epresentative George Santos of New York is facing a new controversy following a report saying the embattled congressman used to perform in drag, with some of his staunchest GOP supporters remaining silent about the claim.
Journalist Marisa Kabas on Wednesday reported that Santos had performed as an amateur drag queen named “Kitara Revache” while living in Brazil roughly 15 years ago. Kabas also shared a photo that purportedly shows Santos dressed in drag alongside fellow drag queen Eula Rochard, who spoke to the journalist after recently spotting the congressman on Brazilian TV.
Santos continues to face backlash for extensively lying about his background before being elected in November. Uncertainties surrounding the Republican include even his name. He was reportedly known as Anthony Devolder at the time Kabas claimed he performed in drag.newsweek George Santos Drag Report Puts His Biggest GOP Defenders in a Tough Spot
