US Congress expels Republican legislator George Santos – El Sol de México

This Friday, the United States House of Representatives expelled controversial Republican legislator George Santos, who had built his political career on lies and alleged crimes, on the third attempt.

Santos was expelled with 311 votes in favor and 114 against, with many of his Republican colleagues joining the Democrats to achieve the necessary two-thirds that forced his departure from Congress.

It is the sixth expulsion of a legislator in the 230-year history of the US Congress, so it is an exceptional measure that in Santos’ case was unprecedented as he had not been convicted of any crime.
