The New York Republican, accused of fabricating details of his biography, got a taste of scrutiny that comes with his new job.
George Santos invited folks to his swearing in for the 118th Congress (and illegally asked people to pay for it). So I dropped by his office to say hi. Disappointed @Santos4Congress is nowhere to be found. His office is totally closed.

Given the George Santos debacle, how is it possible that members of Congress are subject to zero background checks, zero mandated training, no security clearance, no formal scrutiny? There are more routine checks for corporate HR than Congress. It’s crazy. https://t.co/L4r5y0DSvp
