George Santos Calls Himself the ‘Mary Magdalene of United States Congress,’ Hurls Accusations Against Colleagues

In the wake of a damning report by the House Ethics Committee, Rep. George Santos, a New York Republican, is facing a third — and possibly final — attempt at his expulsion from Congress when the members return from the Thanksgiving holiday this week. 

The committee’s investigation revealed substantial evidence of lawbreaking, including the misuse of campaign funds for personal expenses, leading to false or incomplete reports.

But Santos, who says he expects to be expelled, will not be taking it sitting down. In a three-hour rambling on The Monica Matthews Show on X Spaces on Friday, the embattled congressman hurled accusations at his colleagues.

 “Within the ranks of the United States Congress, there’s felons galore, there’s people with all sorts of sheisty backgrounds, and all of a sudden George Santos is the Mary Magdalene of United States Congress,” he claimed. 

He may be coming to terms with a potential expulsion, saying he’s “done the math over and over, and it doesn’t look really good,” but he’s also threatening to spill some hot congressional tea before walking away. 

Santos talked about “colleagues who are more worried about getting drunk every night with the next lobbyists that they’re going to screw and pretend like none of us know what’s going on and sell off the American people,” plus some who do “not show up to vote because they’re too hungover or whatever the reason is, or not show up to vote at all and just give their card out like fucking candy for someone else to vote for them. This shit happens every single week. Where are the ethics investigations?”

The committee’s monthslong probe found Santos using campaign funds for luxury retail purchases, botox injections, and OnlyFans, coupled with causing the campaign to file inaccurate reports. Investigators highlighted his lack of cooperation and evasion of requests for information. Santos, branding the report as “slanderous,” avoided specifics, citing potential implications in an ongoing criminal case.

Santos, who has resisted calls to resign, remains defiant, even saying that he will treat his expulsion “as a badge of honor.”

“I’ll be the sixth expelled member of Congress in the history of Congress. And guess what? I’ll be the only one expelled without a conviction,” he said. 

However, Santos may actually be halfway to a conviction. On top of the House Ethics Committee’s findings, he was in October indicted for 23 charges of conspiracy, wire fraud, false statements, falsification of records, aggravated identity theft, and credit card fraud.
