George Anthony Devolder Santos is an American politician affiliated with the Republican Party, currently holding the position of U.S. representative for New York’s 3rd congressional district since 2023. His journey to Congress began with an unsuccessful 2020 campaign against Democratic incumbent Thomas Suozzi. However, Santos secured victory in the 2022 election, marking his entrance into the United States House of Representatives.
Santos had never publicly acknowledged having a husband, and the name Matt had never been associated with him before. However, he recently issued a statement expressing profound grief alongside his husband Matt regarding Senator Feinstein’s passing. This article will provide further details regarding Santos’s husband and the recent revelation.
Did George Santos Just Announce His Husband?
George Santos made a surprising revelation when he mentioned having a husband while expressing condolences for the late Senator Diane Feinstein, leaving the internet in a state of confusion. The Republican representative, in a message, conveyed his sorrow alongside his husband Matt over Senator Feinstein’s passing and praised her 30 years of service to the country.
This disclosure caught many off guard, as Santos had never publicly mentioned having a husband before, let alone one named Matt. The unexpected revelation led to a flurry of online discussions and humor, with some questioning if he had just “hard-launched” his husband following Senator Feinstein’s death. While there were previous mentions of Santos being married, no prior reference to a husband named Matt could be found.
Some online reactions pointed out Santos’s history of stretching the truth and making false claims about his life, including discrepancies on his resume. Despite previous scrutiny, his penchant for misinformation has made him a target for satire on late-night shows and “Saturday Night Live.”
