Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.) is the poster child for this epidemic in the Republican party. Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-Fla.), Rep. Andrew Ogles (R-Tenn.) are the newest members to be outed for their misrepresentation to voters.
Republicans are no longer just lying about the world around them — about climate change or vaccines or voter fraud — they’re increasingly lying about themselves.
When a party decides to peddle in lies and propaganda, they can expect liars and propagandists to fill their ranks. When the incentive to mislead voters is greater than any incentive to tell the truth, you wind up with a party of charlatans. In other word’s, today’s GOP.
