A new CBS News documentary unpacks George Santos’ journey from a basement in Queens to the loftiest halls of power in Washington by unwinding a campaign of deceit that delivered him.
Via The Wrap:
“Campaign of Deceit: The Election of George Santos,” which premieres Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET, unpacks the New York Republican’s trail of lies by following his humble roots from a basement in Queens to one of Long Island’s wealthiest suburbs.
CBS News correspondent Caitlin Huey-Burns unraveled his lies by interviewing sources who were burned by him, including a middle school classmate. It became apparent that Santos’ made up stories hinged on a desire to relate to those in his district.
It goes without saying that, despite multiple requests, Santos declined to participate in the CBS Reports documentary.
