Insane Red's George Santos is Blatant Fraudster

Rep. elect George Santos (Red Team-New York) said he graduated from college, worked at several storied Wall Street firms, owned thirteen properties and was Jewish.  None of it is true.  Zero.

Santos called it "resume embellishment" but it might as well be "political puffery." His handlers knew Santos was selling bullshit.

Senior House Republicans were apparently aware of the inaccuracies and embellishments in the Rep.-elect’s resume, and the topic became a “running joke,” multiple insiders close to House GOP leadership told The Post over the weekend.

“As far as questions about George in general, that was always something that was brought up whenever we talked about this race,” said one senior GOP leadership aide. “It was a running joke at a certain point. This is the second time he’s run and these issues we assumed would be worked out by the voters.

Worked out by voters?  Did not Senior House Republicans have a duty to inform the electorate of Santos' lies?  Worse, the NRCC helped perpetrate his fraud on the public.

Will the Insane Red Team seat this fraudster?  Of course they will.  

This is grotesque, just like the PEU greed that pervades our hallowed halls of government.  Who better to support false PEU asset values than a Congressman elect with a completely fabricated personal history?

This story shows the arrogance of the Insane Reds and their contempt for the U.S. voter.  Rest assured independent voters were conned by this shape shifting power seeker.  They should sue the NRCC for fraud, that is an American vote has any intrinsic value.

Update 12-27-22:  The NRCC scrubbed Santos bio.  He blamed the elite media for his lies.  It's the Insane Red Team.  

The Forward reported on the man who now says he is "Jew-ish.": a position paper shared with Jewish and pro-Israel leaders during the campaign and obtained by the Forward, Santos called himself “a proud American Jew.” 

In the two-page document that the Santos campaign shared earlier this year with pro-Israel groups, including the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), Santos also claimed to “have been to Israel numerous times from educational, business, and leisurely trips.” A brief search of his social media accounts found no images or documentation of his alleged trips to Israel.

It's more than bad form.  It's fraudulent.   Santos is no longer welcome at any Republican Jewish Coalition events.

Update 1-1-23:  Rep. Kevin Brady (Red Team- TX) said:

Santos could be forgiven by the GOP for owning up to the false statements and that it wasn’t up to the party to punish Santos.

The party is complicit in perpetrating the fraud.  It's up to the Red Team to admit their creation and sponsorship of a political fraud.   

Update 1-4-23:  Politico reported last week:’s been crickets. The NYT and CNN this week reached out to leadership offices and the NRCC for comment. There were no responses.

Santos had a lonely day in a crowded House chamber yesterday. 

His new office was once occupied by N.Y. Rep. Chris Collins who was convicted of insider trading in early 2020.   A Trump pardon got Collins out of jail.  A House staffer called the situation like "being in a cartoon."

Update 1-5-23:  Even Santos housing picture is unclear.  Is the new Congressman elect a millionaire or a deadbeat renter?  I hope he actually lives in his House District.

New York Rep-elect George Santos reportedly does not appear to have an office or staff in his district. 

Update 1-6-23:  It appears voters will not get information from Insane Red Team leaders as to how the George Santos fraud was perpetrated.

Update 1-8-23:  Santos is a fraud and worked for a ponzi scheme.  He's the perfect elected official to reveal our ethically broken Congress.  Institutional Risk Analyst reported:

The question is how state and federal regulators, as well as elected officials in both political parties, did not see that the entire construct of crypto currency was at best a form of money laundering and at worse outright fraud.

Update 1-14-22:  Video shows George Santos introducing himself as Anthony Devolder in 2019.  Santos is reflective of societal ills.  One columnist attributed his rise to a lack of local investigative reporting.  Another said:

(Santos) lies are the product of a political system that incentivizes dishonesty, punishes sincerity and is rife with opportunities for petty crooks. In that sense, Santos is the politician that we deserve.

I would offer Santos is there to serve the PEU class.  Politicians Red and Blue love PEU and increasingly, more are one.  Fraudster Santos is there to save PEU preferred "carried interest" taxation, get a regulatory format in place for crypto and steer Uncle Sam's wallet to the greed and leverage boys, as well as his personal pocketbook. 

Update 3-24-23:  The Hill reported:

Santos will formally confess to defrauding a Rio de Janeiro clerk of $1,300 in clothes and shoes in 2008 and pay damages to the victim.

Update 5-23-23:   The House voted to refer Santos to the Ethics Committee vs. expelling him.  The Insane Reds rose to protect their own.

Update 5-25-23:  Three anonymous persons put up $500,000 in bail for George Santos.  It's the insider money funnel, which helped create this deeply flawed fictional character.
