BREAKING: Troy Brown Resigns From Louisiana Senate

After a couple of rough days in the Louisiana Senate, Troy Brown finally bowed to the inevitable. He resigned his Senate seat rather than be expelled.

Senators wanted to expel Brown after his arrest and conviction for domestic violence related charges twice within a year. As it became clear after yesterday’s hearing, Brown was likely to be expelled on Monday.

Here’s the video of Brown’s resignation speech from WBRZ’s Facebook page.

Brown also sent this resignation letter to Senate President John Alario and Governor John Bel Edwards.


Brown was likely facing a 36-3 expulsion vote with only Yvonne Dorsey-Colomb and Regina Barrow voting with Brown.
