How do you expel a senator? 

I bet one person who knows the answer to that question is Alaska’s own Ted Stevens!  A vote is required and two-thirds of its members must vote to expel.  On a side note, I’ll be amazed that two-thirds of that group can agree on anything!

Last Senator to be expelled from the Senate? 

Robert Packwood of Oregon in 1995.
