Is George Santos Expelled From Office Yet? Live Updates


As I noted earlier this week, expulsions in Congress are very rare, likely due to the two-thirds majority vote required for them to be successful. If the vote against Santos were to meet that bar on Friday, he would join an infamous club:

Only five members of the House have been expelled in the history of the chamber, with the bulk of those expulsions occurring during the Civil War. The most recent House members to be forced from office were Congressman Michael “Ozzie” Myers of Pennsylvania in 1980, who was implicated in the FBI’s Abscam sting, and Congressman James Traficant of Ohio, who was convicted of bribery in 2002.
