Should Roy Moore win the Alabama special Senate election Tuesday night, Senate Republicans will meet Wednesday morning to discuss where they go from here, several Republicans with knowledge of the meeting told NBC News.

Moore has been accused by several women of groping them when they were in their teens and he was in his early 30s, and several GOP lawmakers, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), have said that if Moore is elected, he will immediately undergo an ethics probe. During the meeting, they will decide as a group if they will seat Moore on any committees or let him participate in policy discussions, NBC News reports.
