OUTRAGEOUS: He’s Running for Congress Again?!

(TheProudRepublic.com) – In an upsetting turn of events that may not seem a good addition for the Republican Party and its representatives in Congress, expelled Republican Representative George Santos declared his intention to challenge Representative Nick LaLota for the congressional seat in New York’s First District.

While attending Biden’s State of the Union address, Santos, who had been expelled from the House and indicted for campaign finance fraud and embezzlement, criticized Biden and said that “[h]e saw a weak, frail man who delivered spin and lies to Americans from inside the chambers.”

He also asserted, “I have made several personal sacrifices in the name of serving the American people. My promise is that I will never back down because of my love for this country.”

Despite being expelled following a scathing House ethics report and a 311-114 vote for his removal, Santo, decked out in distinctive silver shoes and a studded collar, surprisingly attended Biden’s speech to the nation.

Addressing reporters, he shared his bipartisan interactions with colleagues and sensed a different atmosphere in Congress since his departure. The 35-year-old representative expressed uncertainty about his future attendance but affirmed his potential return, stating, “I don’t put anything past my desire to run for office again.”

As a former member not convicted of a felony, Santos retains access to the House floor.

However, when he was banned, he expressed contempt for staying, declaring, “Why would I want to stay here? To hell with this place,” as per CNN.

During a previous State of the Union Address (SOTU), Santos conflicted with Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah), who said he did not belong there.

Facing federal fraud charges, which included theft of donor IDs and unauthorized credit card charges, Santos pleaded not guilty. He stands as the sixth member of Congress to be expelled, distinguished as the only one ousted without being criminally convicted.
