Mississippi Rep Charged With Punching Wife Could be Removed

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) The Mississippi House speaker said Friday that he is asking lawyers to research how to remove a lawmaker if it's true that the man punched his own wife and does not resign voluntarily.

Second-term Republican Rep. Doug McLeod of Lucedale was arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic violence after deputies were called to his home late Saturday.

Republican Speaker Philip Gunn said Friday that the House Ethics Committee will "closely monitor this case."

1. The punch was bad enough, but he was also abusive if it is true that he

threatened to kill his wife's dog.
