During U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s confirmation hearings, a gang of liberal protesters loudly laughed and then violently objected to being removed from the premises. Now, this has come back to bite them in a big way.
Independent Journal Review reported that three activists representing the group Code Pink were convicted on Wednesday of various charges stemming from the incident at Sessions’ confirmation hearing. Of the three protesters, Desiree Fairooz has gotten the most attention, as she was the woman in the pink Statue of Liberty costume who was removed during the hearings. The other two activists appeared at Sessions’ hearing dressed as members of the Ku Klux Klan.
Fairooz was convicted on charges of disorderly or disruptive conduct and illegally “parading, demonstrating or picketing.” She reportedly laughed at a comment from Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) about Sessions having an “extensive record of treating all Americans equally under the law.” When Capitol police approached her, she resisted their attempts to make her leave.
“She did not get convicted for laughing,” one juror told Huffington Post. “It was her actions as she was being asked to leave.”
