Santos faces expulsion resolution from fellow N.Y. Republicans

It’s finally happening. A group of New York Republicans are moving to kick Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.) out of Congress. And this time they expect to actually vote on their expulsion resolution, instead of voting to table the motion.

Rep. Anthony D’Esposito (R-N.Y.) introduced the measure on Wednesday, flanked by New York GOP Reps. Mike Lawler, Nick LaLota and Marc Molinaro.

Democrats moved to expel Santos in May, but Republicans — including the New Yorkers who filed the expulsion resolution Thursday — voted to refer the resolution to the Ethics panel instead.

But the DCCC is still trying to ding the group of endangered House Republicans over the issue, despite the latest news. In a new social media video, the House Democratic campaign arm is slamming the New York GOP contingent for voting to refer the matter to Ethics in May.

The House Ethics Committee is currently investigating Santos at the same time as the federal criminal case plays out. Several Republicans have said Congress should wait for Santos to be convicted or for the Ethics investigation to finish before taking action against the freshman lawmaker.

It’s taking the IRS years to process a small business tax credit. 1M+ small business owners who filed for the Employee Retention Credit are stuck in backlog or waiting on payment for their claims. Tell the IRS to lift the moratorium now.
