Best Answer

Members of The House of Representatives can vote for an exclusion. Voting for an exclusion, or the refusal to seat a newly elected representative, calls for a majority vote. However, this is not just arbitrary. The offending member must meet certain disqualification offenses in order for the House to take such drastic measures as to deny an elected member a seat in Congress.

Do the newly elected house or the old house elect the president if he doesn't get 270 electoral votes?

The designated date when the Vice President calls a special joint session of Congress to count the electoral votes is January 6, three days after the beginning of the new Congressional session. Although everyone knows in November what the outcome of the elections will be, as long as all of the electors vote as expected, i.e. all of the electors vote as they had pledged to vote, I imagine that each step in the process would be executed at its proper time anyway, meaning that the newly elected House would elect the President and the Senate with its newly elected members would elect the Vice President.
