Following the expulsion of Congressman George Santos from the House of Representatives, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington President Noah Bookbinder released the following statement:

“George Santos’s pattern of unethical and illegal conduct is shocking and continues to escalate. Expulsion from Congress was appropriate and overdue. He should have resigned and saved Congress all this trouble. Now he’ll be remembered as only the third member of Congress since the Civil War to be expelled from Congress.”
