Republican House Oversight Chairman Slams 'Bad Guy' George Santos

House Oversight and Accountability Committee chairman James Comer, a Kentucky Republican, said Sunday that newly-elected Representative George Santos, a New York Republican, is

a "bad guy" who would be removed from Congress if he is found to have broken campaign finance laws. While speaking to CNN's State of the Union on Sunday, Comer said, "This

is something that is really bad. He's not the first politician unfortunately to make it to Congress to lie. Elizabeth Warren wasn't truthful about her ethnicity, and I could go on

and on. George Santos was duly elected by the people. He is going to be under strict Ethics investigations. Not necessarily for lying, but for his campaign finance potential

violations." The GOP lawmaker continued: "I think that Santos is being examined thoroughly. It's his decision whether or not he should resign, it's not my decision. But

certainly, I don't approve of how he made his way to Congress, and I haven't even introduced myself to him." Santos is facing mounting criticism and calls for his

resignation after many claims he made on the campaign trail were proven to be false. "He's disgraced the House of Representatives, and we do not consider him one of our

congresspeople. His lies were not mere fibs. He disgraced the House of Representatives. He's not welcome here at Republican headquarters," Joseph Cairo, chair of the Nassau County

GOP, said last week at a press conference.
