Former Sen. Barbara Boxer predicted that if elected, Alabama candidate Roy Moore will eventually be expelled from the Senate.

The California Democrat, who served in the House of Representatives from 1983 to 1993 and in the Senate from 1993 to 2016, said that based on her experiences in office, Moore would likely face a serious investigation from the Senate Ethics Committee which would eventually lead to his expulsion, a process she says would “devastate” the Republican Party.

“If they send a child molester into the United States Senate, the Ethics Committee will conduct an investigation that will leave no stone unturned,” she said. “They will reveal other issues and Roy Moore will be expelled, and he’ll be lucky if he doesn’t have criminal charges filed after that’s over.”

Boxer has some experience with the issue of sexual misconduct. She attributes her win in 1993 to anger over the Senate Judiciary Committee’s treatment of Anita Hill, who testified that she was harassed by Supreme Court Justice nominee Clarence Thomas. Shortly after she moved to the upper chamber, Oregon Sen. Bob Packwood faced allegations that he sexually harassed at least 18 women, eventually leading to his resignation.
