NY War Room: 60 Days After Ethics Committee Referral, Will Nick LaLota Vote to Hold Santos Accountable?

July 17, 2023

New York, NY – Sixty days after House Republicans said there would be a decision on Rep. George Santos by the Ethics Committee and as House Democrats prepare to hold serial fraudster George Santos accountable, the question remains. Will Nick LaLota vote to hold Santos accountable?

Vulnerable Republican Nick LaLota was the first House Republican to call for Santos to be investigated. He called Santos “disgraceful, dishonorable, and unworthy of the office” and said, “his antics like showing a white power sign on the House floor” have no place in our country. Yet, when given the opportunity LaLota went back on his word and chose to side with Santos by voting against the measure to expel him from office.

“Nick LaLota continues to make empty promises to New Yorkers while protecting serial liar George Santos,” said HMP New York Press Secretary Alisha Heng. “New Yorkers will hold them accountable, and HMP will ensure that they are voted out of office in 2024.”
