Lena Taylor

A Wisconsin state senator was cited for disorderly conduct and making a scene inside a Wells Fargo bank on Friday.

WISN reports Lena Taylor, a Democratic state senator representing Milwaukee, became enraged and berated a teller who refused to cash a $831 check because she did not have sufficient funds in her account.

Two plain clothes police officers who witnessed the encounter overheard Taylor call the teller a “house ni–er” for following the bank’s policies.



According to WISN:

“Milwaukee Police officers …. Overheard Taylor berating the teller and intervened. A shift lieutenant arrived on the scene shortly thereafter and, after reviewing the bank’s security camera footage, issued Taylor a municipal citation for disorderly conduct.”

The Wisconsin attorney general forwarded a reporter‘s questions to Taylor’s office. Tylor’s spokesperson stated Taylor would release a statement about the incident on Monday.

The bank incident was just the latest in a series of public outbursts by Taylor.

Taylor was ticketed in 2009 for crossing the center line with her car. She berated the Milwaukee officers who pulled her over, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

The police report from the incident said Taylor told officers we “shouldn’t waste our energy for the stop and she can’t be expected to wait for the light. Taylor was very argumentative and appeared her intent was to provoke an argument with us officers,” according to the news site.

Taylor convinced a police captain to take care of the ticket for her, but it was later reinstated by Chief Edward Flynn and she paid the $122 fine.

In 2016, half of Taylor’s office staff quit during the Legislative budget writing process.

  • Rachel

    WF is a rip-off. Someone wrote me a check being that it was a WF account I took it there to cash it. Well since I didn’t have an account with WF myself to cash the check would have been a $7 service fee. I was baffled lol. I just took the check to my own bank.

  • FukkFolks2018

    FUKKKKKKKKK I thought the pic was of the BANK teller. Not of Lena. I thought for sure Lena was gonna be some old ass white lady on a cane who looked like her sister would be named Ms. Daisy.

  • Ryan

    No sympathy for Wells Fargo. They let randoms steal money from my account twice in the past year and did no investigation. Plus they were the ones opening up fake accounts in people’s names. Biggest damned thieves of them all.

  • CrunchyBlack1

    i had to go jump through hoops to get a college cash back card with a $500 limit 10 years ago (had $3,000 in the bank). I switched on they ass, got a $3k card off top and after waiting, got another one for $10k.

  • Vegas1989

    I have heard horrible stories about WF….I know that I bank at BoA…but I acted a fool one time and called Corporate office……I got a lot of goodies for free…..My friends want to know how I don’t pay for cashier checks and a lot of stuff…..It’s call take all yo money out and watch how they respond…..LOL

  • KISSmyENTIREass

    Well just as if it was a REPUBLICAN or any person in general they should be reprimanded! If it was up to me fired! There’s plenty of other bad behavior she got away with. MY GRANDMA HATE THE WORD HOUSE NIGGAS! SHE AND HER MOM WAS CALLED THAT THEY WHOLE LIFE BECAUSE THE COLOR OF THERE SKIN. Believe it or not a lot came from black people.

  • Vegas1989

  • Renee26

    I wouldn’t be able to bank there… I use a credit union and never had to have the money in my account to cover a check. If the check bounces the issuer will be contacted and responsible for the debt.

  • Vickix

    I use to be a teller. If a customer coming into bank with a 830 check and their account is -900 that means I can deposit the check, but the customer will not be walking away with any money.

    Most likely the Senator thought she could walk away with all her money and not have to cover her insufficient funds. So the teller was probably being nice and letting her know if she deposit, she will not get all the money or either take your butt on to a check cashing place and get your money.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    what thee fawk … I would have lost my job that day … Some folks straight up need their dome rocked … Instantly …?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    This ??.. you don’t know what people be going through and you fix your lips to say that… Chile ..

  • Coy little wink

    She looks familiar…why lawd ?

  • Sushi

    She should have spoken to me……

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    If you’re 51 years old, a state senator, and have a law degree… but you don’t have $831 in your account to cover a check, you may want to examine your life a little bit.

  • EMILY POST

    How not shocking about the Democratic senators behavior… Her Party is notoriously known for going ballastic on other blacks and treating them terrible. Aww she did not get her way and the Democrat went Ballastic typical.

  • Dollface

    I wonder why two plain clothes police officers just so happen to be in earshot of this conversation. Seems like they’re spying on her and following her. Could be wrong tho!

  • Jethro

  • Elevated Soul

    IT’S A BANK and perhaps there may have been a robbery there or perhaps an active robbing crew which would explain the undercovers….

  • Dollface

    See you just as bad as her with that “like many black people” statement. Statistically the probability of two plain police officers being in the same bank as a congress woman within earshot of this conversation is just very unlikely, I don’t care how I sound. Unless of course this a special bank that only certain members of state/fed workers can bank with, is the only other rational explanation.

    I wasn’t being paranoid, I just made an observation.

  • i troll it like i see it

    It’s not the tellers fault you had insufficient funds you freaking idiot. So glad someone over heard her revealing herself.

    I was wondering the same thing, a broke senator?

  • stevetheque

    Move along, nothing to see here but a booger wolf doing what they do!

  • Jethro

    I’m sure that’ll be covered during the investigation. ?

  • Quitedeliteful

    Sounds like she has anger management problems. Nobody is going to lose their job because you want to cash a bogus check, Do like everybody else and wait until payday…

  • MsPam

  • Munchosgirl

    I am thinking that had to be a personal check as well…

  • Munchosgirl

    I know here in Miami, my friend(Wells Fargo customer)cashes their payroll check when they are in the negative. They tried to cash a personal check once and the teller told them no because of the account. I have Bank of America, and direct deposit!

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Dint waste your time responding to ignorance

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    Sounds like the plain clothes officers might’ve worked in the bank prolly for this very reason…

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    And her district still voted her in? Insane people.

  • CookieMobster

    She should be fired and ridiculed like any other race of person that says that word.

  • Allihave2say

    Narcissistic sociopath.

  • Allihave2say

    These people, like Trump, get voted in because the voters hate blacks enough that they’d overlook moral depravation.

  • Quitedeliteful

    She would have gotten at least 100 bucks! ???

  • MRiGOThim

  • Marlika

    If I was that teller I would have embarrassed the phuck out of her broke ass. I remember when I was younger I was a teller AND it was always the broke mofos that came in and gave us a problem. Talking bout their going to close their account if they can’t have their way.?? Bye Bush! ??

  • Bossy704

    She looks like an elementary school teacher we used to have that would smoke crack all night but wear her hair rollers to the crackhouse so she would look put together for school in the morning. She would look at us (her former students) like she was at Sunday tea when we knew good and well what she was doing in the trap. Lena probably carries a set of hair rollers and plastic pearls in the car.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    LOL. yeah it was pretty good. GOOD CATCH (e-high five)

  • Guess Who

    WTF? why the hell could this silly, belligerent broad be shocked that a bank wouldn’t cash a check when the account does not have enough funds?! How the fuk is that the teller’s fault? GIRL, sit your delusional, self-entitled azz down.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Being broke on top of an already bad attitude = periodic outbursts!

  • Ant Hill

    The angry birds flew their coop on this, but I have to agree.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    I’m sure we’ve all had a similar experience at the bank…I personally scurried away, no need to get mad at the teller, go get your finances together boo!!

  • sunni_daze

  • Trace da Ace

Sorry to piggyback off your comment….but I felt “in the moment”…lol

  • sunni_daze

  • Allihave2say

    Because she’s white, female, spreading hate, and more highly regarded than a black person.
