Lying Illustrated: George Santos
In recognition of outstanding accomplishment in the field of lying
- George Santos Admits to Lying About College and Work History. The congressman-elect confirmed The New York Times’s findings that he had not graduated from college or worked at two major Wall Street firms, as he had claimed. - NYT
- Congressman-elect George Santos lied about grandparents fleeing anti-Jewish persecution during WWII - Forward
- Madcap Details Emerge of Santos’s Criminal Past In Brazil - Talking Points Memo
- A NEW GENERATION OF REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP - WayBack Machine
NRCC amplified Santos' lies
A bio praising Congressman Santos on the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) website, shamelessly plays into the hard scrapple story of an immigrant boy done good, so to speak. “George’s family embodies the American dream – where anyone can work hard, play by the rules, achieve success, and help others.” the NRCC bio claims.
Follow the money
"Santos registered the Devolder Organization LLC in Florida back in May 2021. On his congressional disclosure form he reported $750,000 in income from the company and between $1 million and $5 million in dividends. This compares with $55,000 in income he reported two years earlier from a different employer when he ran for the same seat in 2020. But the company was dissolved in September 2022, the same month as the disclosure form was filed, because the company never filed an annual report. Just today, Florida records show that Santos has filed documents to have his company reinstated." - Talking Points Memo
Where did the money behind Santos' campaign really come from? "The lack of financial disclosures related to Devolder Organization’s business to justify the $750,000 base salary Santos claims, and seven-figure dividend payments caught the eye of the Campaign Legal Center – a political watchdog group. “This report raises red flags because no clients are reported for a multimillion-dollar client services company,” Vice President Kedric Payne said. “The congressman-elect should explain what’s going on.” - Occupy Democrats
TakeAway: Demand George Santos who deceive voters by blatantly lying isn't seated in Congress.
