ALERT: Liberal Lawmaker Has Been EXPELLED From The Senate!

Politics

For the first time in history, the Senate expelled a member, voting Wednesday to oust Tennessee Democratic Sen. Katrina Robinson for violating ethics rules after being convicted of two felony fraud counts totaling less than $3,500.

Just last week, a Senate Ethics Committee determined Robinson violated the body’s code of ethics and recommended she be removed from her position.

In a Senate chamber hearing, senators voted 27-5, along party lines, to expel Robinson despite her pleas to wait until after a March 3 sentencing hearing.

At one point in making her case, Robinson called the hearing a “procedural lynching,” drawing cries of support from the gallery where Black lawmakers and friends stood.

At this time, Robinson awaits sentencing for two federal fraud charges related to the mismanagement of federal funds in connection to her leadership at the Healthcare Institute.

The case involving Robinson now only involves a $3,400 reporting error.

Robinson, who is Black, argued before the 27-5 vote to expel her that she had been unfairly judged by the white-majority chamber. She called it a “procedural lynching,” prompting cheers of support that the Republican speaker gaveled down. Some of her supporters in the gallery were in tears and others stood in solidarity.

“I feel beat up standing in front of you guys,” Robinson said. “And really I didn’t prepare any words because there are no words for what this is.”

Senators heard the basis for Robinson’s expulsion, a conviction on two counts of wire fraud in connection with expenses federal prosecutors said she illegally took from her nursing school, The HealthCare Institute in Memphis. The U.S. Attorney’s Office charged Robinson with 48 counts of embezzling more than $600,000 from her school between 2016 and 2018. She received federal grants of $2.2 million, which was to be used to run the school, but federal prosecutors claim she spent the money illegally, using it for a lavish lifestyle, including spending it on her wedding and then to pay for a divorce.

Robinson’s attorneys urged the Senate to wait until after her March 3 sentencing, saying they could be filing motions to have the two convictions dropped. If the judge hearing the case refuses and confirms the felony convictions, the senator would resign, her attorneys said.

Her counsel also argued that the counts against her are questionable and still could be dismissed.

“The harm is significant,” said Robinson’s attorney, Janika White.

By the time Robinson’s trial ended in September 2021, she was convicted on only four counts, two-wire fraud charges, and two counts of misleading financial reports, the latter of which U.S. District Court Judge Sheryl Lipman dropped. The judge, however, denied her request for a retrial and refused to drop the two remaining charges, and set sentencing for March 3.

That decision was set in motion action by the Republican-controlled Senate to expel her for violating its ethics code. Convicted felons are not allowed to serve in the Senate.

  1. Oh yes, but she is saying they are expelling her because of her race and not because she is a convicted criminal. That race card has been beaten to death.

  2. I missed reading in which state this is occuring. The article title should have made that plain.

  3. Race card just doe OT work like it used to! Hope she gets all the justice coming to her. Should always be “comitt the crime do the time”. Horrific how lawless our society has become under the Leftists/Communists/Socialist democratic party. Now more than ever we need Trump back in the White House as POTUS (he is but not officiailly announced).

  4. The sad part is, she will not get any jail time and she still got away with 600K. Or did I miss
    something?

  5. Down dare day lets um do what day won`t. She is a darkie so it`s gots to be racist.

  6. She went directly to the ‘race card’ B.S. . Will it EVER END.? VICTIM MENTALLY. SHE is responsible for her actions. No one else is.

  7. STATE Senator. I shouldn’t have had to say that, but the article was so poorly written that it was necessary. Shame on you. Let that be a lesson to you. Next time do better.

  8. If they start expelling Senators, as well as Representatives, for $3,000 crimes, both chambers will be left empty.

  9. It’s not about race. She didn’t prepare any remarks because there’s no excuse for stealing money! She was convicted of a felony. Convicted felons cannot serve in the senate, no matter what race or party they are.

  10. Looks like a total of $2.8M… since she got grants for $2.2M, and then embezzled another $600K… who knows if there really is a ‘school’? Must have been a dang fancy wedding, wonder what the divorce cost?

  11. Now, let’s expel ALL of the liberal Swamp Crocodiles, disguised as both Donkeys & Elephants!

    Have you ever wondered just HOW America has ended up with the caliber of civil “leaders” she has today?

    Could it have something to do with Article 6’s Christian test ban by which mandatory biblical qualifications were likewise eliminated? Once adopted, it was inevitable that America would be ruled by nothing but nincompoops, scoundrels, incompetents, immoral reprobates, and outright criminals. Sound familiar?

    Take nincompoops, for example. Exodus 18:21’s qualifications begin with the fear of Yahweh. Kings David and Solomon point out the fear of Yahweh is the beginning of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. Thus, without the fear of Yahweh, you end up with, at best, nincompoops as your alleged leaders.

    The best you can ever get from the Constitutional Republic’s unbiblical election system is the lessers of two evils. Sometimes, the worst of the worst. And always, the evil of two lessers.

    For more regarding Article 6’s Christian test ban, see Chapter 9 “Article 6: The Supreme Law of the Land” of free online book “Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective” at Bible versus Constitution dot org.

  12. Article VI of the US constitution says nothing about, for or against any religious tests. Article VI simply outlines a defendants rights. Nothing more.

  13. WE HAD A BLACK WOMEN HERE IN NEW MEXICO GOVERNMENT DO THE SAME DARN THING FROM THE SCHOOL’S FEEDING PROGRAM.!!!!!!

  14. Let me get this straight. You are a 2count convicted felon. State of Tennessee Senate Committee says you cannot serve in the legislature if you are a felon, an ethics violation. Sen. Katrina Robinson calls this a procedural lynching. Sorry, but I don’t see the problem with this as you violated the law and were convicted, a felon. House ethics say convicted felons cannot hold that office. The Senate took a vote and applied that ethics clause, rule of law applied. Please leave quietly Katrina Robinson

  15. The story stated that the Republican Speaker gaveled her down. There is no Republican Speaker in the US House. Yet

  16. Persecution of Blacks by Whites made her do this misdeed? Bullet proof the Black criminals, shield them from evil White menace. Hey Joe, this is who we are?

  17. Race had nothing to do with it. She was convicted and awaiting sentencing. ” A CONVICTED FELON CAN NOT SERVE IN THE SENATE”

  18. The rule is straightforward and she VIOLATED it. Sorry there is no part that says if they change the charge after conviction that it does not count.The rule says convicted of a felony you get booted she was so she should go. They should also make it so she can’t run for any other elected office for life.

  19. Ok, regardless of whether or not she is guilty, can we PLEASE stop using the woke spelling of “Black”? I am firmly convinced that Dr. Martin Luther King would NEVER have justified always spelling black with a capital “B” while spelling white with a lower case “w”. What ever happened to equality?

  20. She was charged with 48 counts of embezzling more than $600,000 from a federal grant to her nursing school over a 2 year period.
    This info is all in the article above. Read the whole thing.

  21. There are only two expressions that liberals know–Racist and white privilege! I am sick of hearing it. If she did wrong, she gets what she deserves.

  22. She broke the law and committed a crime. But because she’s being punished for committing the crime, it’s racist. Race had nothing to do with the punishment, only her activity and involvement in the crime. Does she take the stance that a black person can break the law and getting punished for breaking the law is racist? So does this person belong as a representative of Americans, or only black Americans?

  23. Its about time blacks start paying for there crimes!! Stop your damn whining all the time about racist BS. If you don’t like it here go the hell some where else. Its alright for you to call everybody any thing you want but when some one you a name you people cry like a bunch of babies so shut your damn mouth.
