GOP Rep. George Santos Accused of Fabricating Background Information

New York Republican Rep. George Santos may have fabricated parts of his resume, according to a new report.

The newly-elected House member is now facing scrutiny over details that don't seem to add up.

"Santos made a name for himself in this past midterm election by clinching a victory on the Democrat-controlled Long Island, becoming the first openly gay Republican to win a U.S. House seat as a non-incumbent," Breitbart News reported.

"While campaigning, Santos described himself as being the 'full embodiment of the American dream,' citing his roots as being from Brazilian immigrants before rising to the top of the economic food chain as a 'seasoned' Wall Street financier and investor with 'a family-owned real estate portfolio of 13 properties and an animal rescue charity that saved more than 2,500 dogs and cats,' according to the Times," it added.

Santos released a statement following the report, but did not specifically deny any of the claims.

"George Santos is out with a statement that doesn't refute a single part of the NYT story about his many, many alleged lies," Marisa Kabas tweeted.

While his background shows his wealth is not made up, some of the particular details remain in dispute.

However, some suggest that the Times and its liberal bias may be out for an unnecessary attack. For example, part of its focus was whether Santos really helped as many pets as his resume claimed.

The critique is worth a look, but Santos doesn't seem too worried about the issues involved.

Santos will more likely be concerned about his first days in Washington next month as he seeks to start strong as a new leader for his state.
