A former spokeswoman for disgraced ex-congressman George Santos gave a blunt assessment of his surprise comeback campaign in a different district.

Naysa Woomer, who served as Santos’ communications director for six months before he was expelled from Congress, said the celebrity and media attention Santos received while in office went straight to his head.

Asked if there is something wrong with Santos, Woomer told CNN’s Jake Tapper, “I want to say, yes, a little bit because it sounds like someone who just — he went from being a congressman to a celebrity. And I think just the media attention that came around him during his entire time in Congress, it just, I think it increased his ego.” 

“After listening to members such as Nick LaLota and Anthony D’Esposito, I agree with them. I mean, it’s a joke,” she continued. “And one of my biggest questions is, you know, do we need to go back?”

GEORGE SANTOS ANNOUNCES SURPRISE 2ND RUN FOR CONGRESS DURING SOTU ADDRESS

Santos turned heads Thursday night when he attended President Biden’s State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress. While the president was speaking, Santos declared his intention to challenge Rep. Nick LaLota, R-N.Y., in New York’s First Congressional District in the next election.

“New York hasn’t had a real conservative represent them since I left office arbitrarily, thanks to RINO, empty suits like Nick LaLota,” Santos wrote on X. “He is a willing to risk the future of our majority and the future of this country for his own political gain. After a lot of prayer and conversation with my friends and family, I have made a very important decision that will shake things up.”

Santos was previously elected to and expelled from New York’s 3rd Congressional District. The disgraced New York Republican was tossed out of Congress after a damning House Ethics Committee report found that he misused campaign funds on luxury items and OnlyFans, among other things.

Santos has not been convicted of a crime, but he has been indicted on multiple counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, falsification of records, credit card fraud and other charges. He has pleaded not guilty.

LaLota said he would welcome the chance to defeat Santos in a primary. 

“To raise the standard in Congress, and to hold a pathological liar who stole an election accountable, I led the charge to expel George Santos,” LaLota posted on X. “If finishing the job requires beating him in a primary, count me in.” 

EMBATTLED GOP REP GEORGE SANTOS EXPELLED FROM HOUSE

After Santos showed up at the State of the Union Address, Rep. Ritche Torres, D-N.Y., announced Friday he would introduce legislation to revoke his floor privileges.

The “Getting Expelled Officially Revokes Guaranteed Entry” rule, or GEORGE rule, would prevent former House members who have been expelled from Congress from keeping their privileges, including the right to enter the House floor when the body is in session. 

Woomer told Tapper she supported Torres’ proposal.

“I think it is a good rule,” she said. “I mean, let’s just remember too, only, I think he’s the sixth member of Congress who had been expelled.”
