    At this point, politically I don't care if Santos is a crook or not. He is an R, thats all that matters. They are all crooks, but I would rather have the R's rule the House then the totally corrupt D's. The GOP should rally around Santos and demand he stay, claim the D's are discriminating (his name is Santos after all), demand equal treatment and start pushing for all the corrupt D's to be evicted to make the D's back off.

    The GOP has to play scorched earth hardball.

    Punish the guy but keep him in. As @Wilson2 pointed out, it's the majority that's at risk. And that's everything as far as I'm concerned. The old and honorable "voting for the best man" can easily become a suicide pact without any scenario-based moderation.
    Wow. I have to say, kudos on being very straightforward and upfront with your partisanship-matters-more-than-justice position.

    Practically speaking, I don't think it matters at this point. It looks very much like he forged signatures in his campaign and now it seems that he made up a number of donors who simply do not exist. Recalled or not, he's almost certainly going to jail.

    But here's a question because I"m curious how far you'd push the line of just ignoring crimes committed by Republicans: Let's imagine Trump (or some other Republican) was still in the WH. Assuming Santos gets tried, convicted, and sentenced, would you urge the president to issue a pardon so that the GOP could better maintain it's majority in the House?

    He's evidently pathological, much like Schiff, Swallowell, and Biden.

    Send him packing.

    Yep. And with shouts of hurrah for our side.... whatever it takes to avoid the civil war that the Marxists on the democratic side want. I'll be the Rahab who lies and deceives the enemy to accomplish the greater good. She was despised only by those that God destined for destruction.


    I know the enemy. And taking out the enemy's generals by removing them from power is most important at this time. Making what would seem to be good and honorable decisions that would put a Democrat in the chair of the Speaker of the House is a betrayal to all good and decent Americans.

    Its not partisanship over justice, its survival. See the top of this article, it should look amazingly familiar: Saul Alinskys 12 Rules for Radicals BolenReport



    The democrats engaged in an insurgency - their The Long March through the Institutions of Society - Renew - to take over the nation and replace the government and are in the final stages. They have successfully taken over most of the government and use its power to apply the law and force unequally. Democrats break the law all the time with impunity, their political opponents get the full weight of the law dropped on them for the smallest infraction.

    Look at the $Billions of destruction BLM did to cities with no punishment, compare that to the Jan 6 protestors still locked up in solitary for simply being in DC on the wrong side of the political line.

    Look at the SWAT raids on Trump over classified documents even though there is zero evidence - not even a hint - those documents were accessed by unauthorized people, compare that to the kid gloves applied to Bidens mishandling for over 6 years of classified documents and proven exposure to unauthorized people and likely foreign governments (the China funded Penn Biden Center Penn Biden Center is 'dark money nightmare,' patronage mill (nypost.com)).

    The policy of "taking the high road" when the field is so uneven is a suicide pact. Following rules that handicap your response and don't give any benefit, rules that don't apply to the democrats, rules that give your enemy a huge advantage, is simply stupid.

    Democrats blatantly steal the 2020 Presidential election and the 2 Georgia senate runoffs, and even more openly steal 2022 elections such as the AZ governor race, democrats set up a massive fraud to siphon Ukraine "aid" into democrat election funds via FTX ($70 million? $100 million? Nobody really knows yet), and you want to crucify Santos for forging some signatures and making up some donors?

    When all the democrats who lie, cheat, and steal get the same treatment as Santos, I'll get on board.


    Ii have no doubt Santos is doomed because democrats control law enforcement, and the GOP is spineless.

    The goal is to return to the rule of law, not to go further down the road of injustice.



    If a true conservative was President, I would hope he demand equal treatment for all Congressmen and force all the ones who broke the law to get elected be removed from office and sent to prison.

    I would suggest (if I was in that position to suggest to the Pres) that he take unilateral action - use Obama's pen and phone - to force the FBI and FEC to charge and convict all such law breakers. But of course start with the democrats.
    Matthew 22:36-40 What is the greatest commandment?
    Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and most important commandment. The second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.

    And the corrupt, senile pervert who is our fabulist in chief? Oh, he's okay. And, our fabulist who chaired the Intelligence Committee? Oh, he's okay.



    The only problem for Rep. Santos is he should have run as a Democrat.

    Democrats can lie, cheat, murder and that is all okay but let a Republican try that and it's to the wood shed with you.

    Yes. Laws no longer matter that's become quite obvious so it's who has the power and if I have to choose it's Republican power for now.

    Trading morality for political power, sounds very democrat party to me.
