California senator removed from floor after criticizing late lawmaker Tom Hayden - Sacramento Bee

Monday, February 27, 2017

On Tuesday, you had an opportunity to honor Sen. Tom Hayden. With all due respect, I would like to offer this historical perspective ...”Presiding Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, interrupted Nguyen and gave the floor to Sen. Bill Monning, D-Carmel, who said Nguyen was out of order because she did not raise her objections during the Hayden tribute ceremony two days before. Nguyen continued to speak for several minutes, even as Lara repeatedly asked her to take a seat and then eventually ordered the sergeants to remove her.“Sergeants, please remove Sen. Nguyen from the chamber,” Lara said. “Have her removed immediately. Sergeants, please remove Sen. Nguyen, she is out of order.”I am deeply disturbed.Sen. Jean Fuller, R-BakersfieldThe decision infuriated Republicans, including Fuller, who complained that Nguyen had been disrespected.“Just last year we let one of our guests speak on the floor, a movie star that we had no protocol for doing so, and yet we’re shutting a member down,” she said. “I am deeply disturbed.”One Democrat, Sen. Tony Mendoza of Artesia, defended Nguyen’s right to “say what she needed to say and express her feelings and thoughts about what she feels strongly about, especially as it relates to her district and community.” He said someone should have given her direction on the appropriate time to speak, “but to forcibly remove her, I think that’s too extreme.”The end of the session shortly after did not quell the furor. Sen. Mike Morrell, R-Rancho Cucamonga, loudly complained that de León had cut the discussion short. Senate staff and colleagues moved in to calm him down.Republican senators later took to social media to denounce the incident, comparing it to a controversy in Congress earlier this month when Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., was prevented from reading a letter written by Coretta Scott King during a debate over the confirmation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.“This sad episode is a textbook case of men trying to silence a woman whose views they did not like,” Sen. Pat Bates, R-Laguna Niguel, said in a statement. She added the “#ShePersisted” hashtag that emerged after the Warren event.Nguyen said she chose not to speak at the Hayden memorial on Tuesday out of respect to his family in attendance. She said she alerted de León’s office of her intention to make a “point of personal privilege” on Thursday and was informed by email Wednesday night that she could not do so.The email, from de León chief of staff Dan Reeves, suggested that Nguyen post a statement on Facebook or her website instead. Nguyen said she was told that her comments would be “highly inappropriate” and that she should respect the right of others to have a different perspective on Hayden.Feeling that she had no other option to make herself heard, Nguyen said she “put up my mike.”I hope it’s a learning experience.Dan Reeves, chief of staff to Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de LeónReeves said his email was merely referring to Nguyen’s request to make a point of personal privilege, which would not be allowed because Hayden had never impugned her. He said he informed Nguyen on Thursday morning that she could instead speak on condition of the file at the end of session, when members are free to raise any subject.“She proceeded nonetheless,” Reeves said shortly afte
