As expected, the North Carolina House today voted to expell one of its members, Thomas Wright, who was accused of "mishandling" (aka embezzling) funds. The vote was 109-5.

GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
