Nassau County prosecutors have launched an investigation into Representative George Santos, after revelations surfaced that the now-embattled Republican lied about his heritage, education and professional pedigree as he campaigned for office. But despite intensifying doubt about his fitness to hold federal office, Santos has shown no signs of stepping aside – even as he has publicly admitted to a long list of fabrications. He is scheduled to be sworn in next Tuesday, when the U.S. House reconvenes. If he assumes office, he could face investigations by the House Committee on Ethics and the Justice Department.
