George Santos Accused of Sexually Harassing Prospective Staffer

HeadlineFeb 07, 2023

Embattled New York Republican Congressmember George Santos is facing fresh scrutiny after a prospective staffer in his Capitol Hill office accused Santos of sexual harassment. Derek Myers made the allegation on Twitter, publishing a complaint filed with the Office of Congressional Ethics. Meanwhile, Bloomberg reports Santos told potential donors in 2021 that he had been a producer for the Broadway flop, “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.” A spokesperson for the short-lived musical responded, “Of all the tribulations the producers … had to endure, we are very pleased, proud and relieved to report working with George Santos was not one of them.” This comes after reports emerged that the Brazilian lawyer that Santos hired to defend him against fraud charges in Brazil was convicted and incarcerated for his involvement in a gang execution in 2007.
