Accused of serial lies, Santos faces US Congressional probe

FIRST-TIME Republican congressman George Santos will be investigated by the US House Ethics Committee over allegations that he lied extensively about his background and violated campaign finance laws, the committee said yesterday.  

Santos has admitted fabricating much of his biography, including his real name, his religion (he falsely claimed to be Jewish), his schooling and his employment history when he ran last year for a House seat representing parts of Long Island, New York.
