House Ethics chairman files resolution to expel Rep. George Santos from Congress

The House Ethics Committee Chairman, Michael Guest, has filed a resolution seeking to expel Rep. George Santos from Congress. The resolution comes after the committee released a report stating that there is "substantial evidence" that Santos violated federal criminal laws, including using campaign funds for personal purposes and filing false campaign reports. The report detailed Santos' spending at luxury stores, on an Airbnb, Botox treatments, and on a subscription-based website often used for pornography. The resolution filed by Guest states that Santos is "not fit to serve" due to his "egregious violations." Santos' office has not yet responded to the resolution. The earliest a vote on the expulsion can be held is the week after Thanksgiving. Santos had already announced that he will not seek re-election next year. Earlier this month, Santos survived an expulsion vote in Congress, but a two-thirds majority is required to remove a member from the House.
