Not from the US, so I'll ask:
Could Santos have resigned and then stood for re-election?
If so, then it was he who decided that the voters should not choose.
If you resign you can stand for re-election, yes. Nothing stops you legally. But the optics might be a bit good or bad depending on the hows and whys.
However, the voters in Santos' former district will be deciding regardless and expulsion makes it much less likely for him to attempt to get re-elected.
