A group of House GOP lawmakers from New York will introduce a resolution to expel embattled congressman Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y) from Congress.
“Today, I’ll be introducing an expulsion resolution to rid the People’s House of fraudster George Santos,” Rep. Anthony D’Esposito, R-N.Y., said in a post on the Twitter.
The other freshman Republicans from New York: Reps. Nick LaLota, Mike Lawler, Marc Molinaro, Nick Langworthy and Brandon Williams, are co-sponsoring the resolution.
The move comes one day after Santos was hit with ten new criminal charges in a superseding indictment alleging that he committed identity theft, fraud and other offenses.
“If they want to be judge, jury and arbitrator of the whole God damn thing let them do it,” Santos said in response to the resolution to oust him. “They just want to silence the people of the 3rd congressional district.”
Removing Santos from Congress would require a two-thirds vote of the entire House.
