Sexual misconduct in and out of Congress

Republicans (and some Democrats) are calling for John Conyers to resign his seat in the House because of some clearly reprehensible sexual harassment and probably sexual assault while he was a member of Congress. Some Republicans are calling on Al Franken to resign because of his sexual misconduct (some of which he’s admitted) before he was elected to any office. But those same Republicans seem to take the position that it’s up to the voters of Alabama to decide if they want to elect Roy Moore to the Senate, despite compelling evidence that he’s a pedophile and sexual predator. Wouldn’t it be more consistent if they let the voters in Conyers’ district decide next year if they want to return him to Congress, and let Minnesota voters make the same decision about Franken?
