UKIP AM Michele Brown has been suspended from the Senedd for seven days for making a racist remark.
She described the Labour MP Chuka Umunna as a "coconut", claiming that his background made him think like a white person although he is black. Her comment was in a phone conversation recorded by a friend, who made it public when they subsequently fell out.
A cross party committee of AMs recommended the suspension and it was put to a vote by AMs after Michelle Brown's appeal against the committee's findings was rejected by a retired judge.
Michelle Brown herself was not in the Senedd but her party leader, Neil Hamilton spoke against her suspension.
Plaid Cymru Leader Leanne Wood suggested it was a problem that Michelle Brown will be back representing the North Wales electoral region in a week's time.
But Neil McEvoy, who sits as an independent after being suspended from Plaid Cymru, disagreed with his former leader.
The motion to suspend Michelle Brown was passed by 38 votes to three.
