Three Code Pink protesters were all found guilty of charges relating to the disruption of Jeff Sessions confirmation hearing. One of the protesters was dressed up all in pink whereas the two men were dresses up in the tradition clothes of the democratic party, complete with sheets and hoods, crosses bought separately. All three pleaded innocent but were found guilty and will be sentenced on June 21st, where they can receive up to a year in jail or a $2,000 fine, or both.
Remember the lovely Code Pink gal who was dragged out of Jeff Sessions’ confirmation hearing while yelling about “Jim Sessions”?
A jury on Wednesday convicted three Code Pink activists on charges related to a protest at the confirmation hearing of Jeff Sessions for attorney general — including a Virginia woman who said all she did was break out in laughter.
Each of the three protesters faces up to 12 months in jail, $2,000 in fines, or both, depending on the outcome of a June 21 sentencing hearing.
The woman with the laugh, Desiree A. Fairooz, 61, of Bluemont, Va., said she was undeterred. “We’ll face the music when we get to that,” she said.
She didn’t “just laugh,” as you saw above. Still, a year in jail for that seems like a lot. Although keep in mind that the three Code Pink cuties rejected a plea deal and demanded a trial. They wanted to be martyrs, and now they’re getting their wish. I just hope they’re allowed to wear their pussy hats in the joint.
