A Former Aide to Ousted Rep. George Santos Now Employed by Rep. Nancy Mace

In an LA News Center exclusive report, it has been discovered that Gabrielle Lipsky, a former aide to ousted Rep. George Santos, R-N.Y., has been hired by Rep. Nancy Mace, R-S.C. Lipsky, who previously served as Santos’ communications director, began her new role with Mace earlier this month.

Resignation from Santos’ Office

Lipsky’s resignation from Santos’ office came in mid-November following a damning report by the House Ethics Committee. The report found that Santos misused campaign funds and violated criminal law. The House voted to expel Santos on December 1, shortly after the report was released.

Lipsky’s New Role with Mace

Although Lipsky did not respond to multiple emails from LA News Center regarding her new position, her name and email were confirmed by calling Mace’s district office. This hiring comes at a time when Mace’s office has experienced a loss of several senior staffers in recent months, including her chief of staff, deputy chief, and communications director.

Defense of Working for Santos

Last February, Lipsky defended her decision to work for Santos in an interview with Business Insider. As revelations surfaced about Santos lying about his work history, education, and family heritage, Lipsky stated, “At the end of the day, the congressman has a job to do, and he needs people to help him do that.”

Charges Against Santos

Santos is currently facing 23 federal charges related to the misuse of donor funds, identity theft, and other accusations. Additional charges were brought against him in October.

Allegations Against Mace’s Office

Mace has faced her share of allegations as well. Three anonymous sources claimed to the Daily Mail in December that Mace made lewd comments in the office. A Daily Beast report from November alleged that Mace had a “handbook” for staffers, which included requirements such as sending out at least one press release per day and appearing on TV at least nine times per week.

Mace’s Response

When questioned about these allegations, Mace told LA News Center that she had not read the report and dismissed its accusations. She stated, “If someone wants to attack me for working hard and being demanding and wanting to ensure that our staff is organized and working hard for the almost 800,000 constituents that they represent, game on. Bring it.”
