Former Representative George Santos, following his dramatic expulsion from the House late last week, has targeted four colleagues as potential recipients of ethics complaints.

Over the weekend, Santos went on a lengthy social media tirade in which he announced his intention to exact revenge on his way out the door of Congress.

That revenge will take place in the form of ethics complaints, though they will have to be filed as a non-member.

The four lawmakers he is seeking to expose are Republican Reps. Mike Lawler, Nick LaLota, Nicole Malliotakis, each from New York like himself, as well as Democratic Rep. Robert Menendez (NJ).

Malliotakis, the first to raise his ire, was accused by Santos of having improperly benefited from insider knowledge on stock trades.

Will Santos Bring Down More Lawmakers Following Expulsion?

Look, it’s perfectly justifiable to feel a little dirty in relishing anything Santos does. His expulsion may full-well have been warranted. He struggles with the truth. And he’s a bit slimy.

But the fact that he is seeking to burn down the institution on his way out the door is a borderline glorious display.

Next up on the ethics complaint train is Lawler, who Santos accused of “questionable campaign finance violations.”

Following that X posting, Congressman Lalota faced the wrath, with Santos accusing him of being paid for a no-show job while actually working to attain his Juris Doctor at Hofstra.

The disgraced lawmaker finally turned his attention to Menendez, son of embattled Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ), demanding the ethics committee look into any potential links to his father’s alleged corrupt actions.

Senator Menenedez has been indicted on bribery charges. He and his wife allegedly received bribes including cash, gold, luxury vehicles and vacations, mortgage payments and other forms of compensation, according to prosecutors.

A search of the senator’s home yielded more than $480,000 in cash – some of it in envelopes stuffed into a jacket with his name on it – gold bars, and a Mercedes.

A new report indicates at least four of the gold bars located in Menendez Srs. home have been linked to a 2013 robbery.

Santos Found A New Line Of Work – Cameo Celebrity

Again, you don’t have to be a fan of Santos to not take some level of joy away as he drags things down with him along the way after his expulsion.

He currently stands as another prime example of how Republcians in Congress are always willing to side with Democrats and then claim that they’re the party that takes the high road.

You never see reports where some Democrats sided with Republicans to punish one of their own. It is always in the reverse.

Some could argue Santos is the hero we need in this moment. The people on the following list, however, hey’re part of the problem.

Representative Jamaal Bowman (D-NY)? He hasn’t faced expulsion. He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor for causing a false fire alarm, which he did with the express intent (as proven by video) of interfering in official government proceedings.

Not only did he not face expulsion, but the House Ethics Committee has refused to investigate his actions.

Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI)? She’s frequently been accused of anti-Semitism and has supported Palestinian terrorism. She flies a Palestinian flag outside her office. She was behind a recent disturbance at the Cannon House Office Building. When is her expulsion going into effect?

Republicans somehow only find their intestinal fortitude when it comes to taking down their own. Democrats could watch one of their party members shoot somebody in the middle of the street and they would defend them to the bitter end.

Santos, it has been reported, has landed a new gig following his expulsion.

He’s selling messages on Cameo, the celebrity and influencer video app, where a bio describes him as a “former Congressional ‘icon’!”

Santos got the boot after being hit with 13 federal charges including wire fraud, money laundering, theft of public funds, and making materially false statements, earlier this year.

A House Ethics Committee report released two weeks ago found there was “substantial evidence” that Santos repeatedly broke the law.

He pleaded not guilty to all charges against him.
