Watch: Fabulist George Santos Is Now on Cameo Saying 'Let the Haters Hate'
Emell Adolphus READ TIME: 2 MIN.
George Santos might be officially a former congressperson after the House voted to expel him from his role as a Rep. for New York, but he seems to be determined to still make a buck off his career as a political pariah.
As reported by The Hill, Santos has officially joined Cameo and is selling personalized videos for $200 a pop.
He is marketing himself as a "Former Congressional 'Icon'" on the platform, and customers can request holiday messages and birthday wishes. Customers can also request for him to share some gossip or give a roast.
If someone has something to get off their chest, they can send him a direct message for $10.
"They can boot me out of Congress but they can't take away my good humor or my larger than life personality, nor my good faith and the absolute pride I have for everything I've done," said Santos.
What exactly he has "done" besides exploit his position still remains to be seen.
On the day of his expulsion, Santos told reporters that he hasn't ruled out a future appearance on "Dancing with the Stars."
"Today, I would not do 'Dancing with the Stars,'" he said. "Maybe in the future if I find the chutzpah to go on television and embarrass myself with my four left feet, maybe."
However, he definitely plans to "write" a book, he said. And, according to him, he has "refused every single offer for a documentary – and there have been plenty."
There's no telling if there is any truth behind Santos' "plenty" claim. But there is apparently an HBO offer to turn the book "The Fabulist: The Lying, Hustling, Grifting, Stealing, and Very American Legend of George Santos" into a movie, reported Deadline.

"I thought my ethically-challenged colleague
@BobMenendezNJ could use some encouragement given his substantial legal problems," tweeted Fetterman. See Santos' message below.
