The feisty Congressman George Santos, RN.Y., admitted that he dressed as a woman “for fun” at a party in Brazil, but denied ever performing as a drag queen.

Santos made the comments to reporters as he was picked up from the airport on Saturday, days after he first denied reports of his drag queen past as “categorically false”.

“No, I wasn’t a drag queen in Brazil, guys. I was young and had fun at a festival. Sue me for having a life,” Santos told reporters, according to the New York Post.

Santos is facing widespread calls for his resignation from Congress for lying about his resume during the campaign. Santos has admitted to making up most of his education and work history.

Images showing Santos apparently dressed in drag were released last week. Eula Rocharde, a drag queen who says she met Santos during her time in Brazil, said Santos performed under the name “Kitara” between 2005 and 2008.

Santos initially completely rejected these allegations before acknowledging having dressed as a woman this weekend.

“The latest media obsession that I’m a drag queen or ‘acted’ like a drag queen is categorically false,” Santos argued on Twitter.

“The media continues to make outrageous claims about my life as I am working to get results. I will not be distracted or disturbed by this,” he continued.

Santos has been plagued by a series of scandals since he was elected to Congress in November. Another recent incident saw a veteran homeless accused him of stealing $3,000 in money raised to pay for her dog’s surgery.

Santos also denied this report. He said he is not aware of the alleged scheme, which involved a charity he claimed to have founded.

“False. I have no idea who it is,” Santos told Semafor when asked about the matter.

Santos faced his first major call to resign when Nassau County Republican leaders condemned him in a January 11 press conference. Nassau County is in its New York congressional district.

“George Santos’ campaign last year was a campaign of deceit, lies and fabrication,” Nassau County Republican Party President Joe Cairo said in a statement. “He has no seat on the Nassau County Republican Committee, nor should he serve in public service, nor as an elected official. He is not welcome here at GOP HQ.”

Santos has been involved in several local, federal and international investigations into allegations of fraud and fabrication from his past. During his campaign for Congress, Santos falsely claimed that he graduated from college with a degree in finance and worked for Goldman Sachs and Citibank. Nassau County District Attorney Anne Donnelly opened an investigation into Santos in late December.
