Senator Katrina Robinson (D)–District 33, Memphis–is very assertive. She is quick to argument her point of view but is usually on the wrong side of TLRC positions. Robinson has a questionable past with federal charges of misappropriating funds. At this time, she is still seated as a Tennessee State Senator.

Senator Robinson has a 32% vote score, reflective of eleven votes contrary to TLRC recommendations. Nine times the senator voted in agreement with our positions. Senator Robinson sponsored thirty-two bills, two of which passed into law. Her bills are reflective of her political philosophy, which is more government help for those who do not do enough to help themselves and at the expense of those who do.

We do not need more laws; we need better laws, and enforcement of the laws already on the books. The grassroots are looking for courage in our legislators: courage to stand up for constitutional principles over pressure from party leadership and paid lobbyists.

We are at a crisis point and now is the time to stand for the people instead of special interests, the wealthy, and well-connected, and against those who assume power through corruption and coercion. If we do not, we could very well lose our republic and our liberties. Democrats and Republicans alike need to step up now to save our constitutionally protected rights and liberties. Our republic is under attack!
