Tennessee House of Representatives Speaker Cameron Sexton (R) is calling for the expulsion of three Democratic lawmakers after they disrupted house proceedings last Thursday.

During the session, Gloria Johnson, Justin Jones, and Justin Pearson took over the House floor and led a protest demanding gun control in response to last week’s tragic shooting.

The disruption brought the floor to a halt for 30-to-45 minutes.

Sexton, in an interview with Fox News, explained, “These three individuals stormed up to the well where you speak from without being recognized, did not display decorum, they disrupted the proceedings where we had to shut down, pulled out a megaphone and started to lead the balcony in protest.”

In a vote on Monday, the House affirmed to strip the three representatives of their committee assignments.

Since then, GOP representatives have pushed for a vote on expelling their disruptive counterparts.

Jones has responded to the call for his expulsion, “We’ll not be intimidated. THE PEOPLE are demanding we act to stop kids from being murdered in schools.”

The Vote to Expel

Sexton explained to Fox News’s Bill Hemmer, “I want to make sure everybody knows this has nothing to do about the protest outside the House chamber or the protests outside the Capitol.”

“This is about these three members’ actions on the House floor, how they shut us down, and how they led protests from the House chamber to those [people] in the balcony,” Sexton added.

Affirming the House’s actions, Sexton stated, “Their actions on the House floor rise to the level of expulsion. We cannot allow these types of things to take place in the people’s House.”

The vote for expulsion is scheduled to take place toward the end of Thursday’s session. Stay tuned for updates.

    Two militants and one fat slob house frau if you can’t act civil like and adult maybe you should just GTFO as we all are growing tired of the democrat mob mentality.

    I watched the video. I’m sorry, …… even in trying to give them some benefit of doubt, they were WAY out of line. No question. They decided to forgo at least any illusion of legislative decorum and thought they’d gain more ‘street cred’ in the process. Maybe when they grow the fcuk up, they can come back in the future.

    So, let’s say, because of their unprofessional conduct, they get everyone riled up and people die as a result of their behavior; would you think any one of them would be willing to accept responsibility for their actions? Of course not, they’re Democrats.

    They should be severely reprimanded, not because of their politically tainted viewpoints, but because of their choice to tarnish the decorum necessary to maintain the public trust.

    So according to democrats, it’s OK to murder kids in abortion clinics and hospitals, but not schools! I don’t get it!

  • JoeUSooner April 7, 2023, 11:45 am

    Jones is so full of manure that the whites of his eyes have turned brown! Despite his ridiculous attempts at idiotic justification, those specific actions CANNOT – in any way – “stop kids from being murdered in schools.” The three excuses for adults are engaging in political theater (nothing else).

    So many mannerless raised in our Godless, entertainment-soaked slob society.

    Focus on the gun, that’s the problem. Do not look at the cause of the violence, causes that can be laid at the feet of Democrats almost exclusively. They have been the moving force behind every law and regulation or restriction that has removed everything that made law abiding Americans who they were. From removing God from schools and making it criminal to mention Him and his connection to the Founders who put this country together, to denying that there is a cut and dried right and wrong, substituting it with a gray area, the destruction of the black nuclear family with LBJ’s ‘Great Society’ which is now expanding into the white race, and to the glorification of the perverse lifestyle they are forcing on everyone today. The pagan gods of old are taking charge now, the sacrifice of children, the glorification of wealth and sexuality, and the anything goes if it feels good existence has killed off every society, and it will kill off this one. But, be sure to blame the gun.

    Those 3 dims caused an insurrection. Throw them in jail!

      Wait. Don’t you know that rules & laws apply to You, but not to Them?
      Simply walk into the Capitol building on Jan. 6 and you get thrown in solitary; no lawyer; no visits; no bail; no hearing; later to be sentenced to prison terms. But, disrupt and take-over the state legislature — while in session! — and it’s branded a righteous protest “to save kids.” And the 3 were members of the TN House, which makes what they did far worse. Yes, expel them. (one look at them and it’s no surprise, is it?)
