How to "nationalize" Cold Cash jefferson in 08'

The US Constitution Aricle 1 section5 states:
[...]Each House may determine the rules of its proceedings, punish its members for disorderly behavior, and, with the concurrence of two thirds, expel a member[...]
Obviously, we can't get the 2/3 vote to boot Jefferson, BUT we can get a lot of democrats ON RECORD as having voted in favor of corruption.

Any vote other than to boot Jefferson can be used by republican challengers NATIONWIDE in political ads to accuse their opponent of being "soft on corruption".

This needs to happen NOW while the committee chairmanships are still under republican control and the issue can be FORCED onto the floor for a vote.

after the swearing in. Before it looks like sour grapes.

After the swearing in, the dems control the committee chairs and house chair though. They would prevent it from ever making it to the floor.
