Jedis to be blamed for Amidala's death

In Ep III, do you think that Palpatine will outlaw the Jedi after framing them for Amidala's death?

He will not have been declared Emperor by then and will still have to deal with the Senate before martial law can be declared. Outlawing the Jedi will remove his biggest threat...

Amidala dies of a "broken heart" on Alderaan while looking after Leia. I don't think she's assassinated or anything like that.

Why are the Jedi nearly extinct by Episode IV? Here's a thought: because of what Dooku told Obi-Wan on Geonesis, the Jedi are keeping a closer eye on the Senate than ever before. Maybe some kind of scandal happens where some delegates have their thoughts manipulated in one direction or another. It would be Palpatine's work, of course, but the Jedi would be blamed and accused of "subverting the democratic process". The Jedi are just banned from the Senate floor, at first. But Palpatine stirs up prejudice against the Jedi claiming they are behind the unrest in the galaxy and this will result in the Jedi being hunted down and destroyed.
