New York Republican sets wheels in motion to expel George Santos from House

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.
