Even though George Santos has been expelled from Congress, his legacy lives on through a bill I named after him: the SANTOS Act, which holds Congressional candidates accountable for lying to the public.

STOP ANOTHER NON-TRUTHFUL OFFICE SEEKER.

Much needed! Also more guardrails would help to rid us of governance dysfunction.

No wonder MTG was going all Regan and the spinning head from "The Exorcist". Not only does she lose one of her criminal besties, but this could totally reduce the treason and lying in Congress (to a degree)!

Anything that makes the GQP miserable is good for the nation!

To the lie. cheat, steal, murder for Jesus, anything goes to advance their own agenda crowd it won't matter, but the Santos bundle of lies is in fact no different than the "Big Lie," "The 2020 election was stolen from Trump by fraud." There's no way Maga candidates can reconcile this to voters.

This spout was removed because the account associated with it was suspended.

Do Representatives and Senators have to pass a background check? If no, why not?

They have to only when they're getting clearances.

A lot of times not even security clearances are required.

Yes! Thank you! Let’s learn from and legislate to eradicate all the weaknesses their shamelessness is exposing.

Does this Act also protect voters from candidates who flip to the other party after being elected? A resignation followed by a special election should be required when this happens.
