George Santos Stepping Down From Committees

  • A whirlwind of controversy, buffeted by such revelations as records contradicting Santos’ claim that his mother was in the World Trade Center during the 9/11 terrorist attacks, led his own constituents to sour on the congressman.
  • The results of a Newsday/Siena College poll, released Tuesday, showed 78% of the congressman’s constituents saying they want Santos to resign.
  • Among a flurry of investigative activity, Santos appears to be under a federal criminal inquiry, with prosecutors looking into the congressman’s campaign finances, according to The Washington Post.
