House frees itself from George Santos: Washington Photos of the Week

House mem­bers jet­ti­soned indict­ed New York GOP Rep. George San­tos from the Capi­tol on Fri­day with a rare expul­sion vote that had only been suc­cess­ful­ly deployed six times in U.S. his­to­ry.
But days before he was kicked out of his job for ram­pant alle­ga­tions of ethics vio­la­tions and crim­i­nal fraud, a giant inflat­able San­tos was on the loose.

MoveOn Polit­i­cal Action, a lib­er­al group, rolled out a 15-foot bal­loon of San­tos wear­ing a suit and tie read­ing “full of lies.” The polit­i­cal stunt was to urge law­mak­ers to kick out the fresh­man law­mak­er. Yet on the blus­tery Tues­day, the car­toon San­tos broke free and tum­bled around the Capi­tol.
