There has rightly been a lot of focus this month on incoming House Republican George Santos and his numerous disqualifying scandals. But while Santos is a disaster, he’s far from the only incoming House Republican who shouldn’t even be allowed in the Capitol on a visitor pass.

Take, for instance, newly elected House Republican Cory Mills of Florida, who just took office last night. He’s already tweeting this kind of evil garbage, for which House Democrat Eric Swalwell correctly called him out:

Part of the problem is that because Donald Trump was a lifelong con artist and consistently behaved like an infantile jerk while he was in office, plenty of other lifelong con artists and infantile jerks are now running for office as Republicans as well.

What they don’t get is that Trump’s win in 2016 had nothing to do with anything Trump said or did, and Trump’s seven million vote loss in 2020 was more indicative of what Americans thought of him. This kind of con artistry and clownery will continue to play very poorly for the Republican Party, and will only end up costing them in 2024.
