The Elected Democrat at the center of a controversy in Montana just got bad news in court.
Rep. Zooey Zephyr is the transgender lawmaker who took his activism to the floor of the House, not by following the established and traditional rules of orderly debate, but by turning the House into a venue for noisy and aggressive protest.
Zephyr was angry that the other party passed legislation he disliked, so he rallied the troops for some typical leftist community activism.
Referring to "Zooey Zephyr" and his #transurrection in Montana.
If you're not a Montana resident, stay the hell out of our lawmaking.
If you're here to riot, I don't care if you're a resident or not: leave. https://t.co/tm9AWWiOGf

BREAKING: The Montana House of Reps has been shut down by left-wing protesters who are there protesting the censure of transgender Democrat Rep. Zooey Zephyr, that was led by the @MTFreedomCaucus, for telling his Republican colleagues they have "blood on their hands" for passing… pic.twitter.com/MnOyO4FhlN

In DC, such behavior resulted in serious criminal penalties for (among other things) ‘Corruptly obstructing, influencing, or impeding an official proceeding is a felony under U.S. federal law.’ See: 18 U.S.C. § 1512(c)(2)
In Tennessee, that same behavior resulted in 3 people being invited to the White House.
What does it get you in Montana? It gets you barred from participating in the current session of the House.
Zephyr was NOT happy with the sanction he received from the House, so he went to court. If he was hoping the court would force a reinstatement so he could return triumphantly like the so-called ‘Tennessee Three’ did, he was very much mistaken.
Rep. Zooey Zephyr, the transgender state lawmaker silenced after telling Republicans they would have blood on their hands for opposing gender-affirming health care for kids, was barred from returning to the Montana House floor in a Tuesday court ruling that came just hours before the Legislature wrapped up its biennial session.
District Court Judge Mike Menahan said it was outside his authority to overrule lawmakers who voted last week to exclude Zephyr from the House floor and debates. He cited the importance of preserving the Constitution’s separation of powers between the legislative, executive and judicial branches.
“Plaintiffs’ requested relief would require this Court to interfere with legislative authority in a manner that exceeds this Court’s authority,” Menahan wrote in his ruling.
The punishment against Zephyr was through the end of the 2023 session. Since Montana’s Legislature convenes every two years, Zephyr would have to be re-elected in 2024 before she[sic] could return to the House floor in two years. — AP
Meanwhile, civil disobedience continues to spill over into State Legislatures, with nary a peep about the ‘threat to democracy’ such actions pose by either the White House or by AG Garland.
Remember when they told us that fighting with police, especially in the sacred halls of our democratic institutions made you a bad person?
