- Two roommates of congressman George Santos suspect the congressman of stealing a Burberry scarf in 2020.
- The roommates also believe that Santos stole other valuable clothes from them.
- One of the roommates was convinced after seeing Santos wear a Burberry scarf a year later.
Two former roommates of Representative George Santos say the congressman took a Burberry scarf from one of them and wore it in public a year later at a 2021 “Stop the Steal” rally, at which he claimed his own election of 2020 was stolen from him.
The new revelation adds to a long and growing list of accusations leveled against the new member of Congress.
Gregory Morey-Parker and Yasser Rabello, who lived with Santos and accused him of stealing other expensive items, told Patch that they believe Santos stole a $520 Burberry scarf that was presented to Morey-Parker by a friend during the time he they lived together in an apartment in Queens.
In messages sent in 2020 between Morey-Parker and Rabello obtained by Patch, the two roommates vented about items they suspected Santos had stolen, including an Armani shirt worth $500. as Anthony in messages, matching reports that Santos previously used the name Anthony Devolder.
Morey-Parker told Patch when he watched Santos speak at the January 5, 2021 rally while wearing the designer camel plaid scarf, he was sure it was his due to its “lighter” color compared to similar scarves.
During his speech at the rally, Santos protested his own defeat in New York’s 3rd congressional district to Democrat Thomas Suozzi in 2020, falsely claiming that, like former President Donald Trump, his own election was “stolen” from him.

Calls for Santos’ resignation – including from Republicans – have become louder after revelations about the extent of his lies, as well as multiple investigations into his business history opened by state and federal authorities.
Santos, however, says he will remain in office.
A representative for Santos did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
