GOP leaders are calling on Santos to quit for lying, but he claims to have “lived an honest life.”

Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.) said Thursday he “lived an honest life” and indicated he would seek reelection in 2024. A firestorm erupted last month after the New York Times and other outlets outlined apparent fabrications in Santos’ work and educational background. Rep. Ruben Santos’ (R-N.Y.) congressional campaign was “a campaign of deceit, lies, fabrication,” local GOP officials say. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy says Santos has “got a long way to go to earn trust”. Two Democratic lawmakers filed a complaint with the House Ethics Committee.
