I'm fine with chasing him out, especially with such a narrow House RepuQ majority and in a district that's likely to replace him with a D in any special election....
Gaetz, Bannon and Sleazy Santos are a real Axis of Evil.Rep. George Santos says he will resign if 142,000 people ask him to
... Santos later clarified that he was in fact referring to the more than 142,000 people who voted to elect him in New York's Third Congressional District in November.
In an interview with Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla. — who was serving as guest host of Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast — Santos said he would remain in Congress "until those same 142,000 people tell me they don't want me."...
MoveOn has a couple of petitions:

George Santos Must Resign or Be Expelled

I signed, but I have mixed feelings. I want him ousted so the seat will flip Dem. However, he is also the perfect posterboy for the lying, corrupt, unrepentant GQP. He puts the 'con' in 'conservative'. It'll be fun to use him to fish slap SINO McCarthy and the GQP for 2 years.
I didn't know that billy.pilgrim is a Yahoo commenter named luis.luis
If DOJ starts doing their job - arrest trump and his supporters traitors and MAGA republicans and that weasel santos - America will be happy nation
He'll get the Cawthorn treatment. Constituents will vote him out in 2 years and he'll spend these next 2 trying to use his power to enrich himself at all cost, while doing as little as possible to represent any of them.
How fortunate for Santos that his fellow Republicans just voted to gut the Ethics Committee.
And for the record, those 142,000 people voted for a George Santos who didn't actually exist.
i don't care if he resigns or not. i want him arrested for perjury to begin with and an investigation of his fundraising sources AND how he is spending the money he is receiving from them.
The salary for a Freshman Congressman is $174K/year. I suspect he'll do little to no local work within his district. He is on a 2 year paid vacation and will walk away with $348K in taxpayer money (on top of whatever he can get for votes b/c he is 100% for sale).
I believe the most serious, most concerning and the craziest aspect about all this may be that Santos honestly believes, truly believes, that he has done nothing wrong. And that should scare all of us regardless of political party affiliation.
