A majority of New Yorkers want George Santos to resign: poll
A majority of New York voters say Rep. George Santos, RNY, should resign from Congress, according to a Monday poll from Sienna.
The poll found that 59% of voters in the state said he should resign, while only 20% said he should stay in Congress. Among Republicans, 49% said he should resign, and only 26% said he shouldn’t.
Santos is under increasing pressure to step down as more details about his past come to light, revealing much of his resume to be fabricated. Santos has admitted to lying about his work and educational background. It also faces federal, state, and even international fraud investigations.
Several people allegedly from Santos’ past have also come forward with stories of cheating and even theft.

“No, I was not a drag queen in Brazil, guys. I was young, and I had fun at a festival. Sue me to have a life,” Santos told reporters who followed him at the airport on Saturday , according to the New York Times York Post
