Republican lawmaker Anthony D’Esposito introduces resolution to expel George Santos

The Republican lawmaker Anthony D’Esposito has issued a resolution to expel George Santos from the House of Representatives.

Presenting his request to the House on Thursday 26 October, D’Esposito pointed at Santos’s “history of misrepresenting his and his family's connections to major events, including the Holocaust, 9/11 terrorist attacks, and the Pulse nightclub shooting” and his indictment as one of the motives for his expulsion from the House,

The Justice Department unsealed a 13-count federal indictment charging Mr Santos with seven counts of wire fraud, three counts of money laundering, one count of theft of public funds, and two counts of making materially false statements to the House of Representatives, on 10 May 2023.
