    I think Santos is a terrible person who never should have been elected in the first place.  But...I think expulsions should only be for those convicted, not accused.  Obviously he'll be convicted.   And at that point he should have been expelled, not before.  Of course, he clearly has no integrity.   Because if he did he would have resigned.

    Just surprised Santos lasted this long which was only due to both parties not researching his background (Republicans for letting him run and Democrats for not using his background against him in the election), and Bipartisan House support of expulsion processes.

     Highly suspect he has Russian backing given his background.

     Santos, openly gay as a Brazilian drag queen, married a woman to immigrate to the U.S, and then ran for and won a Congressional seat on multiple false claims (US born, Jewish heritage, colleges attended, companies worked for, broadway plays produced, business deals, etc).

      Amazingly they let Santos on the Small Business Committee running PPP loan program considering he was involved with a company being investigated for running a Ponzi scheme, and people and companies with Russian ties documented in the Mueller Report.

      I was not previously aware of his Russian ties, nor the Ponzi scheme, or ties to DJT which appear in the Mueller probe. Normally I'm not a fan of NY Post or CIS but they both do a great job on the gossip & dirt, which is confirmed by Reuters, a more reliable source.

      "A filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission reportedly showed that Intrater put hundreds of thousands of dollars into Harbor City Capital, the Florida-based investment firm where Santos worked for more than a year — and which is under investigation for allegedly running a Ponzi scheme."

      "Intrater’s investment firm Columbus Nova is closely tied to Vekselberg, whose conglomerate was the business’ largest client as recently as 2018, when he was sanctioned by the Treasury Department, according to the Washington Post."

      "Intrater’s 2016 and 2017 contacts with former Donald Trump lawyer and “fixer” Michael Cohen were investigated during Robert Mueller’s probe of alleged links between the former president’s campaign and the Kremlin, but the special counsel did not accuse Intrater of impropriety."

      "Intrater and Cohen — who pleaded guilty in 2018 to tax evasion and campaign finance law violations — exchanged hundreds of texts and calls, and the financier’s company paid Cohen to flag business deals, records examined by the outlet showed."

      "Santos, 34, also said Columbus Nova was a “client” of his during a Harbor City Zoom call in 2020, when the aspiring politician was tasked with finding New York investors, the outlet reported."

      "Santos signed a deal with Brazilian prosecutors that he would confess and agree to pay almost $5,000 in fines and restitution in exchange for dropping the charges"

      "Brazilian prosecutors alleged he used a fake name and a stolen checkbook to buy goods, including tennis shoes, in a store in Niterói. He was formally charged in 2011 but authorities lost track of Santos until he became a U.S. congressman in 2022."

     "Santos, once an alien, married the lady, presumably a U.S. citizen, so that he could become a citizen, and that only because of this marriage was he able to run for the House. Their marriage took place on August 2, 2012, in Manhattan and can be verified in the city’s files."

    "Innocent until proven guilty" is the rulle of law in this country! Unless that takes too long apparently. The ethics committee cannot issue a legal ruling of guilty. That can only be achieved by the Judicial system.

    I'm certainly no defender of Santos, but why is Bob Menendez allowed to stay on? Why is the citizen with 91 felony indictments allowed to be on the ballot for president?

    So, Innocent until proven guilty for some but not others.

    This is totally non-related but it's so asinine I thought it bears mention: Republican senators said today at four and government or spying on Americans cell phones. If there's spying on my cell phone they must be bored out of their Skulls 💀. LOL Hey Senator's how about you stop talking about the low hanging fruit and start talking about global warming Or the slaughter of our children in their own schools by AR 15's or some other issue of importance.

    What you get with republicans

    santos, graham, tuberville, cruz, hawley, jordan, kennedy, trump, gaetz ... you can add more

    A deluge of violent messages: How a surge in threats to public officials could disrupt American democracy

    Trump and his allies are threatening retribution against the press. Their menacing words should not be ignored

    no womens rights - A Texas judge ruled that a pregnant woman who sued the state seeking an abortion can legally terminate her pregnancy

    dictatorship, total discord, demolition of institutions, dysfunction, destruction of relationships & treaties 

    if you thing the trump in power years were bad ... if trump and republicans are in power - you aint seen anything yet .... zomby rule and all the wackos will be in charge of everything 

    shame on congress

    shame on scotus / judiciary 

    for not stopping all this nonsense when they could!

    I just have to say this today the house censored Jamall Bodewin for pulling a fire alarm but they could care less the Donald Trump tried to overthrow democracy, was found guilty of sexual deviance, His company was found guilty of fraudulent practices and it's not the first time he's been brought up on charges of sexual deviance bribery and campaign violations. It's utterly astounding what in the hell is wrong with the Republican party!

    I am shocked that the NY voters elected him in the first place!  He was pathetic from the beginning.  And yet  Trumpers did not want to kick him out of Congress considering his lies, displayed ignorance, and all. Again, the GOP made it very clear, they do not care about our country and certainly our future.  All they care about is maintaining their slim majority.  The confirms once again how low Congress has stooped and how voters do not know their candidates.

    The things that he has done have been considered and he has been removed according to the rules. The only thing we all need to do now is to stop giving him the attention he craves. No media reporting on anything other than his trials for any criminal acts he has done that he can be convicted of.

    This should be the same for DT just stop giving him the attention he craves and let him fade into the sunset.

    Need a laugh?  Like Political Humor? 
    Well, anyway, I am so sure many of you have been so very concerned about the fate of Expelled Congress-they/them George Anthony Devolder Kitara Ravache Santos.

    Well, it seems the day of or maybe the day after expulsion Mx Santos joined Cameo.(1) A Santos video was going for $200 for a 30-60 second personalized video as of last night. Today he's not available. He might be preparing for court but who knows🤷🏻 What a hustler! 😆

    See a sample greeting at

    He's just your average Republican and speaking of that, Why would evangelicals feel Trump is like a ‘mercenary’ for their beliefs?

    The question really should be why wouldn't they, he's a convicted sexual deviant, his corporation has been convicted of business fraud, he paid $100,000 for a porn stars silence, stormy Daniels. And then did it again for Playboy playmate. He has everything in common with in the evangelicals. At least they must think so or they wouldn't support him. Ahhhh Good old Bible thumping Christians. I'm sure if Jesus can see it he's rolling over in his grave.
