Sen. Joe Lieberman's relationship with the Democratic Party is in question after a meeting with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, steamed over the Connecticut independent's high-profile support of John
McCain for president, the Associated Press reported.
In a stern statement after Thursday's 45-minute meeting, Reid said no official decisions have been made. An aide to the Nevada Democrat, however, said Reid was leaning toward removing Lieberman as chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. The aide spoke on condition of anonymity because the discussions were confidential.
Reid said: "While I understand that Sen. Lieberman has voted with Democrats a majority of the time, his comments and actions have raised serious concerns among many in our caucus."
