Lynn Beyak is back on the Senate payroll after suspension over letters condemned as racist - 2019-11-27
But her long-term position in the Senate is still an open question. Senators are expected to debate soon whether to suspend her a second time.
Beyak was suspended from the Senate in May after refusing to remove letters from her website that have been widely condemned as racist, and for refusing to apologize for posting them. Beyak issued a statement Wednesday night saying she's "hand delivered" a letter of apology addressed to all senators.
