Representative-elect George Santos is accused of lying yet again, this time about being sworn in as a member of Congress. Santos’s press team put out a statement that read in part, “US Representative George Santos was sworn in as a member of the United States House of Representatives by the Speaker of the House on January 3rd, 2023.” The lie is obvious on its face since there isn’t currently a Speaker of the House and the biggest news story over the past few days has been about how Republicans have failed to put their differences aside and rally around Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Perhaps this was just a mistake made by a member of Santos’s staff. However, it’s hard to give Santos the benefit of the doubt when he’s lied about everything from his educational and professional background to his personal identity. It remains to be seen whether Santos will ever be sworn in given the controversy he’s dealing with, but it certainly hasn’t happened yet.
