George Santos: Hey, Guys, Sorry I Lied About My Entire Life

Openly gay Republican congressman-elect George Santos appears to have fabricated large chunks of his life. The more you read about him, the more you realize that his entire life is a lie. The walls started closing in on George as they do on habitual liars, and people wanted answers.

So, George finally came clean. He's been lying about his life for his entire adult life and he has run out of lies to tell his supporters.

"I am not a criminal," Santos told the New York Post. "This [controversy] will not deter me from having good legislative success. I will be effective. I will be good."

"My sins here are embellishing my resume. I'm sorry," Santos said.

Santos confessed he had "never worked directly" for Goldman Sachs and Citigroup, chalking that fib up to a "poor choice of words."

E-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g was a lie:

The 34-year-old now claims instead that a company called Link Bridge, where he worked as a vice president did business with both of the financial giants.

"I will be clearer about that. It was stated poorly," Santos said of the lie.

At Link Bridge, Santos said, he helped make "capital introductions" between clients and investors, and Goldman Sachs and Citigroup were "LPS, Limited Partnerships" that his company dealt with.

He also admitted that he never graduated from any college, despite previously claiming to have received a degree from Baruch in 2010.

"I didn't graduate from any institution of higher learning. I'm embarrassed and sorry for having embellished my resume," he told the outlet. "I own up to that … We do stupid things in life."

That's not embellishing a resume. That's a lie about who you are, and what you've done in life.

"I never claimed to be Jewish," Santos said. "I am Catholic. Because I learned my maternal family had a Jewish background I said I was `Jew-ish.'"

What in the absolute hell:

Santos also acknowledged being a deadbeat tenant in Sunnyside, Queens, where The Times reported he was ordered by a judge to pay more than $12,000 to a former landlord who claimed non-payment of several months of rent — as well as that Santos had tried to pass a check that bounced.

On Monday, Santos claimed that at the time of the lawsuit, his family was deep in medical debt from his mother's cancer battle.

"We were engulfed in debt," he said. "We had issues paying rent at the time. It's the vulnerability of being human. I am not embarrassed by it."

Santos said his mother died of cancer on Dec. 23, 2016, after living with him at the Queens apartment and acknowledged the judgement against him.

Asked if he ever actually paid the arrears, Santos admitted: "We didn't pay it off. I completely forgot about it."

Santos also admitted to lying when he claimed that he owned 13 different properties, saying he now resides at his sister's place in Huntington but is looking to purchase his own place.

Santos admitted that he didn't graduate from CUNY Baruch or any other college.

Who paid for this shitshow?

Santos was part of the red trickle that was supposed to be a massive tsunami, and he's just another Republican liar. How embarrassing for the GOP.

He must not be seated.
