George Santos Refuses to Resign on Eve of House Vote on His Expulsion

HeadlineDec 01, 2023

The House of Representatives is voting today over whether to expel New York Congressmember George Santos, who repeatedly lied about his professional experience, his background, and likely committed multiple violations of campaign finance rules. Santos painted himself as a victim of a “smear campaign” and refused to resign as he addressed lawmakers Thursday.

Rep. George Santos: “When this vote is on the floor, it is in the conscience of all of my colleagues that they believe that this is a correct thing to do. So be it. Take the vote. I am at peace.”

If ousted, Santos would become just the sixth member of the House ever to be removed by fellow lawmakers.
