Skip to comments.Dem kicked off House floor for ‘hoodie’ in Trayvon Martin protest [Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.]

Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) on Wednesday morning was asked to leave the House floor after removing his suit jacket to reveal a hoodie, then putting the hood on his head to protest the Trayvon Martin killing in Florida.
Racial profiling has to stop, Rush said. Just because someone wears a hoodie does not make them a hoodlum. Rush also put on sunglasses.
The Illinois Democrat quoted the Bible while presiding officer Gregg Harper (R-Miss.) repeatedly interrupted him, then asked the sergeant at arms to enforce the House prohibition on hats in the chamber.
The chair must remind members that clause 5 of rule 17 prohibits the wearing of hats in the chamber when the House is in session, Harper said after Rush left. The chair finds that the donning of a hood is not consistent with this rule. Members need to remove their hoods or leave the floor.
