Congress Kicks Santos Out

In a historic vote, the United States Congress showed George Santos the door. 

Santos, the gay Congressman from New York who lied his way into office, was expelled on Dec. 1 in a bipartisan vote that required approval by more than two-thirds of the House. 

“To hell with this place,” uttered a disgruntled Santos as he left the Capitol, followed closely by a horde of media. 

It marked the first time since the Civil War that a member of Congress was expelled without having been convicted of a crime. Overall, only five people have ever been expelled before Santos. 

“We did it. We expelled George Santos,” said Rep. Robert Garcia (D-CA), who introduced a privileged resolution that called for Santos’ ouster. 

It turned out, the third time was a charm. The vote was 311-114 in favor of expelling Santos, with 105 Republicans voting to give one of their own the boot. 

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) tried to save Santos, arguing Botox treatments and OnlyFans subscriptions did not merit an unprecedented act such as expulsion. Like Gaetz, South Florida Republicans Maria Elvira Salazar and Brian Mast also voted against expulsion. 

Ultimately, the release of a House Ethics Committee report sealed Santos’ fate. The committee found “substantial evidence” of wrongdoing and misconduct. The evidence showed widespread fraud, deceiving donors and misuse of campaign funds. 

Santos faces 23 federal charges and is scheduled to go to trial in Sept. 2024. 

Going forward, Santos said he would seek to expose alleged misdeeds by members of Congress and unequivocally supports former President Donald Trump’s bid to return to the White House.
