Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE) said he would resign if he had been caught telling lies like Rep. George Santos (R-NY).

During an appearance on ABC, host Jonathan Karl asked Bacon what Santos should do after he was busted for "numerous" falsehoods.

"I would resign," Bacon said. "I wouldn't be able to face my voters after having gone through that. But this is between him and his constituents, largely. They elected him in and they have to deal with him on that. But I don't think his re-election chances will be that promising."

"That may be the understatement of the day," Karl concluded.
