Skip to comments.Senate GOP campaign chairman calls for Moore to be expelled if he wins

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), who leads the Senate GOP campaign arm, is calling on the Senate to expel embattled Alabama GOP nominee Roy Moore if Moore wins December's special election, the first GOP senator to publicly raise the specter of expulsion.
"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 "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."
Under the Senate rules, a vote of two-thirds of the body can expel a Senator. That would be historic the Senate hasn't expelled a member since 1862.

Did I miss Roy Moore’s jury trial where a verdict convicted him?
Just hope actual voters in Alabama aren't falling for it.
This POS Gardner should expel himself. These clowns really are afraid of Moore.
Already raising the specter of expulsion BEFORE the charges have been proved PROVES the corruption of almost all of the senators up there. They didn't expel Ted Kennedy or scores of others they knew to be immoral. They hate Moore because he IS moral.
We are WAY beyond the Roman Empire on the corruption scale. Wonder why God is waiting so long to strike us down?
You are so old-fashioned. /S
But not Menendez, eh?
This statement flies in the face of the constitution which clearly states “innocent until proven guilty”. This is beyond evil.
If they want to play it that way, we’ll at least get names out of it. Oh, and we will have a VERY extensive list of penalties both real and alleged, worthy of expulsion. How many Senators can stand the scrutiny?
Being pro-abort won’t save you either. It sure didn’t save Bob Packwood.
Another Democrat in an R jerseys speaks out.
The Cheap Labor Express is terrified.
Alexander, Corker, Flake, Graham, Hatch, Heller, Hoeven, Murkowsky, McCain, Rubio, Gardner, Burr, Tillis, Portman, McConnell, Thune, Cornyn, Cochran, Isackson, Blunt, Johnson, Toomey, Capito, Rounds, Fischer, Collins, Wicker, Sasse, Ernst, Lankford, Young, Boozman and Shelby are all undocumented Democrats in R jerseys.
ALL THIS DOES IS RAMP UP FALSE CLAIMS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE
THAT ANYONE CAN MAKE ON ANYONE SEEKING OFFICE!!
Who cares what a swamp rat thinks.
Hey Cory, go F yourself.
“Senate GOP campaign chairman calls for Moore to be expelled if he wins”
Then the trial.
My hands tremble when I think of the GOP campaign committee calling me on the phone next year to make a contribution.
I’m here in Colorado. If the garden hoe runs for the Senate again, I may have to vote Dimocrate for the first time in forty years.
I’m ashamed that this a**hat is my Senator.
If moral and ethics are going to be applied to the Senate, what are they going to use all the newly empty offices for?
Maybe use the Senate floor for high school plays?
These guys didn't want Moore to begin with, and the piling on is over the top obvious.
They can't stand to have someone who doesn't agree with them, replace the riff-raff they have supported for the last fifty years or more.
Prove something beyond a shadow of a doubt, or shut up.
If that’s the case then the Senate should expel McCain who has not only bashed and besmirched the President of the United States but has also lied to the people of the United States and specifically his constituency about who he is and what he supports.
I hate living in a world of stupid peasants influenced by a lying leftist media and ruled by corrupt politicians.
You cant talk about Moore without talking about Menendez.
