Illinois House Panel Votes 11-1 to Recommend Expulsion Of Accused Lawmaker


A state lawmaker is a step closer to losing his seat in the Illinois House.

 

A House panel voted 11-1 to recommend expulsion for Representative Derrick Smith, who is accused of taking a $7,000 bribe in exchange for helping a day care center land a lucrative state grant.

 

Smith’s fate is now up to the full House, which has not set a schedule for when it may hold an expulsion vote.

 

Even if Smith is expelled from the House, he remains on the November ballot.
