Expulsion vote thrusts Tennessee politics onto the national stage, could set precedent

Oh, I see. They’re being expelled for not protesting in the right way. The picture makes it all clear.

«“What they did was try to hold up the people’s business on the House floor instead of doing it the way that they should have done it, which they have the means to do,” Sexton said. “They actually thought that they would be arrested. And so they decided that them being a victim was more important than focusing on the six victims from Monday. And that’s appalling.”

House leadership has never overridden a member’s election for simply violating House rules.»


Update: guess who didn’t get expelled?
