Expelled Tennessee lawmakers both seeking seats again

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Two expelled Black Democratic lawmakers in Tennessee say they want to be reappointed, then elected back to their seats. The comments by former Reps. Justin Jones and Justin Pearson follow their ouster by the Republican-led Legislature for a protest on the House floor urging passage of gun-control measures in the wake of a deadly school shooting in Nashville. Both former lawmakers told NBC's Meet the Press on Sunday that they want to return to their positions as lawmakers. The Nashville metro council is likely to reappoint Jones during a specially called meeting Monday. The Shelby County Commission plans to announce soon when it will meet to fill the vacancy left by Pearson’s expulsion. Likewise, commissioners can reinstall Pearson.
