NEW YORK (PIX11) — Just days after Republican Rep. George Santos introduced his first bill in Congress, the House Ethics Committee confirmed they’re investigating Santos for alleged sexual misconduct and his financial statements and campaign donations.
New York Congressman Dan Goldman, a Democrat, told PIX11, “I am eager for that investigation to happen as quickly as possible.”
Santos’ office on social media wrote that he is “fully cooperating” with the investigation.
On Friday, Nassau County Legislator Josh Lafazan called on the committee to share a timeline for its investigation with the public, saying, “government and this House Ethics Committee is not known for being fast-moving.”
If the Ethics Committee finds wrongdoing, they can recommend censuring to expulsion.
