Republican Congressman George Santos was sworn in to represent New York’s 3rd congressional district, despite being exposed for a series of mistruths. Santos, who made history for being the first openly gay Latin Republican elected to congress, has claimed to be Ukrainian, Jewish, and now a tweet surfaced where he said he was Black.
In a July 2020 tweet, Santos appears to be complaining about “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” which has been the Black National Anthem since 1919. In the tweet, he said he was biracial. A user questioned “how” he was biracial, and in a tweet that is not deleted, he wrote, “Caucasian and black.” Very few House Republicans have addressed the George Santos scandal.
