NY War Room: Too Little, Too Late – New York Republicans Move to Expel Santos After Protecting Him For Months
October 12, 2023
New York, NY – Months after vulnerable New York Republicans Nick LaLota, Anthony D’Esposito, Mike Lawler, Marc Molinaro, and Brandon Williams voted to protect criminally indicted fraudster George Santos, they have finally attempted to take action by filing a resolution to expel Santos this week.
However, every single New York Republican rejected a motion to expel Santos when it was previously brought to the House floor five months ago in May, even after joining calls for his removal.
“Nick LaLota, Anthony D’Esposito, Mike Lawler, Marc Molinaro, and Brandon Williams only filed this resolution to save themselves after realizing how much Santos is damaging their re-election chances,” HMP NY Press Secretary Alisha Heng said. “Make no mistake, these cowardly New York Republicans continue to be in lockstep with their party and push an extremist agenda.”
