George Santos seems to confirm Drag Photo: ‘Sue me for having a life’


Rep. George Santos (RN.Y.) appeared to tell reporters on Saturday that he was dressed in cross-dressing, but insisted he was never a cross-dresser.

“No, I wasn’t a drag queen in Brazil, guys. I was young and I was having fun at a festival. Sue me for having a life,” Santos told reporters at New York’s LaGuardia Airport, according to CNN.

In a tweet last weekSantos said the suggestion that he was a drag performer was “categorically false”.

The embattled legislator is subject to multiple investigations at the federal and local levels as the number of background falsehoods he sold to voters continues to grow. He has admitted to lying about his work experience, heritage and education and is also under investigation for alleged campaign finance violations.

Reporters on Saturday also questioned Santos about his claim that his mother was in the South Tower of the World Trade Center during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Records show that she was in Brazil at the time and died in 2016.

According to CNN, Santos ignored the questions and lashed out at reporters for asking them.
