George Santos faces growing condemnation as House GOP leadership remains silent

 GOP Rep.-elect George Santos is facing growing condemnation from House Democrats,

some of whom have called on him to step aside,

and even from some corners of the GOP, with at least one of his fellow incoming Republicans

calling for him to face an ethics investigation. House GOP leadership,

however, remains silent over revelations that the New York Republican lied about parts of his biography.

Santos has admitted to fabricating sections of his resume – including his past work experience

and education – and has apologized but says he intends to serve in Congress.
