The GOP just can’t seem to quit Kitara! And they said they don’t like drag queens.

Protecting a narrow, four-vote majority, Republican leaders in the House are making clear that they intend to let the legal process play out with New York Rep. George Santos before they take steps to force his resignation or expel him.
Republican leaders, who for months have faced mounting questions about Santos after most of his campaign biography was exposed as a lie, were unmoved and brushed aside calls — including from some colleagues — that they take immediate action to push Santos out of Congress.
“In America, there’s a presumption of innocence. But they’re serious charges. He’s going to have to go through the legal process,” said House Majority Leader Steve Scalise of Louisiana. Scalise was seconded by Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York, the No. 3 House Republican, who sidestepped the question of whether Santos should resign.”
Meanwhile, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said he would not support lying Long Island Rep. George Santos in his re-election bid . McCarthy also implied in a interview with CNN that Santos should consider dropping out of the 2024 race while he deals with the court case and his tattered reputation.
“Santos has a lot going on. I think he has other things to focus on in his life other than running for re-election.” When asked if he would call on Santos to resign as NY-03’s representative if the House Ethics panel rules that he broke the law, McCarthy succinctly responded: “Yes.”
If Santos were a Democrat the GOP would be losing their minds and the Democratic Party would have ousted him a long time ago.
