Washington, D.C. – This week, MoveOn Political Action flew a 15-foot inflatable of disgraced Rep. George Santos outside the Capitol, demanding that Congress expel him. For months, MoveOn and its members have been calling for Santos to resign or be expelled for the sake of NY-03 residents who deserve real representation.
