Violets are blueish,
It it weren’t for Christmas,
We’d all be Jew………ish.
Some GOP leaders say Republican Santos ‘lied’ about career and Jewish heritage

Congressman-elect George Santos from New York now acknowledges he misled voters about big parts of his life story before winning a seat on Long Island last month.
During the campaign, Santos described graduating from Baruch College, said he worked for Goldman Sachs and claimed to own valuable real estate properties.
He now acknowledges none of that is true. He also admits his claim that four of his employees died in the 2016 Pulse night club shooting in Orlando, Fla., was false.
A growing number of critics, including some in the Republican Party, say Santos’ outright lied when he claimed to be “a proud Jewish American” and said members of his family escaped the Holocaust.
“His story about having Holocaust heritage and Ukrainian heritage, I just don’t see any evidence to support it in his family tree,” Megan Smolenyak, a forensic genealogist who examined Santos’ family records, said in an interview with NPR.
In a statement Monday, the Republican Jewish Coalition said Santos “deceived us and misrepresented his heritage.”
What a schmuck.
George Santos (r) should feel at home in the new republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.
