Screenshots of the the former House representative joining the video-sharing website circulated shortly after the vote, and Cameo confirmed the account's verification to Wired. A link to the page is now displayed on Santos' official X (formerly Twitter) account.

"Former congressional 'Icon'!," his Cameo bio reads. "The Expelled member of Congress from New York City."

Why did Congress expel George Santos?

Santos was expelled after a House Ethics Committee report found substantial evidence that the congressman misused campaign funds for his own personal benefit and committed federal crimes.

Both Republicans and Democrats called for Santos to resign in due to his many controversies. Although Santos has admitted to lying about his background, he has rejected all wrongdoing connected to the federal charges and pleaded not guilty.
