Malliotakis Statement on the Expulsion of George Santos
(WASHINGTON, DC) – Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11) released the following statement regarding her vote in favor of expelling Rep. George Santos:
“Earlier this year, the House requested the Ethics Committee conduct an investigation into the allegations against George Santos; they issued 38 subpoenas, interviewed 40 witnesses, and reviewed 170,000 pages of documents.
“Based on the evidence produced by their thorough investigation, it’s crystal clear that he improperly used campaign donations to purchase luxury goods, botox, make OnlyFans payments, and even committed credit card fraud against some members of this body and their families.
“His actions are unbecoming of a Member of Congress and he has been nothing but a stain on our institution who lost the trust of both his constituents and colleagues.”
George Santos is the sixth member and first Republican in Congressional history to be expelled from Congress. You can review the Ethics Committee findings HERE.
