George Santos Joins Cameo After Being Expelled From Congress: Live

George Santos expelled from US House of Representatives following landslide vote

Former Congressman George Santos sells videos on Cameo, the site where celebrities offer short greetings for a fee.

Mr. Santos was expelled from the House on Friday after more than a hundred Republicans joined nearly all Democrats in voting to remove him from the House.

The 35-year-old describes himself as a “former congressional icon” on the site, where he charges $150 per video.

Options to request include holiday messages, birthday wishes, gossip, a pep talk, a roast, or advice.

Mr. Santos joined only a handful of lawmakers ever ousted from office, following a damning 56-page report from the House Ethics Committee that presented “substantial evidence” that Mr. Santos had violated federal law.

A two-thirds majority was needed to expel Mr Santos – 311 members supported his ouster while 114 voted against and two members voted present. The entire GOP leadership opposed the removal.

Over the weekend, the disgraced former congressman was mercilessly parodied on Saturday Night Live with Bowen Yang playing it at a press conference on the steps of the Capitol before singing a lament to the tune of “Candle in the Wind.”

After Santos, McCarthy limps toward possible exit from Congress

Former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy was third in line for speaker a few months ago. Soon he may not be in Washington at all.

The California congressman endured a difficult nine months leading a fractured and bitter Republican caucus, a group that was perhaps destined to sideline him from the start. Following a last-minute deal with Democrats to avoid a government shutdown in October, he was unceremoniously ousted by one of his most polarizing foes: Florida’s Matt Gaetz, head of a group of disaffected Republicans with their own complaints about Mr. McCarthy’s leadership.

Botox, OnlyFans and a trip to the Hamptons

The commission’s lengthy report released in early November said there was credible evidence that the Republican misappropriated campaign funds for a wide range of personal expenses, committed fraud and misled the Federal Election Commission (FEC).

It was the damning end to a months-long investigation that had until then been Mr. Santos’s golden ticket to surviving repeated efforts by his fellow lawmakers – including Republicans in his own state – to expel from Congress.

Lawmakers had attempted to remove him just weeks before the report was released — Mr. Santos was spared that time by colleagues who did not want to set a precedent by prejudging a member under investigation by the House. ethics commission. The New York congressman was already facing numerous criminal charges in New York in a Justice Department indictment.

Let’s delve into the ethics committee’s final report, which was forwarded to the Justice Department and marked the beginning of the end of Mr. Santos’ political career.
