House To Vote In August On Whether To Expel Lawmaker

The Illinois House will meet in special session on August 17th to vote on whether to kick out Rep. Derrick Smith, who is facing federal bribery charges.


A House committee this week recommended that Smith be expelled because of the charges.  Smith denies the federal allegations against him, but refused to testify before the House committees that were investigating the case.


A two-thirds vote of the House would be required to expel Smith from the House... and even then, he would remain on the ballot in November, with a chance to win election to another term in the legislature.
