Once again, Democrats are trying to silence the voice of a Republican member of Congress. Rep. Ted Lieu of California has made unfounded and baseless accusations against newly elected Rep. George Santos, claiming that he participated in “highly illegal” activities and should be expelled from Congress.
This is nothing more than an attempt by the left to silence a conservative voice and undermine the will of the people who elected Rep. Santos to represent them.
The accusations stem from reports that a Santos campaign staffer impersonated the chief of staff of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy.
However, there is no evidence that Rep. Santos had any knowledge or involvement in this supposed impropriety. Yet, Rep. Lieu is using this as an excuse to call for Rep. Santos’s expulsion from Congress.
But it’s not just Rep. Lieu who is trying to undermine Rep. Santos. A left-leaning watchdog group, Campaign Legal Center, has filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission, urging them to investigate Rep. Santos for supposedly hiding the true source of his campaign funding. This is yet another desperate attempt by the left to silence a conservative voice and delegitimize the election results.
It’s clear that the left will stop at nothing to silence conservative voices and undermine the will of the American people. Rep. Santos was elected by the people to represent them and these baseless accusations are nothing more than an attempt to silence him and delegitimize his election. It’s time for the Democrats to stop their political games and start working for the American people.
