(Back in December, 2022, I wrote about the blizzard of Trump-like lies swirling around newly-elected Republican Congressman George Santos, who fraudulently stole the New York Congressional seat in the district where I lived for 20 years. Santos was the poster-boy for the “Next Generation of Republican Leadership,” and campaigned with House Republican Conference Chair, Rep. Elise Stefanik, from upstate New York. Stefanik even helped raise money for Santos, and used some of those funds to support other GOP Congressional candidates, giving the GOP control of the House of Representatives.
This morning those lies, fraud and alleged crimes caught up with George Santos when he was arrested by the FBI, and indicted on 13-federal charges including money laundering, fraud, and theft of public money—COVID money.
Like many law abiding Americans, I love the sound of GOP frauds, liars and cheats being handcuffed in the morning…
Here’s my original piece, entitled “Georgy Santos Has No Pantos.”
He never went to Horace Mann,
He lies and lies as fast as he can.
Baruch, a goof; Citibank, a prank.
Georgy Santos has no pantos.
Deaths in the Holocaust? 9/11? Or Pulse?
Surely such horror was meant to repulse.
No one will fact check; no one will question.
To grift on such grief,
Is to cause indigestion.
Georgy Santos, has no pantos.
Ukrainian-ISH, Jew-ISH, or just a tad gay;
The lying was pure TrumpISH,
Even Elise would say.
To them, one big con game, so ripe to play.
An overnight wonder, like Elizabeth Holmes or Crypto;
Santos source of $$$, didn’t come from calypso.
From Brazilian fascists? Putin? Stefanik, perhaps?
Just cook up a fake resume, and goddamn the facts.
A dash of Latino, a gay man, a Jew—
A rich man, a poor man, anything for you.
A Grand Ole’ Prevaricator (that’s the G.O.P),
Santos is whatever you can imagine him to be.
If you can believe him,
Santos crashed the Insurrection,
So maybe Steve Bannon (friend of Lee Zeldin’s)
Funded his political resurrection.
Now, he’s exposed,
Like Mar-A-Lago’s Emperor, with no clothes.
Georgy Porgy with no pantos?
The only thing more cringy,
Is a Naked Ron DeSantos…
