EXCLUSIVE: There are two new sexual harassment allegations against Texas Democrat Carlos Uresti but he has no plans to step down, despite calls to do so from fellow lawmakers and longtime family friend U.S. Rep.

There's no process for removing a newly convicted felon?
GUILTY, but you know... carry on or what have you.
Dunno about Texas. However, in Colorado yesterday, a state legislator was removed from office - thrown out by his fellow legislators for sexual harassment. Right before he left, he switched from being a Democrat to being a Republican, so that Republicans now get to name his replacement.
"Lebsock bitterly contested the claims, said his accusers were lying and accused an independent investigator of bias in concluding the claims were credible."
Hmmm did he do that by Tweeting FAKE NEWS, FAKE NEWS!!! ?
Right before he left, he switched from being a Democrat to being a Republican
Of course, how mature.
