Following a scathing report from the House Ethics Committee, embattled Rep. George Santos announced he is not running for re-election in 2024.
“I am humbled yet again and reminded that I am human and I have flaws, but I will not stand by as I am stoned by those who have flaws themselves,” Santos wrote on Twitter. “I will continue on my mission to serve my constituents up until I am allowed. I will however NOT be seeking re-election for a second term in 2024 as my family deserves better than to be under the gun from the press all the time.”
Barring Santos changing his mind, he will be out of Congress in early 2025.
What The Report Said About George Santos
A report by the committee found “substantial evidence” that Santos “violated federal criminal laws.”
