Long Island’s incoming Republican congressmen break silence on Santos


Since Congressman-elect George Santos admitted to fabricating his resume on Monday, his fellow incoming Republican U.S. representatives have spoken out against his dodgy behavior to varying degrees.

Congressman-elect Nick LaLota, who won in New York’s 1st congressional district to replace Lee Zeldin in Suffolk County, has called on the House Ethics Committee to investigate Santos, saying Long Islanders are “deeply troubled” by the recent news articles calling his life story into question.
