Although I think I see your point. If it were me I’d say “a wounded vet, with tears in his eyes, came to me and said ‘Sir. You may have said untrue things, but we need you in Congress to save our country. If your embellishments are what is required to overcome the blatant Unconstitutional cheating of those Democrats, then we will accept your embellishments.’”

Hey , both Santos and Trump are stupid liars. Their lies are so easily exposed.

Which means that they must be fundamentally honest.

It's the Democrats who are skilled liars (and hence fundamentally dishonest) because their lies are impossible to disprove.

Pathological liar, clearly needs help.

But also a fraud, he should step down immediately or be expelled.

His win is based on lies. Is this what the GOP wants?

Sadly, that argument was sincerely made in this forum by some Trumpsters.

Well, one congressman is trying to make sure there is.

Ritchie Torres introduces SANTOS Act to punish any members of Congress who lie under oath about their employment, military service or education.

Quote:
BIG NEWS: I am introducing a bill to require candidates to disclose under oath their employment, educational, & military history so we can punish candidates who lie to voters about their qualifications.

It will be called the Stop Another Non-Truthful Office Seeker (SANTOS) ACT.

A Santos Act? Couldn't the bundle it up with other stuff in a portmanteau Act - a sort of Santos Clause?

When was George Santos president? In the same universe where Nelson Mandela died in prison?

I would understand sanctions by Congress if his behavior was a surprise. But he was literally called out for being a liar during the election. It was easy to understand that he was dishonest. kicking him out doesn't help his district, but insults the very citizens who voted for him.....that they must be treated like children

Yes. The voters had a chance to evaluate his pre-election lying. They decided, don't deny their representation because you don't like their determination

ETA: And of course there will be more lies
...he is a liar. The voters judged his character and found it acceptable. Further, it isn't like he is part of the custodial staff there; his job just isn't that important.

Let's try it like this:

I would understand sanctions by The Board of Surgeons if his alarming surgical death rates was a surprise. But he was literally called out for being a annoying doctor during his medical residency. It was easy to understand that he was annoying. Revoking his medical license doesn't help all the people he has killed, but insults the very patients who he wants to operate on in future.....that they must be treated like children.

Doesn't work because what he is being accused of doing isn't a responsibility of the group policing himm If it was the honesty club I would agree. But they are allowed to lie.

The argument is not about lying. It's about covering up the lying.

So if I understand you correctly, you find it perfectly acceptable for a person to lie on their CV/resume, in order to get the job they are applying for?

What is Woke? It is a term that means "awakened to the needs of others". It means to be well-informed, thoughtful, compassionate, humble and kind. Woke people are keen to make the world a better, fairer place for everyone, But, unfortunately, it has also become a pejorative used by racists, homophobes and misogynists on the political right, to describe people who possess a fully functional moral compass.

You might get back a reply borne of the Libertarian's nirvana where it's the Darwinesque wild west, no rules, might makes right, dog eat dog, survival of the fittest. If you're too dumb to look out for your own best interests, you deserve the fate awaiting.
