Rep. George Santos Was Finally Expelled From Congress For A Level Of Corruption That Even The Disgraced, Traitor-To-Democracy Republican Party Could No longer Support. Despite The Party’s Continued Alliance With The Lying, Fraudulent, Sex Abusing, And Law Breaking Donald Trump, The Ousting Of Santos Is A Small Ray Of Hope That Republicans May Re-Discover Their Morality And Abandon Voting For Unfit Con Men. Unfortunately, In The Meantime, The Damage Being Done To Our Country Is Devastating.

stealing campaign donors’ identities and racking up thousands of dollars in unauthorized charges on their credit cards to benefit his campaign and himself personally.
falsifying campaign finance reports in order to hit fundraising benchmarks and bolster his campaign, while falsely claiming he had loaned his campaign $500,000.
Santos is echoing Trump’s pattern of vengeance. He has announced he will retaliate against some of the Republican members of the House who supported his expulsion. He announced he will file ethics complaints against colleagues for unethical professional and personal behaviors.
Trump allies and supporters should ask themselves, “What would they want the government to do if Joe Biden did all that Trump has done? They should also imagine what it would be like if a Democratic president out for retribution against Republicans became president in an autocratic America. Without a strong Constitution and a commitment to the rule of law, individual freedoms, national security, and election integrity will be lost. Trump is campaigning to weaken the Constitution, which would eliminate the separation of powers, allow for the church to control national policy, and expand the influence of big donors over elected officials.
