LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Louisville Metro Council voted unanimously to remove Judy Green, district one, from the council on Tuesday night.
The 20-0 votes covered each of two findings that Green violated city ethics rules regarding money paid for the "Green Clean Team" youth program and money paid to the 100 Black Men group.
The council deliberated late Tuesday afternoon after two days of hearings. Green was not present for any of the hearing, nor the decisions. Her attorney walked out of the proceedings as they began on Monday.
Green, a Democrat, resigned her district one seat on Friday. Her letter to council president Jim King said the resignation would be effective "immediately;" however, council rules would not allow it to accept her resignation until September 22.
The council's decisions mean Green would not be able to run for the district one seat in a special election.
