Fetterman's troll game is strong. But often I think there are better things to do with one's time.

The only thing hilarious about George Santos is that his Long Island district was dumb enough to elect him and that they'll probably replace him with a more stealthy competently corrupt R.

CounterPoint. Fetterman's move is excellent troll game, it's not MY money, and he's not MY politician in any way. Plus Santos going to jail is on the justice system to enforce, not us.

I approve.

Also, and I got this from Crooked’s What a Day, but getting a Cameo from this guy puts your credit card number THAAAAAAT much closer to George Santos and that ain’t what you want.

One thing Santos said kind of got to me, though. He said this sets a precedent. Specifically, that it means congress can expel a member before a conviction. I wonder if the GOP will try to have a ton of left leaning congresspeople removed if/when they take over again...

I hope I'm being paranoid.

I'm so annoyed that the first drag queen we got in Congress was Santos. What a waste.

I hate to say it because he shouldn't be anywhere near our halls of government, but they should have stripped him of any committee assignments (if he had any) and benched him until the next election. Now, he's being removed before being convicted of anything, and he can play the victim until, hopefully, he's in prison. Or, maybe nobody cares, and his 'constituents' are embarrassed that they were conned, and they're glad he's out. But you just know, there's a group of people out there that are going to take up his 'cause' and this will never end, because now he's a victim of *something*.

Also, does he get unemployment, since he was fired?

Just went to his page. It says it's Temporarily Unavailable. Also, it says it's $20 for a message but I assume that's just a voicemail? He has a 5 star rating based on 6 reviews.

Any of you who use Cameo: can you see how many people have bought one besides Fetterman?

I get why Fetterman did it and I get why everyone is annoyed with him for doing it. That’s all I got.

I would be willing to bet most of the people buying Santos Cameos are the same people who think the Lincoln Project did good things during the Trump years.

Fetterman could have hired Snookie again. God knows she will use the money in less terrible ways, and that's saying a lot, because Snookie. There is, however, a chance that someone in her family knows someone in The Family that is somehow connected to a corrupt senator (gasp! shock!), so maybe pick a whack job from a less...connected part of the country.
