Was there any doubt about the outcome? Santos is the party’s useful “only gay in the village” idiot. Or something.
Via CBS News:
House Republicans on Wednesday blocked a Democratic resolution that would expel GOP Rep. George Santos from Congress, instead voting to refer the matter to a committee while several investigations into his conduct continue.
On Tuesday, Democratic Rep. Robert Garcia of California introduced a measure to expel Santos from the House as a “privileged” resolution, fast-tracking its consideration under House rules.
Republicans moved Wednesday to refer the bill to the House Ethics Committee, which opened a formal probe into Santos in March. That vote, which required a simple majority, succeeded along party lines by a margin of 221 to 204. Seven Democrats voted present.

Santos communications director Naysa Woomer suddenly resigned on Wednesday, Scripps News has learned. The departure of Woomer, a prominent Republican communications adviser, this is the latest in a string of bad news for Santos, who was indicted on 13 counts, including fraud and money laundering. Woomer said of the departure — appearing to direct the comment toward Santos — “Unfortunately, you never took one point of professional advice given.”
The Republican Party is DEAD and beginning to reek of it.
