The New York congressman's ouster reduces the GOP's majority in the House by one seat.
"Two-thirds voted in the affirmative, the resolution is adopted," Speaker Mike Johnson announced. "The clerk will notify the governor of the state of New York of the action of the House."
The yea votes were cast by 105 Republicans and 206 Democrats, while the nays were 112 and 2, respectively.
On Thursday, Santos made it very clear that he had no intention of resigning amid claims by the Ethics Committee that they had uncovered "substantial evidence" of criminal wrongdoing.
He said the attempts by the committee to force him to step down were nothing more than "theater," calling those involved "bullies."
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
