Discredited Congressional Rep Also Claimed Mom Was At 9/11

(PatriotWise.com) – House Democrats are demanding that Rep. George Santos (R-NY) resign over the lies he told about his resume and background while campaigning for office, and the irony isn’t lost on those who have for years called out the repeated falsehoods told Joe Biden.

Santos, who defeated Democrat Robert Zimmerman in the November midterms, had falsely claimed to be a graduate of Baruch College who worked for Goldman Sachs and Citibank. He also claimed to be Jewish (he’s not).

Santos’ official campaign website claimed that his mother, Fatima Devolder, was working in the South Tower of the World Trade Center on 9/11. And while she survived the terrorist attack, she “unfortunately passed away a few years later.”

According to CBS News, Santos’ mother didn’t die a “few years” after September 11, 2001. Instead, she lived 15 years longer, dying in 2016.

According to the priest from the Santos family’s church, the supposed wealthy Goldman Sachs executive told him that his family couldn’t afford to pay for his mother’s funeral.

Some of Santos’ lies were initially exposed in a recent report in the New York Times.

Last Monday, Santos admitted to the New York Post that he made stuff up. He told the Post he was “embarrassed” and “sorry for having embellished my resume.”

Of course, Santos’ apology hasn’t done a thing to stop Democrat lawmakers from demanding he resign his seat. California Congressman Eric Swalwell went so far as to demand that Santos not be permitted to be sworn in on January 3.

In his 50-year career in Washington, Joe Biden has told so many lies about his resume and biography, it’s hard to keep track of them all. And even after his lies get called out, Joe Biden continues to repeat them.

Congressional Democrats may want to think twice about dying on this hill, given the lies told, not just by Joe Biden, but by faux Indian Elizabeth Warren and fake Vietnam vet Dick Blumenthal.
