He is believed to be the first state lawmaker in the US to be voted out of his seat since the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct began last fall, reported the Fox News.
The Thursday's vote comes after an investigator determined that the lawmaker was engaged in a "pattern of sexual harassment that created a hostile workplace".
Shooter denied sexual harassment but acknowledged that he had made "jarring, insensitive and demeaning" comments, cited the Fox News.
"I say stupid things and do stupid things I guess," he said, adding, "And I stood up, I apologized to those that I hurt that were legitimate. I can't change the past, but I can change the future if I'm given the opportunity."
He has reportedly said that he deserves to be punished but did nothing to justify expulsion. (ANI)
