Finishing off George Santos
Okay, Twitter is limping along, the wheels are falling off, it’s increasingly glitchy, making me click “send” at least twice before a tweet will post. Also, Twitter is now littered with hundreds of new fake unverified blue checkmark accounts, thanks to Musk’s deceptive joke of a “Twitter Blue” subscription service. Troll bots are also out in force, yesterday they attacked Ted Lieu and I had to report and block at least two dozen on one Palmer Report tweet alone.
But the Resistance is nothing if not determined to make a difference. Now that it is coming out how badly mainstream media dropped the ball on newly elected Republican scammer George Santos, we must force him to resign and get him arrested for felony fraud.
It wasn’t for lack of trying during the 2022 Midterms, the alarm was sounded by many, including his Democratic challenger Robert Zimmerman’s campaign. Here’s a local September 6, 2022 article warning that Santos, an alleged criminal from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, wanted for elderly fraud and check forgery, filed a false Personal Financial Disclosure Report, with the U.S. Federal Election Commission. The article even points out that it’s a federal felony to make false federal disclosures.
So, let’s make some noise, get on social media, make phone calls, in support of outraged and cheated Long Island voters, and demand the resignation, full investigation, and arrest of this latest Republican fraudster George Santos. Come on Twitter, do your thing!
