Following George Santos’ expulsion from Congress, state legislators gather in Douglaston to promote bill that would prevent other liars from taking office

Following the expulsion of George Santos from Congress, officials gathered outside his now empty office in Douglaston to rally support for “common sense” legislation inspired by his deceit of voters. 

The bill, introduced by state Sen. John Liu and Assemblymember Gina Sillitti, calls for greater transparency in candidate disclosures. The state lawmakers were joined by Susan Lerner, executive director of Common Cause New York, outside the Northern Boulevard office on Friday, Dec. 8, to rally support.
