US House Of Representatives Expels First-Term New York Republican

WASHINGTON — For only the sixth time in its history, the U.S. House of Representatives has expelled one of its members. Enough of the majority Republicans joined most of the minority Democrats on Friday morning to oust George Santos, a first-term Republican from New York.

The House Ethics Committee recently issued a report finding there was substantial evidence that Santos broke the law. Federal investigators have charged Santos with fraud, money laundering, stealing campaign donors’ identities, falsifying campaign finance reports and more.

Santos has pleaded not guilty to all of the 23 federal charges he is facing. He came under intense scrutiny and ridicule after it was revealed he had embellished his education, career and family background.

With a rap of the gavel, Speaker of the House Mike Johnson officially announced Santos’ ouster — 311 members voted for his expulsion. All 114 lawmakers who voted against his removal were Republicans. Two Democrats recorded their vote as present.
