SANTOS OUT: House Votes to Expel Controversial Congressman

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.01.23

The House has voted —Santos is out…

Controversial New York Rep. George Santos has been expelled from the House of Representatives after it was discovered he may have been involved in money laundering, wire fraud, stealing funds, and lying on House disclosure forms.

From Fox News:

Expelling a member of Congress takes a two-thirds majority vote. The last time a House lawmaker was expelled was more than two decades ago, when late former Rep. Jim Traficant, D-Ohio, was voted out of Congress in 2002.

Prior to his ousting, Traficant had been convicted of 10 felony counts, including racketeering and taking bribes.

Santos has not been convicted of a crime, but he’s been indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, falsification of records, credit card fraud, and other charges. He’s been accused of using campaign funds on a number of luxury goods and treatments such as botox. He has pleaded not guilty.
