(AmericanProsperity.com) – Lying is a significant, albeit unfortunate, part of politics. Just about every candidate is dishonest at one time or another. An incoming congressman recently got caught doing just that after an investigation into his past found he exaggerated about his background.
Incoming GOP Congressman George Santos Admits He Lied About Significant Portions of His Background https://t.co/PQ0QsIYEHm

The first openly gay Republican to be elected as a US Representative as a non-incumbent, George Santos, reportedly fabricated several aspects of his life. The revelation comes after The New York Times (NYT) launched an investigation into the incoming congressman.
According to the NYT report, Santos was untruthful about working for the likes of Goldman Sachs and Citigroup. When the outlet contacted them to confirm the Republican’s employment with the financial giants, neither company could find a record of him ever being on the payroll.
Additionally, NYT mentioned how the congressman claimed to have graduated from Baruch College in 2010. Even so, after communicating with the institution, the outlet discovered there was no record of Santos attending the college.
In an exclusive interview with the New York Post, the incoming congressman admitted that he fibbed about several parts of his past. The Republican apologized for falsely enriching his resumé but asserted he wasn’t a criminal.
Santos clarified the confusion surrounding his claim that he worked for Goldman Sachs and Citigroup, explaining the company he was employed with had a “limited partnership” with the two banks. The incoming congressman also admitted that he never graduated from a higher education institution.
Why would Santos lie about his background? Perhaps he was attempting to make himself look better to voters. Whatever the case may be, he’s likely lost the trust of many of his supporters.
