Truth-challenged out Rep. George Santos (R-NY), who has been exposed for padding his professional resume with dozens of outright lies, has his first primary challenger for the 2024 election cycle.
And while Santos lied about working on Wall Street, his challenger actually did.
From Bloomberg News:
Kellen Curry, a major in the Air Force Reserves, said he quit his job as a vice president in JPMorgan’s corporate and investment banking business to file campaign paperwork with the Federal Election Commission on Monday.
A JPMorgan spokeswoman confirmed that Curry worked at the bank and had recently resigned. Curry, 37, who was a US equities research analyst, said he had worked full-time at the bank since 2019.
“The general thrust of our message is simple and straightforward: It’s about restoring honesty and integrity back to congressional representation,” Curry said in an interview with Bloomberg News on Monday. “The people deserve better.”
Santos filed paperwork with the FEC last month declaring his intention to seek reelection in 2024.
Joe Cairo, the chairman of the Nassau County Republican party located in Santos’ congressional district, has said the organization would not support Santos in 2024.
