In the wake of New York Congressman George Santos' unprecedented expulsion from Congress, HBO has acquired the rights to a new book that will serve as the basis for a film chronicling the tumultuous political journey of the former Long Island representative. The movie, titled "The Fabulist: The Lying, Hustling, Grifting, Stealing, and Very American Legend of George Santos," is set to delve into the dramatic events leading to Santos becoming only the sixth member of Congress to be expelled without a prior felony conviction or Confederate ties.
The expulsion occurred last Friday, marking a historic moment in congressional proceedings. . .
