emocratic New York Representative Ritchie Torres of the Bronx announced on Twitter that he will introduce a new bill that would require candidates for public office to disclose information about their background and qualifications under oath.
The title? The Stop Another Non-Truthful Office Seeker (SANTOS) Act, named after Torres’ soon-to-be House of Representatives colleague, George Santos.
Santos, a Republican, has come under heavy fire in the past two weeks after admitting he lied about several of the claims he made during his successful campaign run in the fall. The Queens native will represent New York’s 3rd Congressional District starting in the new year.
Torres, who represents New York’s 15th Congressional District, has been one of Santos’ biggest critics since news of the representative-elect’s fabrications surfaced, calling for Santos to resign before he sets foot in office.
