Even George Santos Thinks That He Is Going To Be Expelled

Last updated on December 4th, 2023 at 09:22 am

Santos said as he was leaving the House floor:

Those looking to expel Santos are feeling very good about their odds of success, but the truth is that no one knows for certain what is going to happen.

House Republican leadership does not support expelling Santos because of the precedent it would set, but will that be enough.

It can be argued that George Santos is an unprecedented situation. Santos is the first known member to have obtained their seat by fraudulent means. Santos was also found by the Ethics Committee to have committed crimes against the House of Representatives.

The historical precedent has been that a member is not expelled from the House until after they are criminally convicted, but since George Santos obtained his seat through fraud, it is unclear if the previous precedent is applicable.

Republican leadership also does not want Santos expelled, his departure will reduce their majority to three seats.

It is expected that Democrats will win any special election to fill the remainder of the Santos term.

George Santos thinks that he is toast, but the vote will still likely be close, and either outcome is bad for Republicans.
