "Mr. Sessions supported a constitutional amendment that would have banned burning the American flag. [In Senator Sessions stated in his 6-27-06 Senate Speech] 'Some would say: Well, you want to limit free speech when you want to stop burning the flag. Now, it is true that the Supreme Court, by a 5-to-4 majority, held that the act of burning a flag is free speech. Well, I don’t agree.' "
