Mo. House Democrats remove Rep. Price from caucus

Missouri House Democrats expel a member from their caucus.

St. Louis Rep. Wiley Price is accused of having sex with an intern, harassing a staffer who reported the claim, then lying while under investigation. Democrats voted to expel him from the caucus on Sunday.

House work re-starts Monday in Jefferson City, after a week-plus delay due to a COVID-19 outbreak. The Senate continues as scheduled, even though Sen. Andrew Koenig is one of the latest state lawmakers to test positive.

More from The Associated Press:

The number of confirmed coronavirus cases among Missouri lawmakers is continuing to grow. At least four more lawmakers told The Associated Press on Friday that they had contracted COVID-19 since the session began on Jan. 6. That’s in addition to three others previously reported. The House canceled all work this week because of the virus outbreak. But the Senate remained in session. One of those who tested positive is Sen. Andrew Koenig. He had presented a bill to a Senate committee on Wednesday that would crack down on public health orders limiting crowd sizes in homes, businesses and places of worship.
