JEFFERSON STRIPPED -- "Democrats voted last night to strip Rep. William J. Jefferson (La.) of a plum committee assignment while he is embroiled in a federal bribery investigation."

The vote was not binding on Jefferson, but if he refuses, the Democrats would seek a floor vote to force him out.

Have there been similar moves among Republicans against their members similarly implicated in scandals? TPM is asking.
