Rep. George Santos, R-N.Y, may hold a high seat in U.S. power, but the list of lies following him is getting longer by the day.
Here is a review of some of his false claims:
Santos said he graduated with a degree in economics and finance from Baruch College, but the school said it has no records of him attending. His campaign biography stated that he worked at Goldman Sachs and Citigroup, but both companies confirmed to the New York Times that’s untrue. Santos claimed he founded an animal charity that saved 2,500 dogs and cats. However, there were no IRS records, and no evidence of the charity being registered.
That’s not all. He wrote on Twitter that 9/11 claimed his mother’s life, but visa documents appear to show she was in Brazil in 2001. Speaking of family, he said his family survived the Holocaust, but genealogy records reviewed by CNN show no signs of Jewish heritage in his family.
More recently claims began swirling that George Santos performed as a drag queen in Brazil, which he called categorically false. Days later he said, “sue me for having a life.”
While some of these may seem like small lies, it’s only a fraction of the lies Santos is being accused of. Now, he’s the subject of yet another more serious controversy. He said $700,000 in loans for his campaign came from his personal funds. Now, that claim is under question. GOP leadership has expressed some call to action if Santos in fact broke the law.
