Rep. George Santos isn’t bowing to strain to resign after Republican Celebration leaders on Long Island known as on him to step down after revelations that he fabricated his background.
Santos, who represents the third Congressional District overlaying the North Shore of Long Island and a portion of Queens, tweeted that he was “elected to serve the people of #NY03 not the party & politicians.”
“I remain committed to doing that and regret to hear that local officials refuse to work with my office to deliver results to keep our community safe and lower the cost of living,” he wrote, including “I will NOT resign!”
Santos’ tweet got here shortly after Long Island officers held a press convention calling for his resignation.
