The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) denounces George Santos, Congressman-elect from New York after he admitted to having lied about his Jewish identity.
Breitbart News reported Santos won in New York’s third congressional District. He admitted lying about his education, work experience, and religion.
Santos was given a platform to present himself at the RJC leadership meeting last month in Las Vegas. He said that he was raised Catholic but has Jewish roots. According to the Jewish News Syndicate, he can now advocate for and fight on behalf of other Jewish people throughout the country and in my district.
His story was a mess and caused embarrassment for RJC as well as frustration for them. Tuesday was their response:
We are disappointed with Congressman-elect Santos.
Many Republicans and Democrats believe Santos should be fired. He fabricated many details about his life and called the New York Times initial investigation into Santos a political’smear. ”
Some people also note that President Joe Biden was a prolific writer of details about his life.
