George Santos laments his ‘year from hell’ after ethics report release

George Santos has complained that he has suffered a “year from hell” following the release of a scathing House Ethics Committee report which found that he spent campaign donations on OnlyFans and Botox.

The embattled congressman and serial liar took to X late on Thursday evening to color himself as a sufferer of “dirty” politics and “poison” from the ethics committee.

Lamenting that he was simply attempting to “serve my country” by working for Congress, the person who has been uncovered for mendacity about every little thing from 9/11 to being Jewish claimed that his “rights” had been taken from him.

“My year from Hell,” he started.

“Running for office was never a dream or goal, but when the opportunity to do so came I felt the time to serve my country was now.

“Looking back today I know one thing, politics is indeed dirty, dirty from the very bottom up. Consultants, operatives, the opposition, the party and more… the one thing I never knew was that the process in Congress was dirty. I will continue to fight for what I believe in and I will never back down.

“What the “ethics committee” did at present was not a part of due course of, what they did was poison a the jury pool on my on going investigation with the DOJ. This was a grimy biased act and one which tramples throughout my rights.”

The New York lawmaker concluded by saying that he’ll maintain a press convention on the steps of the US Capitol in two weeks’ time.

“Press conference November 30th at 8am on The Capitol steps, I encourage ALL members of the press to attend. Happy Thanksgiving,” he added.

On Thursday, the House Ethics Committee released its damning report into the freshman congressman following a months-long investigation.

In it, the committee stated it had uncovered “substantial evidence” that the GOP lawmaker broke federal legal guidelines.

Following its release, Mr Santos introduced that he will not seek reelection – however continues to refuse to face down from his position in Congress.
