(CNN) - Senate Republicans are expected on Wednesday to strip Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski from her post as ranking Republican on the Senate Energy Committee.
Republicans say they will vote to elect an acting ranking member and then the full GOP conference will ratify the vote.
Republicans will also vote to elect a replacement for Murkowski, R-Alaska, in the leadership.
Good! She is a turn coat like Charlie Crist who has caused Meek to lose in California. Murkowski is just another liberal with a entitlement thought process.
mean and evil.
appointed by her daddy.
this RINO woman looks nasty.
I don't know why I wrote California but I meant Florida where Charlie Crist being a turncoat caused Meek to not get elected.
They are such classy people. She didn't abandon the party. She hasn't bucked thier political adgenda.
What they have done is allowed th Palins and Tea Partyers to get away with abucting elections. and now that she is standing up to this very smalll group, she is being punished.
Thet must be proud of the support they are giving this family and its legacy.
Lisa Murkowski has lost touch with the people that have supported her in the past.She needs to go.
she should switch party to vote with democrats.
When this moderate republican will have brain that party of NO does not need them.
She isn't likely to win her write-in effort, so that will become a moot issue.
She needs to bow out gracefully. She lost the nomination already and she needs to listen to the will of the state's voters. Her actions now like a spoiled brat are likely why she lost the primary election.
Murkowski is a Senator until the end of the year, is up for election as a write-in candidate, and has quite a bit of support. Yet her Repugnant friends are already picking the meat off her bones. The Senate must be a real dog-eat-dog place, and she's the one wearing Milk Bone undies.
JOE MILLER admitted to taking farm subsidies for six years, his
campaign saying that he is NOT against ALL government spending!
The Tea Party is showing its true colors every day, and the
Republicans are now in full lock- step with them. Their new motto seems
to be, we want "Smaller government, unless we need the money".
Loyalty be damned!
This women is a very bitter loser, she should be removed from office immediately
WOW what if she wins the election. She won't forget what you have done and when you want your agenda to move forward... I hope she is the one who is the lone standout and votes against the "establishment"!!! LOL Where is the popcorn?!?!?!
What has she got t lose? if she loses her senate completely, she'll lose that spot anyways? win-win for her.
This is a woman who doesn't want to leave Washington she got beat and is a sore loser. She will do anything to keep her "Senate" seat. She as forgotten that the people of AK have "Fired" her because she did not do the job she was elected to. She doesn't have to worry about going on unemployment because she will get her Senate Pension and health care paid for the "Tax Payer" so I can't see why she is complaining. I know why she is complaining she now knows that she has to go out and get a job or become a "lobbyist" that's probably what she will do. This is a good example of old time politicians who get voted out they just don't want to go. As you can see all of her Senate pals are not stripping her of all her duties because she got beat.
Hey, Senator, now that your party is taking away all your power within the system, it is time to thumb your nose at them and start voting your conscience, not doing whatever Mitch McConnell says you should do.
The raw vindictiveness of Republicans never ceases to amaze. What the good senator is doing is perfectly legal and appropriate given the outside influence of the TP in the primary. The out-of-control spiral to the right continues.
