Democrats are calling on GOP Rep-elect George Santos to resign for embellishing his resume and lying about being Jewish.
Recall, George Santos flipped New York’s 3rd Congressional district red in November when he defeated Robert Zimmerman.
On Monday night Santos admitted he lied about his education, employment history and Jewish background in an interview with the New York Post:
Long Island Rep.-elect George Santos came clean to The Post on Monday, admitting that he lied on the campaign trail about his education and work experience — but insisting that the controversy won’t deter him from serving out his two-year term in Congress.
“I am not a criminal,” Santos said at one point during his exclusive interview. “This [controversy] will not deter me from having good legislative success. I will be effective. I will be good.”
Santos’ professional biography was called into question earlier this month after the New York Times reported that he misrepresented a number of claims, including where he attended college and his alleged employment history with high-profile Wall Street firms.
“My sins here are embellishing my resume. I’m sorry,” Santos said Monday.
Santos confessed he had “never worked directly” for Goldman Sachs and Citigroup, chalking that fib up to a “poor choice of words.”
The 34-year-old now claims instead that a company called Link Bridge, where he worked as a vice president, did business with both of the financial giants.
“I will be clearer about that. It was stated poorly,” Santos said of the lie.
He also admitted that he never graduated from any college, despite previously claiming to have received a degree from Baruch in 2010.
Democrats are out for blood and are now calling on Santos to be expelled.
Dear @GOPLeader: George Santos knowingly let you spread his lies. @Santos4Congress has embarrassed you and the Republican caucus. The honorable thing to do would be for you to publicly ask him to resign. If he doesn’t, then you should schedule a vote to expel him from Congress. https://t.co/3cg4foCpWq

When is Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar going to be forced to resign for marrying her own brother and then lying about it under oath?
When is Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren going to be forced to resign after lying about her Native American heritage?
Elizabeth Warren falsely claimed she is Native American and made an entire career off of her lie.
Warren had a high-paying gig at Harvard because she lied about her heritage.
When called out on her lies, Warren said her paw-paw’s high cheek bones proved she was Native American.
However, a DNA test said otherwise. She is only 1/1,024 Native American.
