Among members of Congress who voted against Santos’ expulsion were Reps. Mike Turner, R-Dayton; Warren Davidson, R-Troy; and Jim Jordan, R-Urbana.
Turner’s office declined to comment on Friday’s vote.
Davidson’s and Jordan’s offices did not immediately return a request for comment.
Santos is the sixth member in the House’s history to be ousted by colleagues, the Associated Press reported.
The effort to expel the freshman congressman was led by the House Ethics Committee, which found “overwhelming evidence” during a monthslong investigation that Santos had broken the law and exploited his public position for his own profit, AP reported.
Other Republican and all Democratic representatives from Ohio voted in favor of ousting Santos, including Greg Landsman, D-Cincinnati, whose district includes Warren County.
Landsman called Santos a “wholly dishonest person, a total fraud, and most likely a serious criminal.”
“His voters, who he defrauded, wanted him removed and thankfully the vast majority of Congress agreed,” Landsman said.
