Expulsion and impeachment are both political, not criminal proceedings. I'm pretty sure you could expel a congressman for no reason at all if you have the votes, but no one would do that because of the precedent it would set.

I'm too lazy to look them up at the moment, but I know there are expulsion precedents from the Civil War era in regards to the Southerners' seats.

All had to do with congressman accused and summarily found guilty(I suppose) of conspiring with the South during the war.

Oh...come on. I won't speak for AWA...but I don't think that's what he meant. There are some very good single parents out there, but statistically single parents have a rougher go of it...
