WASHINGTON, DC – The following is the statement of Major General (Ret.) Paul Eaton, Senior Advisor to VoteVets, on news last night that George Santos raised money for a disabled veteran and his dying pet, and then kept the money.
“There is not much that’s lower in this world than stealing from a disabled veteran with a terminally ill dog. The idea that the House Republicans would continue to embrace George Santos, and seat him on committees, should sicken every decent American.
“Santos must be referred to the Ethics Committee and must face an eventual expulsion vote, if he will not step down. If Speaker McCarthy has any sense of right and wrong, he will support just that.”
