Huizenga Statement on Santos Expulsion Vote

Today, Congressman Bill Huizenga (R-MI) released the following statement after voting against the expulsion resolution.

โ€œThe accusations against Mr. Santos are very serious and credible. While I find his behavior appalling, every American deserves their day in court,โ€ said Congressman Bill Huizenga. โ€œIn the modern era, no member of Congress has been expelled without a conviction, including some recent cases where former members went on to serve jail time. I am extremely concerned by the precedent this vote sets and believe this action will likely open the door for expulsion to be used as a political weapon in the future. In America, even dirtbags deserve due process.โ€
