Incoming Republican Representative George Santos is being criticized for allegedly lying on his resume and fabricating parts of his life story.
During his campaign, Santos portrayed himself as growing up in a working-class, immigrant family in Queens and getting a high school equivalency diploma. From there he rose in the world of finance, ending with his participation in “landmark deals on Wall Street.
However, the colleges where he allegedly obtained his degrees did not have any records that he had attended, including Baruch College and New York University. Similarly, several companies where he allegedly worked have no record of him as an employee, including Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, Metglobal, and LinkBridge Investors.
