George Santos may not have worked hard to get his position in the House of Representatives but he did lie hard - and he’s not leaving without a fight.
Santos, 34, was recently elected to represent New York’s third congressional district in the midterm elections.
But a string of investigations that accused Santos of lying about his former career as a “seasoned Wall Street financier and investor,” his alma mater, his volunteer work, and statements he made has besmirched his reputation.
Naturally, several congresspeople have called on Santos to resign, including four GOP congressmen.
Two Fox News employees wondered if the number was a reference to the roughly 142,000 votes Santos won by in his congressional district.
\u201cWhy did Rep George Santos say this morning "if 142 people ask for me to resign, I will resign"?\n\nI honestly don't know. But Fox colleague Peter Kasperowicz points out that Santos got about 142,000 votes in his NY-3 election. So maybe he's somehow referring to that number?\u201d
