Republican Rep.-elect George Santos of New York is facing numerous calls to resign after he admitted lying about his job history and income.
A New York Times story indicated that in the recent past Santos struggled with his finances, taking loans from friends (some of which were allegedly not repaid) and facing eviction from apartments.
In a tweet, out congressman Ritchie Torres of New York raised a pertinent question, referencing Santos’s past position as a call center employee, where he earned $55,000 a year.
Journalist David Corn raised similar questions about the mystery of Santos’s money. So should Santos actually take office in January, how much will his taxpayer-sponsored salary lift his troubled bottom line?
