George Santos was from today, which is great. He is only the 6th member to ever be expelled. However I think that it is important to point out that more than HALF of wanted to keep in in office. There is a laundry list of reasons he was expelled - including but not limited to:
Campaign finance violations:
- Misrepresenting his financial background: Santos fabricated extensive details about his education, employment history, and wealth.
- Misusing campaign funds: He allegedly used campaign funds for personal expenses such as rent, travel, and dining.
- Concealing the source of donations: He received large donations from unknown sources and failed to properly disclose them on campaign finance reports.
Ethics violations:
- Making false statements to Congress: He lied about his personal and professional life under oath to the House Ethics Committee.
- Abusing his position: He used his office for personal gain and engaged in improper financial transactions.
- Bringing discredit upon the House: His actions caused significant damage to the reputation of the House of Representatives.
Criminal charges:
- Wire fraud and money laundering: He was indicted by the Department of Justice on 23 counts of wire fraud, money laundering, and campaign finance violations.
Loss of public trust:
His repeated lies and unethical behavior eroded public trust in his ability to serve as a representative.
With all this (and more) 112 republicans voted to KEEP HIM IN OFFICE. How can the be taken seriously when more than half of them back someone like this.

It's been an exciting first half... too exciting for my tastes. Let go ! 🐬🐬🐬

That moment when you are taking a shower and the drain clogs and the water backs up and gets cloudy from soap and shampoo and "something touches your foot"...

While I am very happy for the 3-0 start AND the amazing performance they put on today, I won't really get hopeful until we are 9-0.

Rufus is sleeping the sleep of the dead. I scratch his butt, no reaction. I leave the room, no reaction. I kick his tail on the way back to my chair, no reaction. But god forbid I open my breakfast...

Rufus: I wanna go outside.
Me: No, it's raining.
Rufus: I wanna go outside.
Me: No, it's raining.
Rufus: I wanna go outside.
Me: No, it's raining.
Rufus: I wanna go outside.
Me: (giving in) FINE!
Rufus: (looks at me) ...why would you try to make me go out there???
