George Santos’ lies include claiming that he is not a criminal despite being wanted in Brazil

After winning the 2022 midterm elections for New York’s 3rd congressional district on Long Island, it was discovered that George Santos was a habitual liar.

George Santos was revealed to be a pathological liar after he won the 2022 midterm elections to represent New York's 3rd congressional district. His lies and fabricated stories span almost every topic from his education background to his family's heritage
His fabrications and lies cover practically every aspect of his life, from his educational background to his family’s lineage and criminal history.

Santos switched the New York seat from blue to red and is on course to become the first out gay Republican member of Congress.

On December 19, The New York Times was the first to break the story of Santos’ resume alterations. They noted that there was no indication that Santos had ever worked for Citigroup or Goldman Sachs and that he had never attended Baruch College.

New York’s federal, state, and municipal prosecutors are investigating him, while additional allegations about his past arise.

Now Brazil has reactivated a 2008 criminal investigation against George Santos for check fraud, after suspending it because they were unable to locate him.

The congressman-elect said in a 2021 tweet that, '9/11 claimed my mother's life,' however Fatima Devolder died in 2016 of cancer and it's unclear if it was 9/11-related. It's also unclear if she was an executive or a housekeeper

Santos claims Ukrainian Jewish ancestry.

In one interview, Santos revealed that his mother’s maiden name was the historically Jewish Zabrovsky.

In February, Santos told Fox Digital that his grandfather was born in Kyiv and left in the late 1920s to immigrate to Belgium, where he met my grandmother and built a family. For many people who are descendants of World War II refugees or Holocaust survivors, many names or documents were changed in the name of survival, as was the case with our family.

After winning the midterm elections in 2022 to represent New York’s 3rd congressional district, George Santos’ pathological lying was uncovered. His fabrications and lies cover nearly every subject, from his educational background to his family’s history.

According to the Forward, there have been no successful efforts to identify Jewish or Ukrainian ancestry in his family history.CNN reported late Wednesday that the New York Republican never attended Horace Mann School (pictured), an elite private school in the Bronx

In a different interview in 2020, Santos revealed that he was raised by a white Caucasian Belgian immigrant mother. However, Fatima Devolder, the mother of Santos, was born in Brazil, according to her 2016 obituary.

In addition, recently rediscovered messages indicate that Santos, a Brazilian-American, claimed on Twitter in July 2020 that he was mixed, or ‘Caucasian and black.’

Because his mother was a victim of the terrorist attack, Santos tweeted in July 2021 that he was ‘blocking’ an account with the handle ‘9/11 was a victimless atrocity’

After the user responded to a tweet from Santos about immigration, he said, “9/11 took my mother’s life… thus I’m blocking so I’ll never have to see this again.”

However, according to her obituary, Santos’ mother passed away in December 2016, which is more than 15 years after the attack.

In a December 2021 tweet, he also revealed the actual date: ‘This December 23rd marks five years since I lost my best friend and mentor. Mom, you will always be in my heart.

Santos’ campaign website stated that his mother’survived the sad events of September 11th’ in her office in the South Tower of the World Trade Center and ‘lost her fight with cancer a few years later.’Public records, however, show that Santos was previously married to a woman named Uadla Vieira, a native of Brazil, until 2019

According to a New York Times article, Santos’ mother was a domestic servant or housekeeper.

On his campaign website, his mother was touted as a prominent executive.

The website adds, “George’s work ethic comes from his mother, who rose from little to become the first female executive at a major financial firm.”

The congressman-elect tweeted in 2021, ‘9/11 took my mother’s life,’ however Fatima Devolder died of cancer in 2016, and it is unknown whether her death was related to 9/11. Also unknown is if she was an executive or a housekeeper.

Santos stated that he attended a renowned New York preparatory school.

Representative-elect stated that he attended Horace Mann School, a prestigious private school in the Bronx with an annual fee of $59.800.

‘He began Horace Mann preparatory school in the Bronx, but did not graduate due to financial hardships for his family,’ stated a 2019 biography during his first unsuccessful bid for Congress.

It adds, “During his senior year, he received his GED.”

CNN reports that the school stated he never went.

Ed Adler, a representative for Horace Mann Prep School, stated, “We have examined the records, and there is no indication that George Santos (or any alias) attended Horace Mann.”

CNN claimed late Wednesday that the New York Republican never attended the Bronx’s top private Horace Mann School (shown).

On his resume, former contact center employee Santos lists employment at Goldman Sachs and Citigroup.

Santos previously stated that he worked for Goldman Sachs and Citigroup on Wall Street, but he now claims he used a ‘bad choice of words’ when defining his association with the two companies.

Between October 2011 and July 2012, the incoming representative worked at a DISH Satellite call center.

In an attempt to support his deception, he also worked for LinkBridge, where Santos claimed he did business with Goldman and Citi and facilitated ‘capital introductions’ between clients and investors.

Santos stated that he had “never worked directly” for either company.

Santos’ claim to his family’s ten-plus property real estate portfolio

In February 2021, Santos wrote on Twitter that’my family and I’ had not received rent on 13 houses he purportedly owned.

A study of property taxes owed or paid in the state of New York reveals no indication of ownership.

He asserted having a brain tumor.

On March 30, 2020, at the beginning of the U.S. coronavirus pandemic, a YouTube interview with Santos titled ‘George Santos: A Corona Story’ was published. Since then, the video has been made private.

In the video, Santos tells two men, one wearing a ‘Guns and Freedom’ hat and the other seated beside a ‘Don’t Tread on Me’ flag, that he “battled a brain tumor,” according to Newsweek.

Regarding his health, Santos stated, “I suffer from immunodeficiency and acute chronic bronchitis.” I also fought a brain tumor a few years ago and underwent radiation treatment, which significantly reduces your immune in general.’

Claimed to have lost four employees in the Pulse nightclub shooting.

In an interview with WNYC, Santos claimed that four ‘people who work for me’ were among the 49 victims of the June 2016 mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

No connection has yet been established between Santos and any of the victims.

He claimed to be the founder of a charitable organization.

Santos stated that he formed Friends of Pets United, a tax-exempt animal rights organization that rescued over 2,500 cats and dogs.

However, neither the IRS nor the New York or New Jersey attorney general’s offices were able to locate records proving Friends of Pets United’s registration as a nonprofit organization.

However, according to public documents, Santos was previously married to a Brazilian woman named Uadla Vieira until 2019.

On his way to pay rent in 2016, he claimed $2,250 was stolen in a mugging, but police have no record of the occurrence.

In 2016, Santos said he was robbed on his way to pay his Queens apartment rent.

In an affidavit opposing eviction, he claimed $2,250 was stolen. According to Gothamist, he wrote: “I was robbed at approximately 1:15 p.m. on January 15, 2016, on Queens Boro Plaza, while I was on my way to pay the attorney.”

I have requested a stop payment at the check cashing location located at 31st Street and 23rd Avenue in Astoria.

“I am unable to provide a police report today because I was instructed to return on Tuesday to retrieve it.”

The NYPD has no record of the occurrence, according to the news source.

As a result of the litigation, Santos eventually moved out of the flat and paid the remainder of the rent he owed.

He asserts that he is not a criminal.

In 2008, Santos was accused of using a stolen checkbook to fraudulently spend over $700. According to reports, the incident occurred in a clothing store in the Brazilian city of Niterói.

After the event, Santos reportedly confessed the following year on a Brazilian social media platform, writing, ‘I know I messed up, but I want to pay.’

In 2022, however, the new representative informed the New York Post that he had never committed a crime.

Santos stated, “I am not a criminal here, in Brazil or anywhere else in the globe.”
