Congressman-elect lies about..well everything

| December 29, 2022

Congressman-elect George Santos (R-NY)

This is stolen valor adjacent. He didn’t so much steal any military valor, but he’s certainly stolen a lot from the suffering of the Jewish People.

George Santos, a Republican out of Long Island, won an upset victory against an incumbent Democrat. Of course, nobody in the media looked into any of his claims until well after it would have done something to affect the electorate. Namely that he lied about his education, his work history, his heritage, and probably everything else too.

Breitbart has several reports on the matter;

The New York Times examined the narrative Santos, 34, presented to voters during his successful campaign for a congressional district that straddles the north shore suburbs of Long Island and a sliver of Queens.

The Times uncovered records in Brazil that show Santos was the subject of a criminal investigation there in 2008 over allegations that he used stolen checks to buy items at an clothing shop in the city of Niteroi. At the time, Santos would have been 19. The Times quoted local prosecutors as saying the case was dormant because Santos had never appeared in court.

Santos continued to deny that he was being sought by authorities in South America.

Democrats pounced, calling Santos a serial fabulist and demanded he voluntarily not take office.

In an interview with the New York Post earlier this week, Santos apologized for his fabrications but downplayed them as “sins” over embellishing his resume, adding that “we do stupid things in life.”

He admitted to lying about working for Citigroup and Goldman Sachs, as well as having earned a degree in finance and economics from Baruch College in New York.

Beyond his resume, Santos invented a life story that has also come under question, including claims that his grandparents “fled Jewish persecution in Ukraine, settled in Belgium, and again fled persecution during WWII.”

During his campaign, he referred to himself as “a proud American Jew.”

He backtracked on that claim, saying he never intended to claim Jewish heritage, which would have likely raised his appeal among his district’s significant ranks of Jewish voters.

“I am Catholic,” he told the Post. “Because I learned my maternal family had a Jewish background I said I was ‘Jew-ish.’”

And here;

Rep.-elect George Santos, R-N.Y., admitted Monday that he lied about his job experience and college education during his successful campaign for a seat in the U.S. House.

In an interview with the New York Post, Santos said: “My sins here are embellishing my resume. I’m sorry.”

He also told the newspaper: “I campaigned talking about the people’s concerns, not my resume” and added, “I intend to deliver on the promises I made during the campaign.”

The New York Times raised questions last week about the life story that Santos, 34, had presented during his campaign.

The Queens resident had said he had obtained a degree from Baruch College in New York, but the school said that couldn’t be confirmed.

On Monday, Santos acknowledged: “I didn’t graduate from any institution of higher learning. I’m embarrassed and sorry for having embellished my resume.”

He added: “I own up to that. … We do stupid things in life.”

Santos had also said he had worked for Citigroup and Goldman Sachs, but neither company could find any records verifying that.

Santos told the Post he had “never worked directly” for either financial firm, saying he had used a “poor choice of words.”

Sounds like he’ll fit in perfectly in D.C. None of them ever tell it straight and truthful either. Another article I can’t find immediately said he had a dog and cat charity that may or may not have been legit.

Give the guy some credit. At least he did not claim to be an Honorary Chief Petty Officer.

Green Thumb

And he did not lie about being a turd.

I see a bright future at All-Points Logistics for this individual.

Demo-rats howling he should be DQ-ed for his made-up backstory while fawning over Biden with diminished mental capacity and a lengthily history of lies is laughable.
If he didn’t break any laws, then he’ll have to reconcile with the voters come next election.
My guess is if serves them well, he’ll be re-elected.
Everybody knows ethics & morality are NOT required to serve in Congress.

Does he jump out of airplanes in a clown suit?

The good thing here is that he is a well known confessed liar at the start. Since he can no longer pretend to be anything other a greasy eel, there is nowhere to go but up.

Kind of ironic that he was able to secure the seat when JR Majewski’s campaign crashed like the aircraft of a disbarred attorney in the Florida Everglades. The opposition research machine in New York needs some calibration.

May be a Democrat who ran as a Republican just to screw things up and be this way about it. If so, they knew.

With all that lying you would assume he was a Democrat if you didn’t know he was Republican.

Demonrats and Repugnacants…no difference in the majority. What few that run/get (s)elected that are honest and sincerely want to do what is right for the Country are either corrupted by the machine or persecuted by the sleaze media. The Founders weep.

Considering that Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton did the whole pistols at dawn thing, I’m pretty sure our founders would do more than just slap these fools.

Hack Stone dated a few Jewish girls while in High School. Does that make him Jew’ish?

5JC

Nope, depending upon how long, just really patient.

Hack Stone

Hack Stone could have married into royalty. On the first date she told Hack that she was a Jewish Princess. That should have been a warning.

Hack Stone

How soon until he entertains us with stories about him gaining the respect of the local gang-banger, Cocoa Puffs?

24 hours after he meets with Danang Dick about that time they did toys for tots in Saigon.

Berliner

I think the only “Saigon” Danang Dick-less saw was on a restaurant sign.

