George Santos Didn’t Disclose 2019 Divorce With A Woman
December 22, 2022

Openly gay Republican congressman-elect George Santos's life is interesting. But huge chunks of his life appear to have been fabricated. And now there's more to add to the pile of deceit.

Via The Daily Beast:

Santos, who claims he has "never experienced discrimination in the Republican Party," broke barriers this year when he became the first openly gay non-incumbent GOP candidate elected to Congress.

But according to court records obtained by The Daily Beast, Santos appears to be the subject of a previously unacknowledged Sept. 2019 divorce with a woman in Queens County, New York. The divorce—which Santos has not discussed publicly—adds new uncertainty to his already shaky biographical and political claims.

"I am openly gay, have never had an issue with my sexual identity in the past decade, and I can tell you and assure you, I will always be an advocate for LGBTQ folks," Santos told USA Today in October, responding to criticism about his support for Florida's so-called "Don't Say Gay Bill" signed into law this year by GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis.

Santos filed for his divorce, then less than two weeks later, he filed the official paperwork to launch his 2020 campaign. According to his campaign bio, he is married to a man, and they live together on Long Island, but he's kept this previous marriage to a woman out of the public eye, according to the outlet.

I'm getting Herschel Walker vibes from this guy. Next, we'll find out that he funded a couple of abortions and has secret children that he fathered with different women.
