Rep. George Santos (R-NY) reportedly told donors he produced a Broadway show while campaigning in 2021. The claim adds to a long list of fabrications by the freshman lawmaker.
Santos reportedly claimed he produced the show Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, but the lead producer on the show denied the congressman had any involvement, per Bloomberg.

The show, which ran from 2011 to 2014, was riddled with cast injuries from stunts and was generally poorly received. Santos is not listed as a producer on any of the show’s production listings.
The latest unearthed embellishment from Santos comes amid developments that the embattled congressman has also falsely claimed he is Jewish, that he had family members who died in the Holocaust and 9/11, and that he worked for Citigroup and Goldman Sachs.
Santos announced earlier this week that he would recuse himself from his House committee assignments, but he has refused to resign despite calls from numerous officials. He was originally slated to serve on the Small Business Committee and the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has not punished Santos for his fabrications, saying it is up to the ethics committee and his constituents to decide his political fate. McCarthy has stated that Santos will be removed if it is found he violated the law.
