Critical Vote on Santos’ Expulsion Set for ThursdayNovember 29, 2023
George Santos, a controversial Republican congressman, faces possible expulsion from Congress, with a vote scheduled on Thursday or Friday. Santos has faced numerous scandals and controversies, with an ethics committee report raising serious concerns about his conduct. While Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson expressed reservations about the expulsion, Rep. Nick LaLota predicted that there will be enough Republican votes to oust Santos. Some Republicans, including the far-right Freedom Caucus, plan to vote against expelling Santos, making it a challenge to reach the two-thirds majority required for expulsion. If Santos is expelled or resigns, a special election would be held to fill his seat, with Democrats aiming to flip the district. Despite the challenges, Santos remains defiant, refusing to resign and vowing to fight the allegations against him.
