Senate GOP Campaign Chair Says Roy Moore Should Be Expelled If He Wins




 

WASHINGTON - National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) said the Senate should vote to expel Roy Moore if he wins the special election for Alabama's open Senate seat next month.

"I believe the individuals speaking out against Roy Moore spoke with courage and truth, proving he is unfit to serve in the United States Senate and he should not run for office," Gardner said in a statement. "If he refuses to withdraw and wins, the Senate should vote to expel him, because he does not meet the ethical and moral requirements of the United States Senate."

A fifth woman, Beverly Young Nelson, came forward on Monday to say that Moore sexually abused her when she was a teen and he was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney in Alabama.

The leader of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee said on Thursday the committee would vote on a bill to protect Robert Mueller, the special counsel appointed to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election, despite objections by the chamber's Republican leadership. Senator Chuck Grassley, the Judiciary Committee's Republican chairman, said he was keeping his word to the bill's backers that the panel would take up the measure if they reached a bipartisan compromise, which they had. U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell had told Fox News on Tuesday that he would not allow a vote on the measure in the full Senate.

Intruders storm Nigerian parliament and snatch mace: Senate spokesman

By Camillus Eboh ABUJA (Reuters) - Three men burst into Nigeria's Senate on Wednesday and snatched the legislature's ceremonial mace, in an incident the body's spokesman blamed on a lawmaker who had been suspended. Decisions taken in the Senate cannot be approved without the mace, an ornamental staff symbolising the authority of the legislature. "Today, some hoodlums led by suspended senator Ovie Omo-Agege walked into the Senate plenary and seized the symbol of authority of the upper legislative chamber, the mace," Senator Aliyu Abdullahi, spokesman for the upper house, said in a statement.
