Everyone's Favorite Half-Black, Jew-ish Tubby Lying Queen: Part 5 of the George Santos Thread

Continuation of the fat liar draq queen Congressman.

Related thread below.

People keep saying it was a traditional Democratic district to begin with are ignoring that the lines were redrawn before this election and it became more Republican. And it was not Republican gerrymandering. The Democrats in Albany gerrymandered all the districts so badly that a court stepped and redrew the lines. But even in the old district prior to the Democratic congressman before Santos it had been long represented by a very popular Republican Peter King who retired. But I don’t know what King’s district lines looked like. My guess is that it is. “Purple” district. If the GOP can induce King to return they might hold it.

by Anonymousreply 1February 24, 2023 11:31 PM

No, King was on the south shore. This district was represented by Steve Israel (D) and Tom Suozzi (D) since 2000 prior to being redrawn.

by Anonymousreply 2February 25, 2023 1:24 AM

Pete King was the rep for NY-03 until 2013, not 2000. It’s a swing district that has mostly voted Democratic in the past decade.

King was a decent old fashioned Republican and a union supporter.

by Anonymousreply 5February 25, 2023 1:53 AM

King was anti-gay and voted against us whenever he could. I called his office and wrote letters in the 90s when Long Beach was still part of -03. He wrote back a very cordial letter hoping I might overlook those issues and find areas where we agreed. But I still voted against him.

On non-gay issues he was a voice of reason in the Republican Party. He voted against the Clinton impeachment and for 9-11 survivors.

[quote]Sitting beside Santos, smirking, is his bald and bearded 31-year-old “director of operations.” His name is Vish Burra. He’s a former drug dealer from Staten Island who, while he worked for Steve Bannon, was the guy you went through if you wanted to check out the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop. He also did crisis comms for Matt Gaetz, and, along with Santos, was part of a mini-MAGA cabal that took over the New York Young Republican Club. The club is run by Burra and Santos’s buddy, Gavin Wax.

This is good...

How so, Google tells me 222 Republican, 213 Democrats in the House. The Republicans can afford to lose one. Are you claiming there will then be a Speaker challenge from within the Republican caucus, R127? ,

Yes R128 McCarthy only had a one vote margin when he was finally elected on the 15th ballot and the revised house rules allow for any single member to call for a new vote.

It would be an interesting development if the speakership of the house goes into disarray during the debt limit negotiation. It would certainly increase the grounds for Biden to invoke the 14th amendment.

I guess Kitara MUST be an American citizen to have been elected in the first place. Is he also a citizen of Brazil? Can't he just roll on out to the airport and leave all this trouble behind? He's obviously in bed with some bigtime Latino criminals, won't they payroll his escape? Wouldn't everyone be better off if he did? If he gets indicted does he HAVE to resign? So the Gov. there gets to appoint a Democratic successor to serve out the rest of his term? Sorry to be asking so many questions...

You have to a citizen but not born in the US to serve in Congress. Surprisingly (to no one) his birthplace (Queens or Brazil) is not clear and whether he has dual citizenship is also unclear. I am guessing if he is a US citizen his birthplace is the county and borough of Queens in the City of New York.

R132, he’s always been free to run away, but he loves the spotlight. He’s living his dream. The criminals he may be involved with are likely Russian. He does not have to resign if indicted; he has to be removed by the House. I think there would be a special election if that happened, but am too lazy to confirm that.

He raised TOO MUCH money, IMHO...

George Santos’ campaign paid him $85,000 this quarter

The payments were designed to pay the congress member back for loans he previously made to his campaign.

The campaign of embattled Rep. George Santos, who is facing federal indictment on fraud and money laundering charges, paid the congressmember $85,000 in the second quarter of this year.

Though the New York representative says he is running for reelection, he spent virtually nothing on campaigning.

The payments the campaign made to Santos stemmed from hundreds of thousands of dollars that the congressmember previously loaned to his campaign. Those loans had sparked questions about how Santos had so much money to lend his political efforts. Previous reports with the Federal Election Commission indicated Santos had loaned the campaign $715,000, although his latest report indicated he was now owed only $530,000.

The loan repayments accounted for more than 60 percent of the $133,000 that Santos reported raising in the second quarter. The first-term congressmember, who lied about much of his biography prior to his election last year, reported having $55,000 cash on hand in his principal campaign committee.

His fundraising was driven primarily by donors who gave the maximum $3,300, his filing shows. Among those who maxed out to the congressmember included individuals who listed their professions as “student” and “housewife” and “parttime job/casher (sic).”

The latest filing with the federal commission also included an unusual note stating that the campaign intended to report accurate totals based on “incomplete” historical data.

Santos’ campaign previously lost money during the first quarter, as refunds issued exceeded new contributions received. Nonetheless, the beleaguered New York congressmember announced in April that he planned to seek reelection.

He was indicted in May on charges including wire fraud and theft of public funds. Prosecutors allege he asked a New York political consultant to solicit donations ostensibly in support of his congressional campaign that were actually transferred to his personal bank accounts.

Santos also allegedly received unemployment benefits in 2020 despite holding a job, and is accused of making false statements on mandatory personal financial disclosures filed during his first congressional campaign.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has not called on Santos to resign in light of the charges but said he should not run for reelection.

Filings earlier this week indicated Santos was in the process of terminating at least two joint fundraising committees that brought in money for his campaign last cycle.

His fundraising this quarter foretells a difficult path to reelection — particularly as he faces challengers from both parties. Kellen Curry, who has filed to run in the Long Island district as a Republican, said earlier in the week that he had raised more than $200,000 across his campaign and a leadership PAC from April through June.

Half a dozen Democrats have also filed to run against Santos, with the party seeing a possible pickup opportunity in a district Biden won in 2020.

I don't know, R210. I agree with the decision. While I want Santos out, he is innocent until proven guilty. The best way (IMHO) to get rid of him on his own is to put pressure on anyone that donates to his campaign. If there is no money, there isn't much that he can do to get re-elected and hopefully he will be voted out. However, once there is a guilty conviction, and if he is still in office, then it's time to revisit expulsion.
