New York Republican introduces resolution to expel Santos

New York Republicans, led by Rep. Anthony D’Esposito, have formally filed a resolution to expel Rep. George Santos from the House.

The first-term Republican filed the resolution to remove his colleague Thursday afternoon, announcing it in a floor speech shortly after. It could only pass with a two-thirds majority. The House will have to consider the measure next week.

“You don’t get to come here based on lying to all your voters and all your colleagues. That is a minimum standard that should be enough, I think, for two thirds of the house to expel,” said Rep. Nick LaLota, another New York Republican who has pushed to expel Santos.

D’Esposito said if the resolution is successful, he believes Republicans could still hold onto the seat.

“I am confident that in a special election, there are few Republican committees stronger in this country than the Nassau County [GOP],” he told reporters. “I am confident that we will win that special election.”

House Republicans from New York have teased the move, as Santos has faced a slew of federal charges.
