New York Rep. George Santos ‘honored’ by lying Pinocchio figurine

Now, if Rep. George Santos tells you he was immortalized with a bobblehead, that won’t be a lie.

The notoriously fib-prone Long Island congressman is getting the kind of attention most politicians die for — albeit for all the wrong reasons — his own bobblehead dolls courtesy of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame.

That puts the Santos fabulist in the same company as Anthony Fauci, the longtime former head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who was ubiquitous during the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

“We’ve had an increasing number of requests for a George Santos bobblehead,” said Phil Sklar, co-founder and CEO of the Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum.

“Some people even said he was a top contender for ‘Bobblehead of the Year,’ so we decided to give people the chance to get their own George Santos Bobbleheads. Nobody knows how and when the drama surrounding George Santos ends, but we know the bobblehead will be the perfect collectible to commemorate this incredible story for years to come.

There are two versions: a standard version and another with an elongated Pinocchio nose given the “seemingly endless series of lies and fabrications,” Sklar said.

The museum says it will donate $5 from every George Santos Bobblehead sold to GoFundMe dog-related campaigns.

Rich Osthoff, a Navy veteran from New Jersey, recently claimed that Santos, then billed as Anthony Devolder, started a GoFundMe campaign in 2016 to raise $3,000 for life-saving surgery for the dog. Osthoff’s beloved assist – but kept the money. Santos denied the charge and said he did not know the Navy vet.

Santos, who beat Democrat Robert Zimmerman last fall to succeed former Rep. Tom Suozzo in the 3rd congressional district, has been in hot water for fabricating virtually his entire biography — including lying about his life. college graduation and labor history.

He faces numerous criminal and ethical investigations, some of which relate to questionable finances related to his campaign finance, including sources of loans.
