Republican congressman-elect George Santos appears to have mental issues after revelations that he has fabricated large chunks of his life. And even when George apologized, it left more questions than answers.

It was a half-assed apology. He said things like, "My sins here are embellishing my resume. I'm sorry."

No, it's not about embellishing his resume. That's when you add a couple of years to your work history or something along those lines. But George lied about his entire life.

According to Politico, his press secretary is done.

In a sign Santos' standing is growing increasingly shaky, his campaign press secretary resigned Thursday, POLITICO first reported. The press secretary, Gabby Lipsky, had been expected to join the congressman-elect's staff in D.C. before she stepped down, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Imagine being such a shameful liar that one of your future colleagues names an Act after you to prevent any more liars from taking office and deceiving their constituents.

Democratic congressman introduces the "SANTOS Act"

Rep. Ritchie Torres (D-Bronx) announced Thursday night he is introducing legislation that would require candidates for federal office to disclose their employment, educational and military history under oath. False statements would be punishable as perjury.

"I find it outrageous that a fraudulent candidate like George Santos can lie to voters about his qualifications, about his employment and educational background," Torres said. "It would enable voters to compare what a candidate has said under oath versus what a candidate has said on the campaign trail."

She doesn't get a pass:

This is thoroughly embarrassing for the GOP. After all, George was part of the red trickle that was supposed to be a tsunami during the midterms. And George just demeaned that trickle. I hate liars. My mother always told me I'd never get married because she said that I'm too honest. I sure showed her. I've been married 3 times. Take that, MOM! I don't count two of them, though.
