The Dems will have to clean their own house first.
Minnesota Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar raised the prospect of expelling Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore from the Senate once he’s sworn-in to office, should he win, due to the sexual harassment and assault allegations made against him.
Four women came forward to say Moore made inappropriate sexual advances toward them when he was in his 30s and they were teenagers. One woman alleged he groped her during a date.
Klobuchar said on NBC’S “Meet The Press” Sunday the Senate may be forced to accept Moore as a member, but that doesn’t mean he has to stay a senator.
“We may not have much choice on that but we have choice on something else. That is that you can expel a senator once they are in with two-thirds of the vote after the ethics committee does an investigation,” she said.
But, all that can be avoided if Alabama voters go for the Democrat in the race, she said to host Chuck Todd.
“There is a step between here, Chuck. That is that there is an alternative candidate in Doug Jones, former U.S. Attorney, great prosecutor, someone running on trust with the voters and also healthcare in Alabama and the real issues that will effect the people of that state,” Klobuchar said.
