Cory Booker Rand Paul Sensitive Controversy Over Anti-Leaching Act Aimed at Amendment

As soon as work began on the memorial for George Floyd in Minnesota, Paul, who has been carrying the popular bipartisan law in favor of lynching in federal crime, came to the floor of the Washington Senate to amend anti-leaching legislation and later passed it. . He argued that the bill was too broad and that his amendment would “impose criminal penalties only for launching, not for other offenses.” The GOP senator then sought unanimous consent to pass the bill with that amendment. However, both Harris and Booker spoke out against the attempt and Booker objected.

“Senator Paul is now trying to weaken a bill that has already been passed – for no reason, for no reason,” Harris said.

In sensitive remarks, Booker said that “he is so raw today”, “All day we are doing this now when God, if this bill is passed today, what will it mean for America that this body and that body finally agree.”

“It said something to racial pain and loss of generation,” Booker said. “I don’t need a colleague, a senator from Kentucky, to talk about a leaching of this country,” he continued.

Pointing to Paul, Booker said that he did not question Paul’s heart, but strongly disagreed with his actions.

“My colleague Rand Paul Hall was the first to shake hands with me,” Benner said. “He’s my friend … but I’m too raw today.”

“I’m not trying to amend this law because I take leaching lightly, but I take it seriously and don’t do this law,” Paul said. “Our nation’s history of ethnic terrorism is more important than ours.”

Shortly afterwards, Alaska GOP Sen Lisa Markowski came to the floor for a speech she had been planning for weeks to give women the right to vote. He went a moment further in his speech to talk about the controversy he had just seen and to say something of his own in the state of the country.

“I just want to let you know that I’m grateful that I’m here on the floor to hear the words in person. We can read words, but when we have the ability to hear and feel these words, their true meaning is revealed,” Markowski told Booker and Harris.

Murkowski said he wanted to speak today because he thinks he is too quiet.

“Some people challenged me. Some people punished me … from very close friends who said, ‘You’re silent, Lisa. Why don’t you decide what you’re looking at?’ I fought with the right words.Which is a special privilege for a white woman born and raised family in Alaska, so I make my friends and can’t feel the vulgarity and rawness expressed by Orange I didn’t live their life.I could hear, and I I can educate myself, and I can try to heal when we need it. “
