George Santos, a Republican liar, was kicked out of Congress in an extraordinary vote after his long history of lying was exposed and he faced several criminal accusations.
After taking donor funds to spend on OnlyFans and Botox, the Long Island senator fled Capitol Hill and evaded reporters. According to the Daily Mail, he is only the sixth House member in history to be kicked out.
Republicans joined Democrats in eliminating the fabulist liar in a historic vote on Friday, 311 to 114.
Santos raced off the House floor just minutes before the fateful vote. He swiftly warned journalists that the House had "set a new dangerous precedent for themselves."
Faced with a daunting vote total, serial fabulist George Santos, 35, remained stubborn until the end, declaring that he would quit Congress if it was "God's will."
His lies include fabricating familial ties to the Holocaust, his mother being murdered on 9/11, working on Wall Street, recovering from a brain tumour, being of Ukrainian-Jewish descent, and starting a charity.
It is the sixth time in Congress's history that a member has been voted out. It was also the first time a member was expelled without a conviction or for siding with the Confederacy during the Civil War.
Santos escaped expulsion last month when 31 Democrats and the majority of Republicans decided to keep him, with many indicating that they would rather wait for the release of an Ethics Committee investigation documenting his wrongdoings. A two-thirds vote in the House is required to expel a sitting member of Congress.
He improperly moved campaign funds to pay for Botox treatments, Hermes bags, OnlyFans purchases, and casino cash withdrawals, according to the devastating ethics report.
