    Poor dears probably got confused by all those years of Honest Joe Bidenís Multiverse of Madness.

    Weird that anyone is stepping forwards to defend Santos. But the sophistry of those who do is expected.

    Is Santos really the sort of person the GOP wants in their party?

    One of my previous employers had a zero tolerance rule for lying on an employment application. One of my co-workers was fired for saying he had multiple college degrees when he had none. It was early in his employment, and possibly during a probationary period. He was a hard worker and very smart. Weird thing is that it was back in a draconian period when passing a lie detector was required and involved specific questions about lying on the job application and certain details. There must be some people who believe in their fantasy world so much it becomes reality.

    This was the rule in the last few Silicon Valley companies I was at. We let go a VP once when his resume-padding surfaced a few months or so into his employment. Not sure why we would be willing to accept this sort of thing in an elected office.

    When I was in a political office here, I was required to file lots of disclosure forms before the election, and each year I was in office afterwards, with the State paperwork-pushers, and the claimed consequences for fibbing were quite dire.

    As I recall in my example it fell under the falsification of company records policies, and the thought was that if it happened on an employment application, it could happen with other critical records. It actually caused a bit of a stir because the guy was well liked and had nothing to do with his work. There are probably political comparisons.

    No he's not, and he's not the only one. The problem is he (and they) were hired by their constituents and should be fired by same.

    No. For instance, Republicans did not speak ill of trump in public but did so in private. This shows they cannot be relied upon to do the right thing.

    There are other republican representatives that lied about literally every single aspect of their lives in order to fraudulently win an election?

    Thinking about Santos (if that is in fact his name. Are we really sure he hasn't lied about that as well?) it would have been interesting to see how the spineless republicans reacted if all this had come out prior to the election. We'll never know, of course, but I suspect that they would have reacted about the same as they did when the Texan running for Georgia senate was found to have multiple kids that he pretended didn't exist and had paid for an abortion for a fetus he didn't want to add to the collection of unwanted children.

    No. The problem is that the voters were lied to and made their decision based on those lies. The House of Representatives, currently (sort of) led by his party, have a duty to fix that since at this point the House are the only people who can do this according to the constitution.
