How the hell did this happen?!
OK, imagine this… You agree to date a guy based on his dating site profile. Then you find out he lied about his job, his education, how much money he has, where he lives, his ethnicity, maybe even his sexual orientation. Can you even go on a second date with that man?! GOD NO! You will text your friend to make that emergency call to get you out there ASAP!
Okay, now we’re done… What happens to the person you voted for??

After winning the election to Congress in New York, George Santos was revealed to have lied about ALL of it. One New York Times exposé revealed the following statements to be false:
- he works for Goldman book and Citigroup (he has never worked for both)
- he has a degree from Cardinal and Baruch College (he never went to college)
- he is such a successful businessman that he owns 13 properties (he actually doesn’t even own a house of his own – he lives with his sister)
He even claims to be Jewish, which is also not true. Oddly enough, he declared himself the first openly gay non-incumbent Republican elected to the House of Representatives. But another shocking report suggests he was married to a woman until 2020 when he first started running for Congress. Obviously, it’s not uncommon for a gay man to hide his identity, even from himself – or even marry a woman. And no one can prove it’s not true. But in the academic context, he literally lied about everything else, which is great.
Okay, so on Monday night, Santos did the unthinkable — he confirmed ALL OF THIS! He’s lying, and he’s basically slapping himself for it. He told New York Post Office:
“My sin here is to fabricate my résumé. I’m sorry.”
HIGHLIGHTS?? Is he serious about this??
He actually told the outlet that he would remain “effective” as an MP because he always puts the best interests of the voters first. But come on! He doesn’t even trust enough to tell them the truth! He maintains:
“I campaigned for the people’s concerns, not my background… The people elected me to fight for them.”
But they No mate! They elected some people you pretend to be!
He doesn’t even take responsibility seriously, calling Wall Street’s lies a “poor choice of words,” making it clear that he works with a company that has done business with Goldman Sachs and CitiGroup. Serious?!

How about lying about being Jewish?! He told pro-Israel groups he was “a proud Jewish American” and claimed his grandparents were Holocaust survivors – something that turned out to be untrue. You won’t believe this. He says:
“I have never identified myself as a Jew. I am a Catholic. Because I knew my maternal family was of Jewish origin, I said I was ‘Jew’.
OH. Just wow. This is some sitcom-level concealment. Just unbelievable. Literally.
There are also reports in New York Times that a man with Santos’ name and date of birth was arrested for stealing and using a dead person’s checkbook. That man likely faced some serious prison sentences – but disappeared before he could be prosecuted. Is this the same man? It really seems like it…
Santos denies he’s ever been charged, but at this point… how can you believe what he’s talking about, ah, anything??

But it’s not as simple as a guy who lies about everything and doesn’t get caught until it’s too late. There is a great mystery that remains to be unraveled. See, everything about his work may be untrue… but there is a very REAL sum here. See, he’s still only making $55k/year in 2020, apparently, according to his taxes. But all of a sudden this year, he reported having $11 million! You would assume it was a lie like the rest of it, like the property and the job… However, he to be can deposit a donation of nearly $700,000 out of his own pocket into his account. That amount is REAL. It’s not like his ship suddenly landed – remember, the whole thing about being a rich guy on Wall Street is BS So where does the money come from?? Who paid for this seat in Congress??
This is probably the biggest reason why we can’t let fraudulent Randos get into politics. Imagine a foreign power that wants to put someone in our legislature. They can’t use foreign spies… but they maybe buy access to a U.S. citizen. It would have to be an American with absolutely no integrity or no remorse for lying, but… those things clearly exist.
We know, it sounds like a ridiculous movie plot, but honestly… ALL of this is too.
But perhaps the most efficient part?? Follow parcel, this liar’s opponent may not have figured out any of this in time to use it in a debate — but House Republicans already know all about it. that! The outlet says multiple insiders “close to the House GOP leadership” have confirmed they’ve known about it for months! A senior GOP leadership assistant said:
“As for questions about George in general, that’s always what comes up whenever we talk about this race. It was a joke going on at a certain time. This is his second time running for office and these issues we think will be resolved by the voters.”
Except… the voters don’t know. They expect those running for Congress to be considered by… well, ONE!
So what’s going on? Well, Republicans will take control of the House, and since they know and don’t care… it looks like this scam is about to become the first public scam by a US Congressman. But the investigation will also continue. How much more crazy will it get? Guess we’ll find out…
