George Santos, An Embarrassment And Burden To Republican Party

First term Congressman George Santos (R-New York) is just the latest example of the disaster that is the Republican Party of 2023!

Santos has copied Donald Trump in stating that the 13 charges brought against him this week by the federal government are a “witch hunt”!

He has lied about everything imaginable, and he should resign from office, but Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy desperately needs every vote on every bill, since he has only a four seat majority in the House of Representatives.

Santos is an embarrassment and burden to the Republican Party, and it is likely that his Congressional seat in Northern Queens County and North Shore of Nassau County, the area where this blogger and author lived in the first half of his life, will turn back to Democratic if there is a special election during the term, or else in the regular election cycle in 2024!

Outrageous For Speaker McCarthy To Deny Three Democrats Appointments To Committees They Have Served On!

Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy is demonstrating what a total disaster he is, allowing right wing extremists to have authority, and now working to deny Democrats of their appointments on the House Intelligence Committee, specifically Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell both from California, who have served on that committee honorably!

McCarthy is also taking a stand against Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, planning to deny her continued membership on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, but giving the phony liar, George Santos, positions on two committees!

This is outrageous, and the few moderate Republicans, such as Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Nancy Mace of South Carolina, and Don Bacon of Nebraska, along with a few others, can prevent this outrageous violation of McCarthy to be prevented by voting with Democrats to overrrule the Speaker!

The Disaster Of Charlatan George Santos, A Burden For Nassau County, Long Island, New York!

This author and blogger grew up on Long Island, in northern Queens and Nassau County, and lived there for four decades before moving to South Florida.

The area I used to live in is now represented in the House of Representatives by a person who lied about his background, education, religion, sexuality, and his financing for his election.

George Santos is a disgrace, and an embarrassment to anyone who is a decent human being, and his Nassau County,Long Island Republican Party has denounced him, and called for his resignation.

But Santos says he will not leave, and at this point, the Republican Party in the House of Representatives, with a razor thin margin, has decided they are not going to intervene and pursue what the Republican Party in New York wants, that the seat be made vacant, and a new election take place.

This mess makes Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy look horrible, and demonstrates how he is allowing himself to be controlled by extremists in the Republican caucus, who have no concern about the citizens of Nassau and Queens County, Long Island, New York having decent representation, whether Republican or Democrat.

Four other newly elected Republicans in New York State, and on Long Island, as well, have demanded that Santos leave.

However, it looks as if Santos is not going anywhere, and might very well serve two years, and go down in history as a totally corrupt political figure who foisted himself on the good citizens of his Congressional district!
