George Santos Paid Noem Campaign $1,000 for Two (Two!) Cozy Photos

Chris Walsh, manager of New York Congressman Pat Ryan’s successful 2022 campaigns, notes that lying Congressman-Elect George Santos argues that Santos wasted campaign money on out-of-state candidates like failed Trumpist candidate for Arizona Senate Blake Masters and more successful Trumpist South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem:

Santos wouldn’t say the $1,000 he gave to Kristi Noem’s gubernatorial campaign made literally zero cents. He told the Federal Election Commission that he made that contribution on March 5, 2021. On that same day, Santos posted to Instagram this really great photo of himself with Governor Noem and pro-wrestler turned carpetbagger Dan Rodimer at Mar-a-Lago, where Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle charged Santos and others $1,000 just to get in the door:

A couple days earlier, Santos posted another tremendous photo, this one a one-on-one with Noem at a lunch hosted by Noem’s jetsetting compatriotess and rich hurricane victim Jacqueline Siegel:

Two photos shoulder-to-crossfit-shoulder with Celebrity Kristi for a measly $1,000?! That’s a steal!

Strangely, Noem’s campaign team appears to have lost track of Santos’s check. The 2021 year-end campaign finance report filed by Kristi for Governor on January 28, 2022, does not show any contribution from the Santos campaign. Nor do either of the amendments to that report that Noem filed to correct errors on February 9 and March 30. That’s funny—Santos scandalous lies didn’t become public knowledge until this month; why would Noem have hidden Santos’s support last winter?

    Follow the money. Mrs. Noem is governor because the Governor’s Club bought her the seat.

    Goodness!!! As we all know the Governor was serving as a goodwill Ambassador for the State of South Dakota while at this event in Mar-a-Lago. It was her job to be warm and wonderful to all in attendance. She picked up some pocket change but her mind was always on the welfare of the citizens of her state.

    Lar, you know as well as ol’ grudznick; the Governor’s Club only meets sporadically and over breakfast. And you haven’t paid your dues in 2 years now, so are on double secret probation.

    Will campaign finance reports be amended so that this discrepancy can be addressed?

    What a photo, one a pro wrassler, fake sport. Two, a self defined rancher, really a barrel racing farmer. Three, an absolutely total fraud, the new, the perfect Republican. It’s hard to even type from the laughter. Even when they win they are hilarious. I’m grateful, this will be a great, or rather a grating new year. No cheese allowed.

    All is fair in lust and hoes.

    It’s obvious Santos is spending someone else’s money, not his own. I think the really big lies he’s told haven’t been uncovered yet.

    Interesting that NOem is now caught in his web of deception.
