George Santos Finally Admits He’s a Fraudster in Brazil

International Man of Mystery Congressman George Santos (R-NY) seems to have finally solved one of his many legal headaches.

According to a legal complaint obtained by CNNThe blatant con man has reached an agreement with prosecutors in Brazil regarding a accusation that he bought more than $1,300 worth of clothes and shoes using a stolen checkbook.

Under Brazilian law, Santos will formally confess his guilt and pay compensation to the Rio de Janeiro salesman he defrauded in 2008. Brazil allows this form of mediation without trial for non-violent crimes with a minimum sentence of less than four years.

According to case files obtained by CNN, Santos initially admitted to police in 2010 that he had stolen a checkbook from his mother’s nurse. But the case cooled down a decade after the police were no longer able to reach Santos; it was only revived this year when he emerged as a US congressman.

The confession directly contradicts statements Santos made in an interview with New York Post Office in December, he vehemently asserted his innocence of any crime in the US or Brazil.

“I am not a criminal here—not here or in Brazil or any other jurisdiction in the world. Absolutely not. That didn’t happen,” Santos said at the time.

While this was clearly a lie, that didn’t stop Santos’ attorney from justifying his request for a non-prosecution agreement by claiming that Santos had been “resocialized” and now are being recruited effectively.

In addition to his statements on the Brazilian case, Santos’ Jenga tower of lies stretched the definition of the term “resocialization” to its very limits.

At various points since the checkbook incident, Santos has been revealed to have make up almost his entire resume, false statement his mother survived 9/11 (later died on 9/11), tell sponsors he produced the infamous Broadway flop “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark,” and steal from a charity for the dying service dog of a disabled veteran—among many other scandals, scams, and fabrications.

While Santos is currently productive as an MP, he may not be in the job for long.

Lawmakers from both parties have called for him to step down, with Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) calling him a “sick puppy” at Biden’s State of the Union address. .

Santos is being investigated by the Republican-dominated House Ethics Committee for multiple campaign finance violations and an allegation of sexual misconduct involving a former employee. He is also being investigated by county, state and federal authorities over various other charges of lying.
