In a move resonating all the way to Brevard County, the Chairman of the House Ethics Committee, Rep. Michael Guest, R-Miss., has announced plans to seek the expulsion of Rep. George Santos, R-N.Y., from Congress. This development follows a thorough investigation into Santos’ conduct.
“The evidence is clear and compelling enough to demand action,” stated Rep. Guest’s office to Fox News Digital. His decision to propose an expulsion resolution is set to be a significant point of discussion during the pro forma session at 9:00 am tomorrow.
A detailed eight-page report by the ethics panel accuses Santos of misusing campaign funds for personal purposes and engaging in fraudulent conduct. These allegations have sparked interest in Brevard County, given the region’s keen focus on maintaining integrity in political representation.
The filing of the resolution by Guest on Friday signals a forthcoming vote on Santos’ future in the House, expected to take place after lawmakers return from the Thanksgiving break on Nov. 28. This matter holds particular interest for the residents of Brevard County, as it highlights the critical importance of ethical standards in political leadership.
Residents and officials in Brevard County are closely following these developments. While running for Congress, Santos was working for Harbor City Capital, a Melbourne-based “investment firm” that was shut down by the Securities and Exchange Commission as being nothing more than a Ponzi scheme. Federal regulators say the company defrauded investors of at least $4.5 million.
