Admitted liar Rep. George Santos has reached a deal with Brazilian prosecutors that will allow him to avoid a trial and pay back a man whom he swindled out of $1,300, a report said Friday.
Under the deal, Santos will formally admit to the crime and agree to repay his victim, a clerk who lives in the Rio de Janeiro area, according to documents reviewed by CNN.
The non-prosecution agreement — which is allowed in certain non-violent cases in the country — notes the Long Island congressman is now gainfully employed and “re-socialized,” the report said.
Prosecutors agreed to the deal last week.
Santos told police in 2010 that he used bad checks from a stolen checkbook to pay for the $1,300 in clothes.
In an interview with The Post in January, Santos denied committing a crime in the South American country.
“I am not a criminal here — not here or in Brazil or any jurisdiction in the world,” Santos said. “Absolutely not. That didn’t happen.”
Santos, a Republican who represents parts of Queens and Nassau County, garnered international headlines when he was exposed as a serial fabulist and fraud after his election to Congress.
Santos lied about a host of events from his past, including what jobs he’s held, his religion and his time purportedly spent playing college volleyball.
The compulsive liar also claimed his mother developed cancer because she was near Ground Zero during the 9/11 terror attacks, but she was not in the country that day.
