Santos Moves to Cameo and Targets Menendez After Congress Exit

( – Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) poked fun at his colleague Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) using a $200 Cameo video starring the infamous former Rep. George Santos (R-NY) who was recently ousted from his seat in the House.

Cameo is a website that allows celebrities to make some side money charging users for custom videos. Santos links to his Cameo page on his X (Twitter) profile making it easy for anyone to access the service.

The video from December 4th was addressed to Sen. Bob Menendez who is facing numerous charges after a 2022 raid discovered hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash stuffed into sports jackets and gold bars at his private residence.

Many commentators considered Santos’ expulsion from the House a double standard when compared with Menendez being able to remain in the Senate. However, some conservatives argued both men remain innocent until proven guilty in a court of law and shouldn’t be punished until those processes are complete.

In a post on X, Fetterman took credit for the video. He called Menendez “ethically-challenged” and sarcastically offered “some encouragement” citing the criminal allegations against him along with the video from Santos. Santos tells Menendez to stand his ground and “stay strong” before wishing him a Merry Christmas.

The replies featured shock that Fetterman was capable of advanced trolling like this, as well as surprise that a Democrat would poke fun at another Democrat.

Santos is likely scrambling for cash to fund his legal bills. He’ll face a 23-count indictment for stealing from donors, fraudulent paperwork, and perjury before Congress. The House voted on December 1st to kick him out of Congress after an ethics report delivered primarily evidence of his guilt. Over a hundred GOP Representatives voted to kick him out along with all the Democrats giving them the required votes.

Santos was quickly a controversial figure after his election in the 2022 midterms, as he was found early to have lied about his Jewish ancestry (he’s not Jewish), former employers, and education. That led to more scrutiny and several investigations found enough evidence to charge him with crimes.
