Here’s Some Stupid to Start Your Day

H/T Scissorhead D-Cap

Sorry Democrats, it doesn’t matter how much George Santos lied about his bio, K-Mac is going to keep him in the Congress because Rep-elect Santos has pledged to vote for K-Mac’s Speakership.

George Santos, a Long Island Republican who won a pivotal U.S. House race in November, acknowledged Monday night that he embellished his biography, seeking to explain his actions by saying in a radio interview that “a lot of people overstate in their résumés.”

Embellished is doing a lot of heavy lifting there. There is almost nothing true in his campaign bio, and it seems likely that our toothless FEC might actually be forced to do… something?

Candidates are required to file accurate reports of their finances with the clerk of the House. If a candidate knowingly files a form that is false, it could violate a number of laws, according to the nonpartisan Campaign Legal Center.

The attorney general may pursue civil or criminal penalties against someone who “knowingly and willfully falsifies” financial disclosure statements filed to the House, according to the instruction guide by the House Ethics Committee on filing such statements. Fines can reach up to $250,000 and imprisonment can be as long as five years, according to the guide. And the House can take “additional action,” according to the guide.

As I said, don’t hold your breath. K-Mac needs his support.

And I STILL want to know how he ended up at the Schlapp’s house for the Christmas Party also attended by SCOTUS Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the virgin mayor of keg city.

    Well now. Since he has confessed his sins I’m sure he will receive absolution.

  3. Um, how about his shaky claim to residency? His really dodgy finances? His ‘family real estate’ business with no known real estate holdings?

    Also, all the bemoaning about ‘why didn’t the local news do any of this before the election? Well weirdly enough, they did:

  5. The financial issue is what fascinates me–I don’t actually have a problem believing he doesn’t have much of an income all things considered, but he went from bouncing rent checks to loaning his campaign tons of money: from where? Did that money get laundered through him? In other words: who’s out there buying congressional potato heads and snapping new features on until they win something?

    That “Jew-ish” thing originated in a Seth Myers comedy video: he said though he wasn’t Jewish, his Jewish mother-in-law wasn’t appalled because his name and appearance were “Jew-ish.” So R Santos’ life steals from art—artlessly and creepily.
