Video of George Santos, who calls himself “Anthony Devolder”, has been viewed 2.8 million times

Republican Rep. George Santos is facing a fresh wave of criticism after a video surfaced on Twitter showing the embattled congressman calling himself “Anthony Devolder.”

In the clip posted by PatriotTakesan anonymous Twitter account dedicated to “exposing right-wing extremism and other threats to democracy,” Santos posed a question to a panel at a #WalkAway Foundation event in 2019.

“My name is Anthony Devolder, I live in New York City,” Santos says in the video. “I recently started a group called United for Trump. So if you guys want to follow that would be great.”

As of Friday evening, the clip had been viewed over 2.8 million times.

According to its website, the #WalkAway campaign is a grassroots movement for people who have “walked away” from the “left” and can now tell their story of how they “put identity politics behind them”. According to the video released on Friday, the event Santos attended was open specifically to the LGBTQ community.

Santos, a Republican representing New York’s 3rd congressional district, has faced multiple calls to resign from his new post after admitting to lying about himself while running for Congress that fall. Santos misled the public about his educational and professional background while falsely claiming that he was Jewish.

“Dear @SpeakerMcCarthy: GOP representative ‘George Santos’ also introduced himself as ‘George Devolder’ and ‘Anthony Devolder,'” Lieu wrote.

Meanwhile, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has defended Santos, who remains in office, saying “voters elected him to serve.”

“If there’s a concern and he has to go through ethics, let him go through that,” the Republican leader said this week, according to a report by The hill.
