Illinois Democrat Luis Gutierrez will not be reunning for re-election. He has also been arrested a couple of times for protesting with the uninformed.
During the State of the Union address, Luis walked out of the House chamber while the crowd chanted “USA!”
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi urged her Democratic colleagues to stay in the chamber Tuesday night during President Trump’s first State of the Union address, or don’t come at all, but one part of the president’s speech was just too much for Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez to bear.
More via Washington Examiner:
Democrats spent more time sitting than standing as President Trump delivered the State of the Union. Toward the end, when the crowd filled the chamber with chants of “USA, USA, USA,” Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., hoisted a metaphorical progressive banner as he marched out of the chamber in protest.
Trump reached across the aisle repeatedly during the hour-and-a-half address. Progressives like Gutierrez didn’t even hide the fact that they were slapping it away.
Not all Democrats were so sullen though. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., clapped a couple times and some senators in his conference even stood for the occasional applause line. No one can blame them for not cheering louder. After all, it is the job of the minority to check the majority. The resistance from Gutierrez and company was different.

President Trump: “Freedom stands tall over one more monument: this one. This Capitol. This living monument — this is the monument to the American people.” https://t.co/bggeAIE8lP pic.twitter.com/b6Qfv50wSz

Good riddance, Luis.
You won’t be missed.
