A New York Republican jump-started the process to expel his embattled colleague, Rep. George Santos (R‑NY), from the House, teeing up a likely vote on Thursday.
Rep. Anthony D’Esposito (R‑NY) noticed a motion to expel Santos as privileged on Tuesday night, which means the House will now have two legislative days to take a vote. The resolution was originally filed by House Ethics Committee Chairman Michael Guest (R‑MS) nearly two weeks ago, but D’Esposito’s move to expedite the process comes hours after two House Democrats filed their own privileged resolution to oust Santos.

However, the motion filed by Guest and noticed as privileged by D’Esposito will ultimately be the measure the House will vote on to expel Santos.
The push to oust Santos has been led by New York Republicans and especially D’Esposito, who filed a motion earlier this year to oust him from office, which failed.
