ND Republicans Censure Two Members Over Expulsion Of Colleague

(Bottineau, ND) -- District Six Republicans have voted to censure their two state representatives after they voted to expel another representative who was accused of a pattern of sexual harassment.  The vote came during their annual Lincoln Day dinner this past weekend in Bottineau.  Many legislators who had voted against expulsion of State Representative Luke Simons say they did not feel he was given due process and was denied a more thorough investigation.  The House voted earlier this month to expel Simons, who has since been replaced by Dori Hauck.
