Senators are reading the letter that got Elizabeth Warren silenced


After Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was silenced on the Senate floor for reading a letter from Coretta Scott King, other Democratic senators have read the letter on the Senate floor. 

Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM) read the letter Tuesday night after Warren was banned from speaking, as did Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR), ThinkProgress reports. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) then did the same Wednesday morning.

None of the men who read the letter were silenced.

Coincidentally, actor George Takei called for Democrats to do exactly that.
