House Votes to Expel Republican Rep. and Serial Fabulist George Santos over Ethics Violations

HeadlineDec 04, 2023

The House voted Friday to expel New York Republican George Santos over multiple ethics violations, making him just the sixth congressmember to ever be ousted from the House by fellow lawmakers. The bipartisan vote came as Santos is facing a 23-count federal indictment including fraud related to his campaign finances. He also repeatedly lied about his family, background and professional experience. Santos’s parting words as he left the House building: “To hell with this place.” A special election is expected to be scheduled in February to fill Santos’s seat.
