He’s running folks.
The factually challenged and scandal prone congressman for Queens and Long Island announced his candidacy for re-election this past Monday. The congressman, who is under several investigations and admitted to fabricating parts of his resume, made the announcement from Washington DC.
“As a first-generation American, I am no stranger to the issues affecting my district. I grew up poor with a single mom, and thank to the American dream, a poor boy of immigrant parents in Queens can grow up to serve his community in the halls of Congress,” the congressman said in a statement.
Within his first few months in office, Santos has spurned multiple investigations into him ranging from sexual assault allegations to
Most people with a national spotlight hounding on their multitude of lies would most likely want to hide under a rock for the rest of their life. But not Santos. Here in Queens and Long Island we truly have someone special currently representing us.
Hopefully there will be a wide field of candidates both on the Democratic and Republican side who wile file against the walking headline generator, so that a new representative can focus on delivering for the district rather than inspiring Saturday Night Live skits.
Santos will most likely double down on his personal narrative, as indicated in his statement and focus on crime and other issues to win over voters. But unlike his first run for congress everything from local to midsize and national media will have eyes on him and the race.
