George Santos reacted to his expulsion by fleeing the Capitol:
The final vote was 311-114-2. 105 House Republicans voted to expel Santos, even though the House leadership voted against it. Two Democrats also voted against expelling Santos, but they likely did so only because Santos has yet to be criminally convicted.
The George Santos ride has to come to an end. It should have never taken this long for Santos to be expelled. House Republicans, including Speaker Kevin McCarthy, knew about Santos’s criminality and corruption before the beginning of the current Congress.
Santos should have never been seated, but Republicans put their slim majority ahead of their duty to the House and to the nation.
George Santos is gone, and his next stop is likely federal prison.
