A New York Times investigation has found that incoming Republican Congressman George Santos may have lied about his employment history, education, charity work, and even his residence. Santos claimed to have worked at Goldman Sachs and Citigroup, but both companies say they have no record of him working there. The Times could find no record of a charity that he claimed to own, and a friend of a group that was supposed to benefit from a fundraiser he organized said they never received any of the money. Santos has reportedly faced multiple evictions and claimed to be a landlord, but there is no evidence of him owning any properties. He also claimed to have graduated from Baruch College and NYU, but both schools say they have no record of him attending. Santos has also claimed to have lost four employees in the 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting, but a review found no association between any of the victims and any of the organizations he claims to be affiliated with. It’s difficult to predict what the consequences will be for Santos since he’s already been voted in and it’s not all that likely that his fellow Republicans will hold him accountable.
