New York Daily News hits Rep. George Santos with scathing cover
The home paper of serial liar Rep. George Santos (RN.Y.) slammed the controversial congressional freshman with a sharp front page Thursday.
After Santos was indicted on 13 federal counts of fraud and money laundering, the New York Daily News responded with the following cover:
The tabloid published a photo of Santos exiting a Long Island courthouse next to someone carrying a sign that read only “LIES.”
“Liars under Fed fire,” read the headline.
Santos pleaded not guilty to the allegations on Wednesday, which included allegations that he pocketed $25,000 in campaign donations for himself and received pandemic-related unemployment benefits while also earning a $120,000 salary.
The congressman, who was found to have made multiple allegations about his background after winning the 2022 election, dismissed the allegations as a “witch hunt” and vowed to pursue his bid for re-election next year.
