Disciplining a Member of the HoR
As expected the House of Representatives yesterday voted to censure "Joe" Wilson, the South Carolina Congressman who shouted "You Lie" in the middle of President Obama's joint address to Congress last week.
The Congressional Research Service have produced a paper on measures that may be taken by the House to discipline its members.
It is available at http://www.rules.house.gov/Archives/rl31382.pdf
Newsweek have produced an article which highlights the members who crossed party lines over the resolution. http://blog.newsweek.com/blogs/thegaggle/archive/2009/09/15/joe-wilson-vote-house-censure.aspx
