Long Island Editor Recounts Disturbing First Encounter With ‘Pure Evil’ George Santos


A Long Island newspaper editor on Saturday recalled an alarming early encounter with then-Republican House candidate George Santos, whose behavior he called “pure evil.”

The North Shore Leader newspaper is currently calling on Santos to resign — or be kicked out of the House.

Something was wrong with him “from the start,” editor Grant Lally told MSNBC of his meeting with Santos, which he described as a “preposterous fraud.”

The then-candidate was seeking the newspaper’s support during the 2020 meeting with Lally. But the leader blasted him last year as a “fake” and a “fabulist” – and “weird, unprincipled and sketchy” – and endorsed his Democratic rival for the House seat.

A recent editorial in what Lally describes as the “mostly Republican” newspaper sang: “I told you so.”

“I asked him a lot of questions, a lot of pointed questions, a lot of personal questions – not a hostile meeting at all. But he really was a weirdo from the start. Lally told MSNBC host Cori Coffin about meeting Santos.

“He was evasive. He was also enjoying the attention he was getting, which I thought was very odd for a guy who was only 31 then but claimed to be a multi-millionaire financier,” Lally said.

The leader’s view of Santos three years ago has since been bolstered by news reports about Santos’ string of lies about graduating from college, graduating summa cum laude ( with a weighted grade point average) and work for Citigroup and Goldman Sachs, to name just a fraction of his canards.

Santos also claimed that the mysterious company he started in 2021, the Devolder Organization, had somehow amassed millions of dollars in less than two years.

“We felt very justified [by other media] because we called it fake,” Lally said. Santos’ lie was “beyond our wildest expectations”, he added. “We didn’t think anyone would lie about attending Baruch College. We didn’t think anyone would lie about working at Goldman Sachs.

Lally regretted that the story was not picked up by other media at the time. If that had been the case, “we wouldn’t have to deal with this sociopath in the US Congress right now,” he added.

Lally referenced a recent story that Santos stole $3,000 from a disabled American veteran who needed the money to operate on his service dog. Santos made a GoFundMe appeal, raised $3,000, then allegedly took the funds and disappeared.

The “dog was not operated on and the dog died. It’s pure evil,” added Lally, who is confident there will be a vote “close enough to a unanimous vote” to kick Santos out of the House.

“No one can support him at this point. You cannot stand this level of harm from anyone,” he said.
