NextImg:House frees itself from George Santos: Washington Photos of the Week

House members jettisoned indicted New York GOP Rep. George Santos from the Capitol on Friday with a rare expulsion vote that had only been successfully deployed six times in U.S. history.

But days before he was kicked out of his job for rampant allegations of ethics violations and criminal fraud, a giant inflatable Santos was on the loose.

MoveOn Political Action, a liberal group, rolled out a 15-foot balloon of Santos wearing a suit and tie reading "full of lies." The political stunt was to urge lawmakers to kick out the freshman lawmaker. Yet on the blustery Tuesday, the cartoon Santos broke free and tumbled around the Capitol.


With the real Santos out of a job, Gov. Kathy Hochul (D-NY) will set a special election date for the swing district seat.
