Caucus Boots Politician Over Remarks on Jews

From Times Wire Reports

Germany's conservative opposition party expelled a lawmaker from its group in Parliament after he made remarks comparing Jews to Nazis.

Christian Democratic lawmakers voted 195 to 28 to boot Martin Hohmann out of their caucus. It means Hohmann cannot speak or vote for the Christian Democrats in Parliament, though he remains a lawmaker and a member of the party.

Hohmann, 55, has apologized but has not retracted his remarks.
