On Monday, Santos took to social media to announce that he is now selling Cameo videos while dressed as Kitari Ravache.

"I've decided to bring Kitara out of the closet after 18 years!" Santos shared, along with a direct link to purchase a video message.

One user shared a screenshot showing that Santos is selling the video for $350, coming to $410 after taxes.

Last year, Santos was indicted on felony charges, including fraud and theft. He was then voted out of Congress in December after an ethics report "unanimously concluded" that he knowingly filed false campaign financial reports and engaged in fraudulent conduct while in office.

During his brief time in politics, Santos was caught lying on countless occasions and inadvertently built a comical reputation for it.

When reports revealed that he had performed as Kitari years before he became a politician, Santos denied it, calling the claims "categorically false."

But as Santos has been desperately holding on to the bizarre fame he gained as a congressman, his revival of something he once lied about seems to be his newest strategy.

Since his expulsion from Congress, Santos has maintained a strong social media presence, and days after he was vacated, he began creating content on Cameo, a website that allows public figures to create personalized video messages for users.

His Cameo videos and social media presence initially attracted a lot of attention, but in recent months, his numbers have noticeably declined as America has become less interested in him.

His biggest moment came when comedian Jimmy Kimmel made a segment on his late-night show where he played a compilation of Santos reading bizarre scripts he sent over as a joke.

Santos is now suing Kimmel over the segment, arguing the comedian violated the platform's terms of service by sharing the clips, which he "wholly owns."
