Santos' Latest Lie: 'I Have Lived an Honest Life'

Santos' Latest Lie: 'I Have Lived an Honest Life'

The freshly sworn in Republican has spent his first days in Congress dodging questions about calls for his resignation
Habitual liar George Santos wants everyone to know that despite having fudged his resume, real estate portfolio, religious background, education, and athletic career, he has “lived a very honest life.” 

The freshly sworn in Long Island representative has spent his first days in Congress dodging questions about calls for his resignation, but he appeared on Steve Bannon’s War Room podcast on Thursday, with guest host Rep. Matt Gatez (R-Fla.) questioning him about the origin of more than $700,000 in campaign loans Santos gave himself. 

“I’ll tell you where it didn’t come from,” Santos replied. “It didn’t come from China, Ukraine, or Burisma.”

“Well, that is an answer,” Gaetz replied.

“I’ve worked my entire life, I’ve lived an honest life,” Santos continued. “I’ve never been accused of any sort of bad doing.” 

George Santos has been accused of some sort of “bad doing.” Many times over in fact. 

A December investigation by The New York Times, revealed that Santos had lied about having worked at prestigious financial firms including Citigroup and Goldman Sachs, as well as having attended Baruch College in New York and New York University.

It was revealed on Wednesday that Santos even claimed to have led a championship volleyball team during his fictional enrollment at the former school. Subsequent reports revealed that Santos had falsely claimed to be the descendant of Holocaust survivors, and even went so far as to describe himself as a “proud American Jew” in campaign documents. Santos later admitted to having exaggerated his resume.
