Can The Senate Vote Out A Member?

Can a member of the senate be voted and removed from office for no confidence without a real ethic violation?

Any Senator can bring a vote of no confidence.


It is how Senator Palpatine became Senate Leader.

No, they would have to willingly resign without an actual violation of law being involved. If that was the case you'd have senate proxy wars with the left voting no confidence to every senator of the right and vice versa.

It was a sad day when General Zod was fired :(

Yep, they go to tribal council and sit on either side of the majority leader.  They take turns voting, if it's a tie they draw stones out of a bag to decide who gets sent home.

Hey bro, it's the Senate not Survivor.

Yeah....it's called impeachment.

It too applies to Congressmen as well as the President.

If we go back to the original way of electing Senators, by State governments,  they will behave better because they could be re-called.   

Direct election of Senators ruined the Senate.     By design.
