Protesters Read King’s Letter Outside McConnell’s House


Four hundred protesters gathered in front of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell‘s home in Kentucky Friday night.

The protesters read Coretta Scott King’s 1986 letter which Sen. McConnell barred Sen. Elizabeth Warren from reciting on the Senate floor in her attempt to derail Jeff Sessions’ confirmation as U.S. attorney general.

McConnell shut Warren down earlier in the week when she was in the middle of a lengthy speech, stating, “She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”

The warning McConnell referred to was that Warren was in violation of Rule 19 of the Senate. The rule states that senators are not permitted to “directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator.”

The protests lit up social media last night.
