It is no shocker that politicians try to lie to their voters for power but the latest case of this instance has brought a full on investigation into a politician who deceived his voters into voting for him…
Representative-Elect George Santos (not to be confused with Soros) has been tied up in his a barrage of attacks from both sides of the aisle for some pretty outlandish claims that he made on the campaign trail. It appears that his lies have caught up with him, not just in public perception but potentially legally.
The latest update in Santos’ debacle is that an official investigation has been opened to him via a New York Federal prosecution team.
This announcement comes as a second official investigation of George Santos whose claims about his mother’s life, his ethnicity and career have all been catching a lot of steam.
Santos’s career claims were the first that raised eyebrows after he claimed to work for Goldman Sachs and Citigroup despite being distantly affiliated with them via a business deal. Another claim that was disputed was Santos’ “Jewish heritage” which later came out to being much less than he had portrayed on the campaign trail.
Santos also claimed that he graduated from Baruch College in New York despite not even receiving a degree from that educational entity. Last but certainly not least, Santos also tweeted claims about his parents and 9/11 that infuriated a lot of people.
Check out an example of the claims made below:

Santos now acknowledges that he didn’t graduate from Baruch College or anywhere else. https://t.co/z5Fq5CUM0h

“I never claimed to be Jewish,” Santos said. “I said I was `Jew-ish.'”

With the firestorm of Santos’ lies covering the media throughout the week, many people are bring to light the fact that the investigation of Santos could be just a form of political warfare considering that the “embellishments” Joe Biden has made on the campaign trail have never been investigated.
While lying to voters is something that most constituents see through, Biden’s claims have been so outlandish many are demanding more light be shown on to them.
One of the notable lies that Biden has spewed and been called out for is his claim that he was arrested in South Africa during the age of Apartheid. After that claim was made Biden was forced to walk it back with Fox News reporting that he said, “So I guess I should have said I was detained, that I was not able to move forward.”
Fox News also reports that Biden has claimed to be “forced down” in a helicopter by Al Qaeda in Afghanistan, exaggerated about a house fire, fabricated war stories of a Naval Captain, claims of being shot at in Iraq and even a claim that he was “raised in the Puerto Rican community at home, politically,” which turned out to be a major embellishment.
This is not the first instance of ‘Lyin Biden,’ in fact claims that he made about his academic status and instances of plagiarism in 1988 led to the demise of his then-Presidential run.
Although more and more instances of Biden’s embellishments may surface, many are asking when it will be enough to justify an investigation like Santos.
Check out what some people are saying on Twitter about the issue below:
Democrats are on the warpath, demanding George Santos resign for inflating his past accomplishments and backstory.
Oddly enough, they have no desire to apply that standard to their own standard-bearer: Joe Biden.
Walk with me because things get crazy…🧵

Senator Richard Blumenthal lies about serving in Vietnam, Senator Elizabeth. Warren lies about being a Native American, Joe Biden lies about everything, but George Santos is crucified.

Joe Biden has lied more about his past than George Santos.

Hear about Rep. Santos who lied about his law school, the death of his wife, his uncle, getting arrested, his ethnicity, and opposing the Iraq War?
Oh wait, that wasn't Santos. That's Biden.
By the D's standard, he must resign! pic.twitter.com/y012L1awv2
