JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMIZ)

House Democrats voted Sunday to expel Rep. Wiley Price from their caucus.

"This action is consistent with the censure resolution the House of Representatives recently passed, which in addition to other penalties called for the denial of privileges of office," House Minority Leader Crystal Quade said in a statement.

The statement also said his removal from the House Democratic Caucus was necessary to hold him accountable for his actions.

House lawmakers voted earlier this month 140-3 to censure Democratic Rep. Wiley Price after he was accused of having sex with an intern.

  1. Whaaaaat?!? Kicked out for having sex with an intern? I though having sex with interns (gender neutral term) was a right-of-passage for Democratic elected leaders (another gender neutral term). And obstructing and lying to the Ethics Commission, Come on Man (Not gender neutral – Bad President* Biden), as the great Democratic Party thought leader, James Carville wrote 20 years ago: “you don’t abandon a guy over sex.”

    What happened to vilifying the victim and shaming the press to save the Democrat’s political career. We need more comments about dragging “hundred dollars through a trailer park” to discredit stuff like this. After all, doesn’t the end (Democratic power and control) justify the means?

    This is just wrong, it’s not like he was sleeping with a Chinese spy or threatening people’s civil rights with “a short war” because “the government has nukes.” Now something like that would justify removal, not sex with an intern. Come on Man.
