Rep. George Santos will not run for reelection following a damning report from the House Ethics Committee, Santos told Semafor. The committee released a damning report of a month-long investigation into Santos, who has been indicted for fraud, credit card theft, and lying to the FEC, among other charges.
The report reignited calls for Santos’ resignation, especially from his Republican colleagues who recently introduced an unsuccessful expulsion resolution.
“George Santos should end this farce and resign immediately,” Rep. Mike Lawer, R-N.Y. told Semafor. “If he refuses, he must be removed from Congress. His conduct is not only unbecoming and embarrassing, it is criminal. He is unfit to serve and if he had any dignity, he would resign today.”