Wikipedia:
Blumenthal received five draft deferments during the Vietnam War. Blumenthal enlisted in the United States Marine Corps Reserve which, The New York Times reported, “virtually guaranteed that he would not be sent to Vietnam”. During his 2010 Senate campaign, news report videos that showed Blumenthal claiming he had served in Vietnam created a controversy.  He later apologized to voters for remarks about his military service which he said had not been “clear or precise”.

Berliner

Solution: Expulsion is the most serious form of disciplinary action that can be taken against a Member of Congress. The United States Constitution Article 1 Section 5 Clause 2 provides that “Each House [of Congress] may determine the Rules of its proceedings, punish its members for disorderly behavior, and, with the concurrence of two-thirds, expel a member.” The processes for expulsion differ somewhat between the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Lets see how many Demoncrats vote to retain the lying piece of Doo-Doo and elect to retain and censure him.

USMC Steve

No basis for any of it. Not unless they shitcan every single socialist democrat that did it too, which is to say almost all of them.

I thought my sarcasm about Da Nang Dicks Vietnamless service was fairly obvious.

From a 20 November 2019 article:

“DEVOLDER SANTOS ANNOUNCES CANDIDACY FOR CONGRESS”

https://www.qgazette.com/articles/devolder-santos-announces-candidacy-for-congress/

“He also founded and ran a nonprofit 501(c)3 called Friends of Pets United (FOPU) from 2013 – 2018, an animal rescue and TNR (trap, neuter and release) organization.”

He probably worked for PeTA once:

“I said I was ‘Jew-ish.’”

That is “define ‘is’ ” territory.

JustALurkinAround

This guy, or his handlers, deserves a raise after the jew-ish reply. That is fucking genius!!!

On an aside, the hyphen is my second favorite symbol next to the semicolon.

The period is my least favorite because it fucks up one week of mine out of every fucking month.

Anonymous

That depends on what the definition of “jewish” is, to paraphrase Bill Clinton.

Forest Bondurant

He’s a politician. Lying is a prerequisite for that line of work.

Fuck him and the rest of ’em.

Green Thumb

Yep.

Both parties have this problem. They just want to get their candidate in office no matter how big of a shitbag they are.

This is why I am more of an independent.

USMC Steve

Sadly, it is necessary now. If the GOP keeps sticking to that high moral ground while the socialist democrats keep using more effective tactics, then they can all be morally ruled by socialist democrats along with the rest of them. Basic principle of warfare is to use better tactics than your enemy or you lose all the time.

He just got there sooner than most:

Joe Isuzu had more charisma and credibility.

QMC

Every other Politician from that area seems to lie about everything under the sun, so he should fit right in.

(See AOC, Dick Blumenthal, Chuck Schumer, Andrew Cuomo, etc, etc)

SFC D

“Democrats pounced, calling Santos a serial fabulist”.

Why are Republicans not “pouncing”, calling Santos a lying sack of shit? What mechanism is in place to bounce this fraudulent fuckstick out on his ass?

UpNorth

He definitely should be bounced. Right after Biden, Blumenthal and several other dems. He can follow them out the door.

“….said he had a dog and cat charity….”
Does he keep them on his car roof?

Slow Joe

The media only does its job when it is against Republitards.
When it is the Demrats lying, which is like 99.99999 of the time, they keep quiet and disappear from the headlines faster than Hunter’s Laptop.

CDR D

Yes. They are so obvious, and they don’t even realize it.

That known pillar of truth and honesty and former member of the Democrat Security Service, previously known as the FBI, Peter Strzok, is once again claiming Russian collusion in this turd’s election:

I can’t wait until Peter Stroke is no longer useful to the cabal. He will commit suicide with two bullets to the head. I look forward to reading his obituary with great satisfaction.

USMC Steve

Hey, it worked once before, until it didn’t.

Forest Bondurant

Yeah, and criticizing the FBI is now considered “disinformation”.

A Proud Infidel®️™️

Given how quickly he lies about everything, I think it’s safe to assume he’ll be a RINO.

jeff LPH 3 63-66

I don’t see nothing wrong with this
Example- bidens lies and it’s okay
Santos lies and it’s not okay

Devtun

Yeah ok, another self-serving snake oil charmer politician. C’mon man. It’s not like lyin’ Georgie left a woman stranded in a submerged car to drown.

Forest Bondurant

^^^ Precisely. That piece of shit lied by omission and was referred to as the “Lion of the Senate”.

Odie

Why no opposition research on this guy? Surely the Democrats aren’t this dumb unless it was by design..

And with this story beginning to dominate the news, what other kind of shit are they doing behind the scenes while this distraction plays out.

Top W Kone

He ran against the same person in 2020 and lost by a few thousand votes.

His opponent knew he was a serious challenger and never looked into his claims.

That tells me the guy deserved to lose for being incompetent.

My father ran for a state seat and his opponent fact checked every claim. But his military record took too long to get back so he questioned my dads service. Which pissed off the county party chair of the opponent who had served with him in Vietnam.

NHSparky

IOW, he’s just not as good at hiding his bullshit as the other 534 members of Congress.

But he still needs to go.
