The award, which has been given out each year since 1990, “recognizes a public official (or officials) at the federal, state or local level whose actions demonstrate the qualities of politically courageous leadership in the spirit of Profiles in Courage, President Kennedy’s 1957 Pulitzer prize-winning book, which recounts the stories of eight U.S. Senators who risked their careers by embracing unpopular positions for the greater good.”

Essentially, the award celebrates officials who choose the public interest over partisanship, “who do what is right, rather than what is expedient.”

The best part about the Yates  issue is that Jeff Sessions asked her point blank two years ago if she was willing to go against the President (Obama) if she didn't agree  with him.  She gave a terrific answer and said yes and then she did exactly what Sessions and Republicans wanted her to do and it  got her fired.
