Senate ethics committee says Meredith should be kicked out

The Senate ethics committee is recommending that Senator Don Meredith from Scarborough should be expelled from the chamber for engaging in a sexual relationship with a teen girl. The decision belongs to the senators. They may accept or reject the recommendation. Meredith must be given five sitting days in which to respond to the committee report, should he wish, so a vote on his fate can’t occur before next Tuesday at the earliest.  Meredith, a 52-year-old, married, Pentecostal minister, began a relationship with a 16-year-old girl that later became sexual.
