Did they get laid off? Sent to an agency pool? Reassigned to other reps?

It must have an impact on a lot of people not named santos, both in ny and DC.

teh house clerk will run his office until then according to house rules

from NBC news

While Santos must now pack up his belongings, his congressional staff will continue working. According to House rules, the House clerk is responsible for supervising the staff and managing the office of any member who dies or resigns or is expelled until a successor is elected.

The clerk, Kevin McCumber, will have the authority to hire and fire staff members for the office with approval from the House Administration Committee.

to just paint him as a serial liar. I don't think they are too worried about him.

He'll need them to get inside the office and they'll remain while he grabs his stuff. Or they will pack up the office and send his stuff to him. Either way... Ha! Ha!

in the EOB if Orange Jesus wins the presidency. Trump would never allow a liar and cheater like Santos to get away.
As long as he pledged fealty to his Assholiness, Santos would always be a trusted member of a Trump White House. Probably even a cabinet member. 😬

and pray to (insert name of favorite deity here) that Trump never gets anywhere near the White House again.
The consequences are too horrible to think about if he does.
