Representative George Santos Learns His Fate
The House of Representatives has voted, and the verdict is in.
Representative George Santos has been expelled from Congress.
Santos has been indicted on a whopping 23 counts of fraud, falsified records, identity theft, and a long list of other charges, including using campaign funding to purchase luxury goods and procedures like Botox.
Botox? Are you kidding me?
Of course, Santos has pleaded not guilty to all these indictments.
Unfortunately for poor Santos, many members of Congress believe he did commit these crimes.
“I believe as I’ve stated that George Santos has committed crimes. He’s defrauded voters, taxpayers and donors. And we have established, through a comprehensive investigation, the standard by which he should be expelled,” said Congressman Marc Molinaro (R-NY) to reporters.
While Santos has not yet been convicted of any of these crimes, lawmakers were certain these were not the morals and values they wanted in the House.
Santos had to go.
Congress met to take a vote, and the results delivered the final blow to Santo’s time in the chamber.
Santos' colleagues voted to expel him by a margin of 311 to 114.
After the vote, Congressman Steny Hoyer (D-MD) told Fox News Digital that Santos “defamed the House of Representatives… and was not an appropriate person to represent people in the United States Congress.”
Now, the New York Republican is officially former Rep. George Santos.
The GOP is supposed to uphold truth and honesty.
Santos has made a mockery out of what it means to be a REAL Republican.
It is always refreshing to see Congress taking out the trash for once.
Now, unless Santos agrees to a plea deal, he will go to trial in September of 2024.
Seeing as Santos has pleaded not guilty, it looks like we will see him in court next fall.
But for now, good riddance.
