Molinaro backs expulsion for Santos

Oct 27, 2023 1:03 am

Kayla Epstein reports for BBC News that Rep. Marc Molinaro was among four New York Republicans introducing a measure on Oct. 26 for a vote of expulsion next week for fellow New York Republican George Santos. The Long Island representative is known as the most prominent liar in all of Washington D.C., no mean feat. Santos is also facing 23 criminal charges. Santos denies the charges of wire fraud, identity theft, lying to Congress, money laundering, and credit card fraud, and insists he will not resign. Santos wrote on social media on Oct. 26, "1. I have not cleared out my office. 2. I'm not resigning. 3. I'm entitled to due process and not a predetermined outcome as some are seeking." Molinaro and Reps. Anthony D'Esposito, Nick LaLota, and Mike Lawler introduced the bill to force Santos out of the House Representatives. The quartet of New York representatives all come from districts Joe Biden won in 2020. Molinaro said, "George Santos is a liar and a fraud who should not be a member of Congress. Since he won't resign and with the House Ethics Committee not moving at the pace we had hoped, we're adjusting our approach and pushing forward a resolution to expel him." If Santos is forced out, the Republicans majority in the chamber would be reduced to four. Read more about this story at the BBC News website.
