The Tennessee State Legislature has failed to expel the second of three Democrat lawmakers for helping lead in an insurrection last week inside the Tennessee State Capitol.
The three lawmakers who participated involved in the insurrection were Representatives Gloria Johnson, Justin Jones, and Justin Pearson.
The Tennessee House voted 65-30 to remove Johnson. 66 votes were needed for removal.
Immediately after the vote, massive applause broke out.

Rep Justin Jones was kicked out of the State legislature earlier by a 72-24 vote for helping lead the insurrection inside the Tennessee State Capitol.
This was the first time in the state’s history that a partisan expulsion happened.
Rep. Jones invoked the race card while pleading his case before the vote to expel him, calling the process “a lynch mob.”

He also accused a minority member of “putting a brown face on white supremacy.”
Rep. Jones responds: “there’s a lot to unpack there, Rep. Kumar. It’s sad what you just stated to me.”
“I said you put a brown face on white supremacy” Jones said.

Despite this, Tennessee Republicans did not have the guts to remove Johnson despite her being just as guilty as Jones.
What a disgrace.
Cristina Laila previously reported that deranged leftists invading the State Capitol. The protesters showed up demanding gun control after a transgender terrorist killed 6 Christians, including 3 children, at a private Christian school in Nashville.
The insurrectionists screamed, “No action, no peace!”

The Tennessee Democrats advertised the insurrection all week and encouraged protestors to storm the Capitol.
Tennessee Democrats advertised for the event in the days and hours leading up to it, encouraging people to attend and “raise your voice at the capitol to advocate for an end to gun violence and stronger gun laws in TN.”
