GOP Rep. Santos Admits He Dressed As a Woman for 'Fun'

New York Rep. George Santos (R) admitted to dressing as a woman but denied accusations of being a drag queen following pictures of him dressed as a female.

The confession came after accounts of his actions in Brazil circulated as part of several new pieces of information about the congressman following his election.

"No, I was not a drag queen in Brazil, guys. I was young, and I had fun at a festival. Sue me for having a life," Santos told reporters.

"Santos, who is openly gay, had repeatedly tried to shoot down the reports of his cross-dressing past, which emerged last week after a photo from 2008 was posted online by Eula Rochard, a drag queen in Brazil and former friend of Santos," the New York Post reported.

"A video also surfaced of what appeared to be the freshman rep clad in a black dress and sunglasses, boasting about performing as a drag queen at the Pride parade in the Rio suburb of Niteroi in 2005," it added.

"The most recent obsession from the media claiming that I am a drag Queen or 'performed' as a drag Queen is categorically false," Santos tweeted.

"The media continues to make outrageous claims about my life while I am working to deliver results," he added. "I will not be distracted nor fazed by this."

In addition to the most recent accusations, Santos has admitted to fabricating many aspects of his campaign resume, including claims that he worked for two well-known New York companies and his claim that he graduated from college, though he did not.

The accusations have led to many calls for Santos to step down from Congress. So far, the calls have remained unanswered, with Santos receiving committee assignments as part of his first month in office.
