House oversight chair James Comer calls George Santos 'despicable' amid scandal

House Republican Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer has harshly condemned freshman Republican Representative George Santos and his multiple fabrications.The newly-minted chairman, a Republican from Kentucky, responded to a question from host Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday about the fact that seven House Republicans have said Mr Santos should step down.“He's a bad guy,” Mr Comer said. “This is something that’s really bad. He’s not the first politician unfortunately to make it to Congress to lie.”CNN
