WI state senator Lena Taylor (D) appears to have a history of making comments without first engaging her brain.
When conservative Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke announced his retirement, the Democrat state senator, without any evidence, accused Clarke of abusing the people he served. Here’s the not-so-classy statement Taylor made to Milwaukee residents regarding Clarke’s retirement:
“This is truly a good Thursday. I want to thank Sheriff Clarke for his decision to step down. After years of abuse at his hands, the people of Milwaukee can sleep soundly tonight.”
The unhinged Democrat has once again, found herself in some hot water with a racist comment she made that was directed at a black bank teller refused to cash her check…
According to The American Mirror, A Wisconsin state senator was cited for disorderly conduct last week after she allegedly berated a black bank teller with racist language over a dispute about a check.
Lena Taylor, a black Democratic state senator representing Milwaukee, received a municipal citation for disorderly conduct on Friday from Milwaukee police who were at the Wells Fargo Bank on W. Wisconsin Ave. on an unrelated call, WISN reports.
Taylor allegedly got into a dispute with a teller who refused to cash an $831 check for esteemed lawmaker because she did not have enough funds in her account to cover it.
Witnesses allege Taylor called the teller a “house ni**er” for following the bank’s policies.
According to WISN:
Milwaukee Police officers …. Overheard Taylor berating the teller and intervened. A shift lieutenant arrived on the scene shortly thereafter and, after reviewing the bank’s security camera footage, issued Taylor a municipal citation for disorderly conduct.
The citation comes with a maximum fine of $500 but is not considered a criminal violation.
Milwaukee Police forwarded WISN’s questions about the incident to Taylor’s office. A spokesperson for the senator said Taylor would issue a statement about the ordeal sometime on Monday.
The incident wasn’t the first time Taylor allegedly lost her temper in public.
Taylor was ticketed in 2009 for crossing the center line and she didn’t hesitate to rip into the Milwaukee officers who pulled her over, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
“The police report from the incident said Taylor told officers ‘we “shouldn’t waste our energy for the stop and she can’t be expected to wait for the light.” Taylor was very argumentative and appeared her intent was to provoke an argument with us officers,’” according to the news site.
Taylor apparently convinced a captain to rescind her ticket, though it was later reinstated by Chief Edward Flynn and she ultimately paid the $122 fine. The Sentinel also highlighted high turnover in Taylor’s Senate office last summer, when more than a half-dozen staffers abandoned the senator during the Legislative budget-writing process.
