The age of the con is here.

Long Island Republican George Santos won a key election by vaunting his biography as the biracial grandson of Holocaust survivors. He’s likely soon to be sworn in, admitting only to the peccadillo of “résumé embellishment”. The thing about Santos is that nothing about him can be trusted. Sam Bankman-Fried’s FTX was designed to be a vehicle for him to lend money to himself to make risky trades. He might have been fooling himself as much as he was fooling anyone else. Most Americans don’t understand crypto, but they understand lots of other startups that do.
