The Santos Censuring Saga
Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.) made it clear to House colleagues Tuesday that he will not resign his seat, choosing instead to face an expulsion vote this week which he said “undermines and underscores the precedent we’ve had in this chamber.”
Santos is set to face a third expulsion attempt this week after Rep. Robert Garcia (D-Calif.) introduced a privileged resolution on the House floor Tuesday to advance a vote on the matter
The congressman survived two previous attempts at expulsion, including a vote earlier this month.
In an X Spaces talk Friday, Santos said he will likely be expelled if the measure is voted on.
“I know I’m going to get expelled when this expulsion resolution goes to the floor,” Santos said. “I’ve done the math over and over, and it doesn’t look really good.”
Santos ended his floor speech by doubling down on his position.
“To set the record straight and put this in the record, I will not be resigning,” he said
GOP Rep. Clay Higgins, a Freedom Caucus member, weighs in on the Santos expulsion vote, raising “serious concerns” about how case is being handled and saying he will oppose removing hiM.
