One of the best political acts I’ve seen over the past two years is that the N.Y. legislature gerrymandered me out of the third congressional district. The winning candidate in that district was George Santos. He has been in Congress for less than a month, and so many of his untrue statements made during the campaign have been revealed.
I have a controversial opinion about Santos’s misleading statements during the campaign. My belief is that he wasn’t purposely lying. Looking at his acts and claims, one can believe he needs mental help. Face it, the guy is crazier than a dog in a hubcap factory.
Here are some examples:
He stole $3,000 from the GoFundMe account he set up to get medical help for the sick puppy of a Navy Vet, Richard Osthoff. Thanks to Santos’ theft of the cash, Mr. Osthoff’s dog died. Anyone who steals money from a dog who needs medical help has to be crazy. When someone kicks a gentle dog, his mental ability is questioned. This is much worse than kicking a dog. No one with a normal brain would let that dog die.
If asked what’s the most horrible U.S. tragedy in their lifetime, most people old enough to understand will say the terrorist attacks on 9/11/01. The names of people who died during the attack are repeated in televised ceremonies and printed in newspapers every year since. Yet Santos claimed his mom, Fatima A.C.H. Devolder, died in the attack. However, the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services show that Santos’ mom wasn’t near the towers during the attack. In fact, she was in Brazil. One has to be nuts to say his mom was a victim when the list of victims commemorated every 9/11 anniversary, and narcissistic to use a major tragedy for political purposes.
