Disgraced sex-text MP Andrew Griffiths could be stripped of his seat in Parliament after losing a confidence vote by local Tory members.
The Burton MP, 48, quit as a business minister last July after it was discovered he sent 2,000 explicit messages to two women weeks after the birth of his first child.
He gave £700 to Imogen Treharne and her friend and even offered to rent out a flat so that they could hook up while demanding they send him something 'f****** filthy'.
Describing himself as 'evil', he outlined degrading sex acts, demanding explicit pictures and videos and said he'd rather be 'licking naughty girls' instead of 'running the country'.
He was suspended by the party but controversially had the whip reinstated just in time to vote for Theresa May in December's confidence vote in her leadership.
But on Friday East Staffordshire Conservative Association passed a no-confidence motion in him, paving the way to potentially deselect him from the safe Tory seat, Staffordshire Live reported.
Association chairman Conor Wileman told the website: 'A lot of our members are angry and frustrated about the length of time this whole saga has gone on and they want to see a resolution to it.
'Last night was the first time the association has made a clear statement from its membership as to how it feels about the situation and there were upwards of 80 members in the room.
'Numbers fluctuate, but there are around 300 members in total.
'So it's a very, very good snapshot
