The former boyfriend of George Santos told CNN it was no surprise to him that Santos got himself elected to Congress. "What he always looked for was fame and power," said Pedro Vilarva. "That's all he cared about and he got it."
Despite the plethora of calls for the Long Island Republican to resign over his exhaustive lying, Santos will stay put, his ex firmly believes. "His ego is too big," said Vilarva.
Fame. Power. Lies. Ego. Republican. Good Lord, George Santos is Donald Trump's Mini-Me.
I've held out hope that George Santos isn't actually gay. He lied about everything on his way to becoming a congressman from New York, so why not that?
Today I read that Brazilian prosecutors are pursuing fraud charges against Santos, who admitted to stealing a man's checkbook, which had been in the possession of Santos's mother, in 2008. According to CNN, Santos used the checkbook "to purchase clothing and shoes."

George Santos has updated his lie about the Pulse club shooting.
He previously said the four victims had been his past employees.
Now he’s claiming the four victims were going to be his future employees.
In other words, he meant to say employee-ish.

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.

Democrat Robert Zimmerman and Republican George Santos are battling for the seat in New York's 3rd Congressional District. One thing is clear: Whoever wins, the seat will be occupied by a gay man.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in American history, two out LGBTQ congressional candidates are facing off in a general election.
"It was going to happen sooner or later," Donald Haider-Markel, a University of Kansas political science professor, told NBC News. "The question was always finding an LGBTQ Republican who can get support in a primary."
The question was always finding an LGBTQ Republican, full stop.
Somebody contact headquarters. This boy's gay card needs to be revoked.

I just voted in the Democratic Primary in NYC's West Village. My polling place is so liberal that instead of I Voted stickers we were given hemp ponchos, long silver braids, vintage bicycles, Birkenstocks and NPR totebags filled with apples and back issues of The New Yorker.

At a recent right-wing conference held in upstate New York, George Langdon IV, a Republican member of the Albany County Legislature, opined that homosexuality goes against God's procreative plan. "Sorry, when you have homosexual relationships, it’s not perpetual. Give them an island, they’ll be gone in 40 years."
After a video of his remarks circulated, Langdon apologized and resigned, having incensed many locals with the suggestion that gays be sent to an island.
I don't know, though. If the island were, say, Maui, I'd be willing to talk.
