Jen Kiggans Stands With George Santos, Votes to Protect Serial Liar
Kiggans, House Republicans back George Santos in U.S. House

Today, Jen Kiggans voted to protect serial liar George Santos just a week after Santos was indicted on 13-counts by federal prosecutors and admitted guilt to criminal charges in Brazil.

House Democrats introduced a privileged resolution to expel Santos from Congress on Tuesday to ensure the people of New York’s Third Congressional district have a voice in Congress. Kiggans and a majority of House Republicans voted to refer the resolution to the House Ethics Committee, thereby delaying accountability for voters in his district.

A motion to refer expulsion to the Ethics Committee only serves to protect Santos for the remainder of his term. 

DCCC spokesperson Nebeyatt Betre:
“Jen Kiggans voted to protect the lies, deceit, and disgrace of George Santos in the U.S. House of Representatives. Kiggans is too weak to stand up to her Washington party bosses – and Virginians will remember.”

REMINDER: George Santos has been charged with wire fraud, money laundering, theft of public funds, and making false statements to Congress. Last month, Santos announced his intention to run for re-election, and has repeatedly stated he has no plans to resign.
