Rep. George Santos is facing calls for him to resign from fellow Republicans back home in New York. Long Island Rep. George Santos’ re-election campaign consisted almost entirely of “deceit, lies, fabrication,” official says. He faces a potential House Ethics Committee investigation, though that panel is “not known for doling out significant punishments”. Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman has said his office won’t work with Santos until he resigns. In 1983, House Democrats booted Rep. Phil Gramm from his seat on the Budget Committee.
Gramm switched parties, resigned from Congress and ran again for the seat as a Republican. He easily won the special election and became the first Republican ever to represent the district.
