Lori Trahan Slams Expelled Congressman George Santos

December 1, 2023

U.S. Representative Lori Trahan (D-Westford) blasted now-former U.S. Representative George Santos (R-New York) as the House voted 311-114 to expel him from Congress on Friday.

The freshman Congressman, who faces many ethics violations for a history of lying about his background and misusing donor funds, became the sixth Congressman ever to be expelled.

Trahan was among the 311 who voted to expel Santos.

Here is what she said in a press release issued by her office:

 

Today, I joined a bipartisan majority of my colleagues to expel George Santos from the House of Representatives. The Ethics Committee report is damning proof that George Santos is a serial fraudster who has consistently and shamelessly put his own personal, political, and financial interests ahead of the hardworking Americans he represents.

As public servants, we ask the American people to place their trust in us every day, and it is shameful that Santos’s never-ending list of lies and criminal conduct deteriorated that trust. Families in New York’s Third District simply deserve better than George Santos, and now they’ll have the opportunity to elect someone else. With this requisite, long overdue step behind us, it’s my hope the House can get back to the work that the American people sent us here to do.

 

Santos was the first openly homosexual Republican to serve in Congress.

 

New to NewBostonPost? Conservative media is hard to find in Massachusetts. But you’ve found it. Now dip your toe in the water for two bucks — $2 for two months. And join the real revolution.
