The House Ethics Committee chair plans to file an expulsion resolution against Rep. George Santos, R-N.Y., following a damning report accusing him of using campaign funds for personal purposes and engaging in fraudulent conduct.

The report detailed substantial campaign fund expenditures at luxury stores and spas, as well as allegations of knowingly filing false reports.

“Chairman Guest feels that the evidence uncovered in the Committee’s investigation is more than sufficient to warrant punishment, and that the most appropriate punishment is expulsion,” Republican Mississippi Rep. Michael Guest’s office stated. (Trending: Judge Issue Major Ruling On Transgender Procedures For Kids)

“So, separate from the Committee process and his role as Chairman, he plans to file an expulsion resolution during tomorrow’s 9:00 am pro forma session.”

Santos responded by announcing he won’t seek re-election and accused the Ethics Committee of bias.

Earlier attempts to expel him failed, but a new resolution is expected after Thanksgiving.

“If there was a single ounce of ETHICS in the ‘Ethics committee’, they would have not released this biased report. The Committee went to extraordinary lengths to smear myself and my legal team about me not being forthcoming (My legal bills suggest otherwise),” Santos posted.

“It is a disgusting politicized smear that shows the depths of how low our federal government has sunk. Everyone who participated in this grave miscarriage of Justice should all be ashamed of themselves.”
