I hope the democrats, all of them, vote to not expel him.

Make every republican vote for it if they want him gone.

That would be funny, but they don't want him gone. He's got an AR-15 pin and everything.

So Johnson talks all this game about hating gay people but doesn't want to kick one out of congress?

She's a witch! Burn her!

Seriously. Can we burn him in the DC Mall, on a pyre in front of the Lincoln Memorial?

George Santos appealed to democratic norms on Thursday in a last-ditch effort to resist an expected vote to expel him from the US House of Representatives, describing efforts to remove him as "bullying" and warning that "the undoing of a lot of members of this body" would follow.

The embattled Republican congressman, who is facing a third effort to expel him from Congress with a House vote due on Friday, told reporters outside the US Capitol in Washington DC that it was "an unfortunate circumstance to watch Congress waste the American people's time over and over again on something that is in the power of the people, not the power of Congress".


This guy is just silly, but can you imagine how dangerous he would be had he been born really rich?

I heard he went on a 3 hour rant and spilled all of their dirty secrets.

The democrats need to make them shut him up.

Tony D will keep his seat. Too many will express a willingness to wait until he is convicted in court, and that is not unreasonable. More importantly, the GOP needs every vote in the House. Some in the GOP will vote to expel Tony, but not enough to actually show him the door ...

This isn't true.

I'd wager that zero bills in the house have passed by 1 vote.

Further, not a god damned thing they pass is making it through the Senate.

They don't need anything from him. That's a fact.

I hope they keep him. It looks good on them.

As I recall House members serve two year terms of office so if the Republicans are too cowardly to kick him out of Congress, I'm pretty sure the voters will do it for them. I hope a Democrat gets elected to his seat and makes the sitting Republicans look pathetic, which they absolutely are.

Yer, OUT!

This expulsion will give him time to prepare for his trial and federal prison term.

Born rich and silly like "Dan Goldman". Or stupid and incoherent like eyes always closed Al Green, or know nothing Maxine Waters. These people get elected but why again? It can never be based on their intellectual accomplishment. They and the obessive clueless racism of constituents are why our country is falling off the abyss.

Georgie, we hardly knew ye.

Like a short lived character on a bad TV sitcom.

listened to a little of this and one demoflap said something hilarious.

he accused this freak of using campaign and tax money for personal gain.

vote every congressman out that does this today.

monday there will be 400 of the 435 missing.

that being said....this guy's got to go.

get him a job as guest co-host on the Drew Barrynore show.....somewhere he won't be seen or heard from again.**

** sounds like a good place for most of you.

I imagine it would be a lot easier if Americans would stop voting psycho criminals in. It would be nice if the people would get rid of about 300 more of the corrupt hypocrites, next year. Lots of luck.
