Defiant Santos to announce reelection campaign

According to a source, Representative George Santos, who has been accused of repeatedly lying about his personal and professional life, will announce his reelection campaign on Monday in Washington D.C.

Despite facing calls from members of both political parties to resign, Santos has reportedly been reaching out to donors and supporters, and believes he can raise between $500,000 to $750,000 in the second quarter of 2023, the New York Post reported.

One of Santos’ top donors, entrepreneur Josh Eisen, expressed the possibility of supporting him again, stating “Many of us Americans are willing to accept all sorts of resurrection, perhaps Representative George Santos will be another.”

Santos is currently under investigation by both the House Ethics Committee for his false background claims and by federal authorities for his campaign’s financial activities.

Among the voices of criticism directed towards Representative George Santos are some of his most vocal detractors, who belong to his own local Republican party.

Joseph Cairo, the Nassau County GOP leader, publicly denounced Santos and accused him of engaging in a “campaign of deceits, lies and fabrications” in order to secure the vote of New York’s Third Congressional District.

Cairo further stated that Santos had “disgraced the House of Representatives,” as reported by the New York Post.
