Santos Claws Coming to Town

George Santos, the poster child for modern politics, “has been indicted on 13 counts, including seven counts of wire fraud, three counts of money laundering, one count of theft of public funds, and two counts of making materially false statements to the House of Representatives.” When he was booked into custody, his fingerprints probably represented ten different people.

+ Surprise! Kevin McCarthy is still standing by Santos. There’s a reason for that (other than the fact that he’s long been known to laud liars). McCarthy’s majority is razor thin. How George Santos’s federal indictment could shake up Congress. (They may not be willing to raise the debt limit, but they’ve got no problem raising the indictment count.)

+ NY Mag: Here’s Every Single Lie Told by George Santos. Fake News! No one could list all of them. But they’ve definitely collected enough to keep you entertained.
