Republican Senator Cory Gardner will move to expel Judge Roy Moore from the U.S. Senate if he is elected to the legislative body.
On Monday afternoon, Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner said the Senate should vote to expel Roy Moore in the increasingly-unlikely event the Alabama Republican nominee wins a special election on December 12. "If (Moore) 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," Gardner, who runs the GOP Senate campaign arm, said in a statement.
The last time a sitting U.S. Senator was expelled from the U.S. Senate was during the U.S. Civil War.
. Fourteen of the 16 were expelled for supporting the Confederate cause during the Civil War. The last Senator to be formally expelled from the Senate was Indiana Democratic Sen. Jesse Bright in 1862.
