Il repubblicano George Santos ammette di aver mentito sul suo CV

Il neoeletto deputato repubblicano George Santos si è scusato dopo aver ammesso di aver mentito sulla sua formazione e sulla sua esperienza lavorativa.

Santos, eletto a New York, ha dichiarato al New York Post: “Il mio peccato è stato quello di abbellire il mio curriculum. Mi dispiace”.

He insisted he was “not a criminal” and said that the controversy would not deter him from serving his two-year term in Congress.

The allegation was first made in a New York Times report last week.

At the time, a lawyer for Mr Santos hit back at the claims that he misrepresented where he went to college and his alleged employment history, describing them as “defamatory” and a “shotgun blast of attacks”.
