NY Post: GOP Leadership Knew Santos Was A Phony

The New York Post reports:

Senior House Republicans were so keenly aware of alleged inaccuracies and embellishments in Rep-elect George Santos’s professional biography, that the topic became a “running joke,” multiple insiders close to House GOP leadership told The Post.

“As far as questions about George in general, that was always something that was brought up whenever we talked about this race,” said one senior GOP leadership aide.

“It was a running joke at a certain point. This is the second time he’s run and these issues we assumed would be worked out by the voters.”

The Intercept reports:

In 2016 Santos left his home in New York, voted in Florida some nine months later, and was registered back in New York days later, according to public records.

Santos was evicted from a property in New York City in early February 2016, the records show.

Within five days of the eviction court filing, he registered to vote in Florida. He voted in Florida on Election Day and, less than a week later, registered to vote in New York.
