Rep. Burchett is one of the members of Congress who pushed back at Santos's condemnation by saying that they're all a bunch of sinners.
Republican lawmaker George Santos has been at the forefront of criticism lately, leaving the House of Representatives floor divided, with many calling for him to be expelled.
During all this, Rep. Mike Lawler, who has long supported ousting Santos, accused him of defrauding his constituents and defended his decision to vote to expel him.
Rep. Tim Burchett pushed back on that condemnation by saying they're all a 'bunch of sinners'.
However, the House ended up voting to expel New York Republican Rep. George Santos over ethics violations.
New York Republican leader George Santos had been under investigation for alleged ethical violations at various levels, including local, state, federal, international, and congressional inquiries, which could potentially lead to significant legal consequences and reputational damage.
These include accusations about his previous business dealings, his campaign finance expenses, and allegations that he engaged in sexual misconduct towards an individual seeking employment in his congressional office.
In interviews that followed after the news broke, Santos conceded that he lied about certain aspects of his résumé, including the fact that he graduated from college.
This makes Santos only the sixth lawmaker ever to be kicked out of the chamber. The resolution required a two-thirds majority vote to succeed.
Santos is now the first member of Congress to be expelled since the Civil War who wasn't first convicted of a felony.
