    This dude is a legitimate pathological liar sociopath and it's incredible that he found his way into the house of fucking U.S. representatives.

    It's scary to think that there isn't really a solid vetting process for our law makers. It appears that we are more scrutinized in our jobs and we don't set policy and law.

    Pretty damning indictment of the current state of political media coverage/voter information.

    He’s also the perfect candidate of the modern “fake it til you make it” timbre of social media.

    Depressing to think how many scandals and lies we could have chronicled real-time if this thread began earlier.

    Exciting to think how many scandals and lies are still to come.

    Agreed. Who the fuck was responsible for opposition research? The NY Democratic Party, which already cost Dems the house, should be dismantled and replaced. What a disgrace.

    Also, fuck this piece of shit.

    I don't want to give them too much credit but could the NY Dem Party allowing him to pass vetting be on purpose if they felt that district was a lost cause no matter who the candidate with the R next to their name and it would be better politically to make a fool of this guy after he was elected?

    This. It was a very safe D seat until the court invalidated the map. By that time, Dems had done absolutely nothing because they thought it would be an easy win. To be fair, Rs didn’t do much of anything in the district either because they thought it was a guaranteed L. Meanwhile, this fraud was the only one doing any real campaigning.

    Awful example of right place at the right time.

    Not sure what’s more alarming- the extent of his lies or the awful spelling.

    Fun fact- Brazil has up to 12 different racial categories based on skin color and a person can change categories based on socioeconomic status, i.e. “money whitens”

    It's funny till you remember that the GOP is putting him on committees and will demand he be given access to the same classified information as the rest. And he will inevitably share/sell that information.

    It’ll be interesting to see if he learned anything from Madison Cawthorn. Santos seemingly hasn’t told a single truth to date but until his hijinks directly impact another Republican directly, he can probably coast along through at least this term.
