Question: Should Rep. Bob Ney (R-OH) not be expelled from the House of Representatives now that he has pled guilty to repeated instances of bribery, public corruption and other bad acts?
Yes, needless to say, he says he's going to resign in a "few weeks
", according to his lawyer. And he's not on the ballot for reelection.
But just as a matter of principle, shouldn't someone who has said in open court that he accepted bribes in exchange for services as congressman just be booted? Not, hang around until the end of the year to finish up his congressional business?
