George Santos - drag queen Kitara Ravache - Busted

Santos has been charged with seven counts of wire fraud, three counts of money laundering, one count of theft of public funds, and two counts of making materially false statements to the House of Representatives.

After denying all, George Santos did, in fact, dress in women's clothing. A user with the name Anthony Devolder wrote in 2011 that they won several drag pageants. Anthony Devolder is Santos' alias. George Santos says he rejects the term drag queen now. “No, I was not a drag queen in Brazil, guys. I was young and I had fun at a festival. Sue me for having a life,” Reporter Marisa Kabas posted a photo of Santos in drag in 2008. Kabas spoke with Eula Rochard, a Brazilian drag queen who was friends with Santos near Rio de Janeiro. His drag name was Kitara Ravache.
The most recent obsession from the media claiming that I am a drag Queen or “performed” as a drag Queen is categorically false.”  George Santos, 34, is a Republican from New York. He says he’s the “embodiment of the American dream.” That seems off as attempts to verify claims that Santos made on the campaign trail say he is a prolific liar. Citigroup and Goldman Sachs, the marquee Wall Street firms on Mr. Santos’s campaign biography, said they had no record of his ever working there. Santos said it was 'bad word choice'. Officials at Baruch College, which Mr. Santos said he graduated from in 2010, could find no record of him. Santos has described a family fortune in real estate, he has not disclosed, nor could The Times find, a single record of any properties.

Santos had a great reversal of personal financial fortune after supporting Trump's election steal fraud.
In November 2015, a landlord in Queens filed an eviction suit in housing court accusing Santos of owing $2,250 in unpaid rent. In May 2017, Santos faced another eviction, Santos’s landlord accused him of owing more than $10k in rent. Santos said that he was the Devolder Organization’s sole owner and managing member. He reported that the company paid him a $750k salary from undisclosed sources. He earned dividends from Devolder between $1m and $5m.

In an interview with the New York Post, Santos admitted his lies and brushed them off saying; "My sins here are embellishing my resume. I'm sorry."
