As expulsion vote nears, Santos and Miller have nasty House floor exchange

Embattled Rep. George Santos got into a heated floor discussion with Rep. Max Miller as the chamber debated whether to expel the New York Republican on Thursday.

After Miller called Santos a “crook,” the New Yorker referenced past allegations of alleged abuse in a relationship by Miller, calling the Ohio lawmaker a “woman beater.” Miller has forcefully denied those allegations, suing the woman for defamation but voluntarily dropping the lawsuit earlier this year.

Santos also moved to have Miller’s remark taken down, saying it violated House decorum rules. The request, however, was not ruled in order.

A vote on whether to expel Santos is expected Friday.
