THE MORNING RANT: Conservative, Inc. and The Conservative Case for Removing Statues of Our Founding Fathers | Main | Washington Post "Workers" Brace for Layoffs

89 Republicans Join Democrats to Expel George Santos from Congress; Republicans Also Refuse to Hold Vote to Expel Fire-Alarm-Puller and Insurrectionist Jamaal Bowman

The vote is just finishing up.

It took a two-thirds vote to expel him, so all the Republicans had to do was not give enough votes to the minority of Democrats in the House to get to two thirds.

From CNN:

The House voted to expel indicted GOP Rep. George Santos over ethics violations, making him only the sixth lawmaker ever to be kicked out of the chamber. The resolution passed with a tally of 311-114, with 105 Republicans voting in favor. All four top House GOP leaders voted to keep Santos in Congress.

George Santos is being expelled because he lied and committed some minor crimes. In the past. Not as a Congressman.

Jamaal Bowman also lied and committed crime -- he pled guilty to falsely pulling the fire alarm, and did so as a Congressman, to block an act of Congress (which we all now is insurrection).

But few Republicans have the guts to vote to expel him.

Now that Santos has been expelled, that resolution will not move forward.

They won't expel Swalwell, Schiff, Omar, Tlaib, Bowman for actual treason but they'll expel Santos. This is why we lose. I'm so sick of cowardly and spineless Republicans!!!!

Republicans also voted, of course, to strip Santos' constituents of any Representation in Congress. They elected Santos as part of a general repudiation of Democrat politicians in New York State. But now they'll have no Representative at all, at least until Kathy Hochul schedules a special election, which of course she can take months and months and months to do.

(Representatives cannot be appointed or replaced by a governor. They can only be elected by the people. But state laws vary as to how long one can dally in calling a special election.)

Good work, Republicans.

With your every word and deed you demonstrate anew the necessity of your complete repudiation and abandonment.
