State Representative Don Shooter faces a possible expulsion vote today. That follows the release earlier this week of an investigative report looking into allegations of sexual harassment against the Yuma lawmaker.

House Speaker J.D. Mesnard has said he plans to introduce a motion today to formally censure Shooter, but stopped short of seeking his removal; it takes a two-thirds vote to expel a member.

House Majority Whip Kelly Townsend, though, says Shooter needs to resign, and that if he doesn’t by the time the House convenes later today, she’ll move to have him expelled.

Representative Townsend joins The Show's Mark Brodie to talk about this.
