Santos Tells House GOP He Will Recuse Himself From House Committee Seats
Rep. George Santos (R-NY) has reportedly recused himself from serving on any House committees, according to several reports.
The scandal-plagued freshman told House Republicans that he’ll be taking a step back because “he’s a distraction,” an anonymous lawmaker told the Washington Post. The announcement was made in a closed GOP conference on Tuesday morning.
He will reportedly be stepping down from his assignments on the House Small Business Committee and the Science, Space and Technology Committee, CNN reported.
