    I honestly don't know where to start with this one 😂

    For those that don't know him, he was elected as a congressman (R) for New York this year and while some politicians lie and deceive... This guy is just on another level, and he says he won't quit, and I don't see anything they can do to remove him. Which really should open a discussion about removal of elected officials caught lying.

    Some of his "highlights":

    • Using stolen checks to buy shoes in Brazil

    • Participating in the operation of a Ponzi scheme

    • Lying about having worked at Goldman Sachs

    • Lying about having worked at Citigroup

    • Lying about having Jewish grandparents who fled the Holocaust

    • Lying about having Jewish grandparents

    • Lying about being named “Anthony Zabrovsky” in order to raise money from Jewish donors

    • Lying about having employed four people who died in the 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando

    • Lying about operating a registered charity for pets

    • Lying about owning rental properties

    • Lying about his mother being the first female executive at a major financial corporation

    • Lying about his mother having been in the South Tower of the World Trade Center when it was hit by a plane on 9/11

    • Lying about having graduated from college

    • Lying about having attended college

    • Lying about having been a star volleyball player at a college he didn’t attend

    • Committing whatever kind of campaign-finance violation would require one to repeatedly claim to have eaten a meal that cost exactly $199.99, the highest expenditure that does not require the submission of a receipt to the Federal Elections Commission, at a restaurant in Queens owned by a man who also owns a property where federal agents once found cocaine and ammunition (and whose brother has been convicted of human trafficking)
