Rep. Garcia mentioned on MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes:
I believe that’s true. On the finish of the day, Kevin McCarthy is given away the keys to his management and speakership to of us like George Santos, to of us like Marjorie Taylor Greene. He’s misplaced all management of the caucus, and he wants Santos for key votes on the deficit the price range, and so he’s given away his energy to those of us. He’s been working with a liar and big fraudster within the congress.
McCarthy is now going to have to select, whether or not he’ll assist George Santos, who’s an admitted liar and fraud, or really hearken to the American individuals. We’ll proceed to push this as finest as doable, we predict it’s completely the precise strategy, and we’ve given loads of time to George Santos to resign. We’ve been calling the resignation for months, but it surely’s time to do the precise factor. It is best to resign tonight.
If Santos had a shred of decency or care about America, he would resign tonight.
George Santos will maintain scamming congressional paychecks for so long as he can. The plan is for Santos to attempt to journey this scandal out till his time period ends in January 2025.
Kevin McCarthy wants Santos’s vote, so he isn’t going to assist expelling him. McCarthy will attempt to bury Santos’s crimes within the Home Ethics Committee, hoping he can run out the clock and never lose 25% of his Home majority.
It’s tough to decide on who’s worse on this scenario. Is it Santos the alleged felony, or Kevin McCarthy for conserving a felony within the Home?
