NO DECENCY: “Weaker Speaker” will seat Santos on committees after saying he wouldn’t
Who paid to send Rep. George “Anthony Devolder Jingleheimer Schmidt” Santos (R-NY via Brazilian back alleys & the tunnels under Mar-a-Lago) to Congress — and who’s paying to keep him there?
I’m going to go out on a limb and say whoever it is, they also have Rep. Kevin “Weaker Speaker” McCarthy (R-CA when not nestled in Trump’s colon) on their payroll, because KKKevin and Anthony sure have a fundamentally strange thing going on.
McCarthy has been protecting the Uncredible Mr. Ripoff for over eighteen months, as it was recently revealed he became aware of a Santos campaign aide posing as McCarthy’s Chief of Staff in emails and on phone calls to solicit donations.
And he became aware of this fact in August 2021, which is a very long time before November 2022. Are you telling me there wasn’t an actual real candidate in that district to replace Santos, who had “delusions of grandeur” according to the roommates he stole from?
Aside from the ethics complaint that the now GOP-controlled House Oversight Committee will be investigating, Santos is the subject of several real federal and state investigations.
Last week, McCarthy said Santos wouldn’t be seated on any “key” committees while he’s being investigated, giving reporters a hard “No” when asked about it on January 11th.
But on Tuesday he told The Hill that Santos would get assigned to committees. I wonder what changed in those six days?
And late-breaking news now tells us that Santos has been offered seats on the House Science and Small Business Committees, perhaps because his fraud was not on quite a grand enough scale to graduate to the big leagues.

While the opportunistic rat bastard McCarthy allowed on Monday that he “always had a few questions” about Santos’s résumé, he’ll still be seated.
“I try to stick by the Constitution,” KKKevin parried. “The voters elected him to serve. If there is a concern, and he has to go through the Ethics [Committee], let him move through that,” McCarthy said, adding “he will continue to serve.”
I can’t stand snide smarmy sycophants. There will be an investigation, and the people who voted for Santos now want him to resign. STFU, Kevin.
As for that Santos aide who impersonated McCarthy’s Chief of Staff?
“My staff raised concerns when he had a staff member who impersonated my chief of staff, and that individual was let go when Mr. Santos found out about it,” McCarthy said Tuesday.
I call BULLLLLSHIT and so does Twitter.

Kevin McCarthy names George Santos Chairman of the House Lost & Found. If you lost it, he probably swiped it.
