George Santos is seeking retribution following his expulsion from the House in a decisive vote: Live.

George Santos was removed from his position in the US House of Representatives with a significant majority vote.

George Santos, a Republican representative, was removed from the House by a vote that included support from over one hundred Republicans and nearly all Democrats.

Mr. Santos is now part of a small group of legislators who have been removed from their positions, based on a critical 56-page report from the House Ethics Committee. The report stated that there is significant evidence that Mr. Santos broke federal laws.

Mr. Santos left the floor feeling defeated and commented, “They have established a dangerous precedent for themselves.”

A vote to expel Mr Santos required a two-thirds majority. 311 members voted in favor of his removal, while 114 voted against it and two voted present. The entire GOP leadership was against the ouster.

On Thursday, while addressing the House, Mr Santos stated that he was content with the result of the vote. He also mentioned that he has come to terms with being expelled.

This occurred several hours after he held a media briefing where he declined to step down and stated that “if I resign, they succeed” while maintaining that he was a target of “harassment”.

Although he stated during an interview that he would leave gracefully, Mr. Santos actually went on X late Friday night and started planning his retaliation against House members from the New York area who voted to remove him.


George Santos may no longer be with us, but there will still be others like him.

Eric Garcia writes:

George Santos achieved his desired outcome.

During the October speaker’s race, I observed the now-expelled New York Republican become aggressive towards a pro-Palestinian activist who had previously questioned him. While leaving the meeting room in the Longworth House Office Building, I inquired about Jim Jordan, but the congressman instead yelled at the activist, calling them “human scum.”

Without hesitation, the entire group of journalists shifted their focus away from the disorganization within the GOP and directed it towards him, transforming the situation into a spectacle. This is exactly what he desired. He successfully gained the attention and participation of the press, as well as members of the House Republican conference and even a few Democrats, as he diverted attention from his legal issues.

The House’s decision to remove him from office will not discourage him, as he has consistently used attempts to shame him as opportunities. Additionally, members of the Republican party in the House have created a system that discourages the pursuit of policy and instead rewards those who view Congress as a platform to promote themselves rather than enact meaningful change.

The media is equally responsible for giving him what he desires, just like everyone else.

Kimmel told Santos to enjoy their time in prison.

In his Thursday night broadcast, Mr. Kimmel criticized Mr. Santos for the House’s delay in expelling him.

In spite of the unknown circumstances, Mr. Kimmel mentioned that Mr. Santos is taking advantage of his remaining time in the public eye.

What were the findings of the House ethics committee report?

In early November, the committee released a long report stating that there was reliable proof suggesting that the Republican party misused campaign funds for personal expenses, engaged in fraudulent activities, and gave false information to the Federal Election Commission (FEC).

The conclusion of the lengthy investigation was detrimental for Mr. Santos, who had relied on it as his lifeline to withstand the multiple attempts made by his colleagues, even those from his own political party, to remove him from office.

Unfortunately, John Bowden’s account is full of instances of deceit, dishonesty, and further acts of fraud.
