Rep. George Santos, the embattled Republican congressman from Long Island, has now been accused of sexual misconduct and ethics violations by a potential staffer,
who detailed the allegations on Twitter on Friday.
"This isn't about getting attention, it's about holding actions accountable," Derek Myers, 30, told CBS News.
Santos' congressional office referred questions to his attorney, Joe Murray,
