It appears that disgraced Long Island Congressman George Santos just can’t stay out of the news as it pertains to his bizarre and mendacious past. The New York Post reported on Sunday that Santos, 34, allegedly once told investors of his 2021 congressional campaign that he invested in the infamous Broadway production of “Spider-man: Turn off the Dark” which became one of the most expensive flops in Broadway history, as was reported by Bloomberg.

The Post reported that Santos has been caught in numerous lies over the past few weeks including ones regarding his education, work history, and the claim his mother died in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. If this claim is true it would mean that Santos would been the youngest Broadway producer in history at the age of 21 or 22, the Post reported.

Earlier in the weekend, the Post reported that short-term staffer for Santos has claimed he was sexually harassed by the disgraced representative, who allegedly touched his groin and invited him home, according to an ethics complaint the man says he filed.

The man who was allegedly harassed by Santos is Derek Myers, a former journalist. The Post reported that he tweeted that he complained about the harassment to the Office of Congressional Ethics and the United States Capitol Police. Myers also claimed that he secretly tape-recorded Santos admitting that he “lied to everyone.”

Myers, 30, contends that Santos hired him as an assistant on Jan. 23 and that two days later, they were in the rep’s Washington, DC, office going over the mail, the Post reported.

The complaint tweeted by Myers claims that Santos wanted them to sit together and put his hand on his knee and said, “Hey buddy, we’re going to karaoke tonight. Would you like to go?‘’

“I kindly declined the invitation by telling the Congressman I was not a fan of clubs and bars and that I was not a good singer. The Congressman proceeded to take his hand and move it down my leg into my inner thigh and proceeded to touch my groin,” the complaint said, according to the Post.

Santos told him, “My husband is out of town tonight if you want to come over,” according to the complaint, the Post reported. Myers also said Santos told him earlier that day that he had a profile on the Grindr dating app, which caters to gay men. Santos has claimed to be married but has not been seen with a spouse.

The Post also reported that Myers also claimed that while he was hired as a staffer, he was told his work would be voluntary until his paperwork was processed, an alleged violation of House ethics rules.

He said the job offer was rescinded Monday over concerns Santos raised that Myers, arrested in October for wiretapping, would secretly record him, the Post reported.
