I wouldn't call Gavin Newsom a deplorable, but Ron De Santis certainly is. Here's an interesting story about their respective body language they participated in tonight, moderated (lol) by Sean Hannity of Fox:

The NY Times - House Expels George Santos From Congress in Historic Vote

 

breaking

 


George Santos, the New York Republican congressman whose tapestry of lies and schemes made him a figure of national ridicule and the subject of a 23-count federal indictment, was expelled from the House on Friday after a bipartisan vote by his peers.

 

He is the first person to be expelled from the House without first being convicted of a federal crime or supporting the Confederacy.

 



Santos faces a federal trial next year.  He has been charged with 23 felonies.

YAY! One deplorable down, (sadly) many more to go...

CBS News: Florida Republican Party chair Christian Ziegler accused of rape

Florida Republican Party chair Christian Ziegler is being investigated by the Sarasota Police Department, Ziegler's attorney, Derek Byrd, confirmed.

Byrd did not say what the allegations were, but in response to a CBS News question about the charges, the Sarasota Police Department sent a heavily redacted police report that mentions an accusation of rape and sexual battery that allegedly took place on Oct. 2 in Sarasota.

... It has been reported that a woman told the Police that she and Christian and Bridget Ziegler have been involved in a three-year-long three-way sexual relationship.
...
Bridget Ziegler is a co-founder of Moms for Liberty, a far-right group that identifies as a parental rights advocate and tries to elect right-wing candidates to school boards. The group opposes references to race or LGBTQ identity in the classroom, and has called for books on gender or sexuality to be removed from school libraries.

Maybe the police should use a stop-and-frisk procedure on any Republican walking down the street, to reduce organized crime and terrorism.

The Guardian: Arizona voting officials charged for refusing to certify 2022 election results

Two elected officials in a rural Arizona county who stalled certifying election results have been charged by Arizona’s attorney general with conspiracy and interfering with an election officer.

Tom Crosby and Peggy Judd, Republican county supervisors in Cochise county, face two felony counts for their initial refusal to certify the county’s election results in 2022. A grand jury convened earlier this month to discuss the potential charges, which were filed on Wednesday.

Crosby and Judd had to be ordered by a court to certify the November 2022 election results, passing the statewide deadline for counties to canvass results. Even after the court order, Crosby did not show up to vote on the canvass.

The indictment alleges Crosby and Judd conspired to delay Cochise county’s vote canvass and knowingly interfered with the secretary of state’s ability to complete a statewide vote canvass on time.

The two supervisors have repeatedly pushed false election claims
...
During the past year, local meetings have been mired in election arguments, with one contingent showing up to call for hand counts and limits to voting access and another group speaking out to defend how elections are run. Some in the latter group have long wanted to see Crosby and Judd charged and held accountable for their efforts to derail the vote count, though they’ve also worried charges could galvanize election deniers more.

[headings only]

 

 

  • His expulsion is effectively immediately.

  • He loses his salary and health coverage.

  • There’s nothing stopping him from running again for office.

Are there going to be any criminal charges for him to face for ripping off his campaign/people? Or now he's out is that all forgotten about (or already dealt with - I haven't been following this too closely)?

New Yorker: George Santos, Fashion Criminal
...
In 2008, when Santos was living in Brazil, he wrote checks stolen from an elderly man to purchase $1,300 in shoes and clothing from a Rio de Janeiro store. Earlier this year, Santos reached a deal with Brazilian prosecutors to confess to the crime and pay damages to the victim, a store clerk he defrauded.

Years later, when Santos was living in the U.S., he allegedly stole clothes from his roommates in Queens. Two former roommates told Patch that Santos had taken an Armani shirt and a $500 Burberry shirt from them. They also accused him of stealing a Burberry scarf, which they believed he wore under a camel-hair overcoat during his speech at a “Stop the Steal” rally in Washington on January 5, 2021, after his first failed run for Congress.
