George Santos runs and hides
As if the George Santos story could not get any crazier, it just did. Kevin McCarthy has now admitted that Santos is under investigation by the House Ethics Committee. At the rate Santos is going, he might even surpass Donald Trump in the number of investigations into him.
But that’s not all of it On Tuesday, Santos found some rather unwelcome visitors outside his door. “Oh my God.” Those were gasps from his staffers as they confronted the surprise outside their door. That was George’s own constituents.
That’s right. A group of them arrived in DC, hopping mad and calling for the resignation of the pathological liar. And what did Santos do? He hid – like the coward he is. “We want a vote to expel!” The voices were furious, with good reason. “Respond to us!”
Santos, who excels at acting like a wise-ass, must have been scared of his own voters — because instead of meting them at the door – he had his staffers respond instead. If the words “coward”, “liar,” and con artist” are going through your head, congratulations. You are not alone.
And the group had a petition with them — of signatures demanding his resignation. “We are disgusted; we are tired of this circus,” said one constituent. There were about fifty altogether. Now fifty really isn’t a huge number. It certainly did not warrant George Santos refusing to talk to his own voters.
But that is what he did. These voters calling themselves “concerned citizens of congressional district 3” said they wanted to hammer home the message that they want him out and do not want him as their representative.
And he will be out. George Santos isn’t long for congress, and I am far from the only one saying this. And I feel — very deeply — for his voters who were bamboozled. But I must admit it IS rather fun watching Santos try desperately to cling to his seat. It’s not happening. I am guessing three or four months at the most.
