I moaned about Republican Congressional candidate George Santos before the 2022 midterm elections, because the openly gay Long Islander was a Trump fan, an abortion opponent, and a supporter of Florida's Don't Say Gay law. I moaned about him after he won, because he beat the openly gay Democratic candidate and flipped a critical seat.
Turns out I'd not yet begun to moan.
We now know Santos the candidate lied, and bigly, about his education and his employment. His claims that his grandparents escaped the Holocaust and he's Jewish are such fabrications that the Republican Jewish Coalition wants nothing to do with him.
In an interview yesterday, Santos said he was "sorry for having embellished my resume," but he intends to be sworn in. That Bible better not be combustible.
There are potentially more revelations ahead concerning his finances. For my part, there's only one thing I want to hear he lied about: being gay.
