The electorate does not need to follow the popular vote.

Jeremy Durham expelled from Tennessee House in 70-2 vote
Source: The Tennessean

Embattled Rep. Jeremy Durham, accused of sexual misconduct toward at least 22 women and still under investigation by state and federal officials, was expelled Tuesday from the Tennessee House of Representatives during a special legislative session.

Republicans and Democrats joined together to oust the 32-year-old Franklin Republican, voting 70-2 to cast Durham out after more than an hour of discussion to approve the first legislative expulsion since 1980, and only the second since the Civil War. The House needed 66 votes to remove him.

House Speaker Beth Harwell, who was emotional in a plea to colleagues earlier in the day to protect the identifies of Durham's accusers, said, "I'm very pleased that the House made the decision it did today. This was good for the taxpayers of the state. It was good for the victims of the state."

Durham appeared Tuesday to defend himself before the House. He again noted that no formal complaint had been filed against him and that he's never been charged with a crime.

True; mocking women and the handicapped isn't presidential.

@Suttle Tea,
$19 billion is low-balling the cost of Trump's wall.

@Baldimo,
What would it take for you to believe she doesn't have something more serious?

No, it wasn't an answer to the question asked, and you know it wasn't. You responded with a non sequitor question like a petulant child. (Like answering 'Did you do your homework?' with 'Can you prove I didn't?') The question asked what it would take for you to believe Hillary doesn't have a more serious ailment than what's being reported. If you weren't just playing stupid word games to avoid the glaring , overriding truth about this election (a thoroughly vetted, competent candidate is running against an amoral huckster who would be dangerous in power), you could provide something other than your fact-free, value-less drivel to the discussion.

@Baldimo,
So, Dr Baldimo, what are your qualifications to diagnose from photos as opposed to MDs who diagnosed Mrs Clinton from examination?

A $19 billion wall would not be world class and how many lawsuits would it engender when tRump stiffed the contractors?

@bobsal u1553115,
Here's a number for Trump's wall. $166 billion. Since Mexico said they're not going to pay for it, I guess Trump will fund it - including the on-going cost of maintenance.

Who's in Charge? An Updated Outlook for 2016 House Elections

September 8, 2016

As is the case every two years, all 435 seats in the House of Representatives will be contested this November. Republicans currently* hold 247 seats, Democrats 188. With 218 seats required for control, Democrats must gain 30 seats to take the gavel from Paul Ryan. At this point, that outcome seems unlikely.

We've updated the House interactive map with ten ratings changes from Sabato's Crystal Ball. After these changes, Republicans are safely in control of 206 seats, Democrats 181. That leaves only 48 races that are at least somewhat competitive**; Democrats would need to win 37 of those. At this point, based on the Sabato team's analysis, a Democratic gain of 10-15 seats seems most likely.

@ehBeth,
Since I have only one vote, and the election is beyond my control, I don't worry about who controls congress. It's up to the American voters.
