Embattled Rep. George Santos, R-N.Y., refused to resign from Congress on Wednesday after Nassau County Republican leaders called on him to resign over revelations that he lied about his qualifications.
Santos has faced growing calls for his resignation since his resume was proven to be false after winning the midterm elections. The Nassau GOP, which operates within Santo’s congressional district, is the first major Republican group to call for Santos’ resignation.
“George Santos campaign last year was a campaign of deceit, lies, and fabrication,” Nassau County GOP Chairman Joe Cairo said in a statement.
“He has no place on the Nassau County Republican committee, nor should he serve public service, nor as an elected official. He’s not welcome here at GOP HQ.”
