Santos: I’ll Resign If “142 People” Ask Me To [VIDEO]

NBC News reports:

Rep. George Santos, the newly sworn-in New York Republican under fire for fabricating large parts of his résumé, told NBC News on Thursday that “if 142 people ask for me to resign, I will resign.” He later clarified in an interview on Steve Bannon’s War Room with Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., that he was referring to the more than 142,000 people who elected him in November’s race for New York’s 3rd Congressional District.

Santos said he would be in Congress “until those same 142,000 people tell me they don’t want me.” A growing number of Republican lawmakers have called for Santos to resign in recent days, including at least four in New York and one other out of state. Top officials from Santos’ own Nassau County GOP held a press conference Wednesday and said he needs to step aside.
