Fetterman paid Santos to film a message for “Bobby from Jersey” on Cameo. Santos has turned to selling personalized videos on the platform following his expulsion last week from Congress after an ethics report accused him of using campaign cash to pay for Botox, content on OnlyFans and more.
“Hey Bobby,” began Santos, who charges circa $200 for a message.
“Uh, look, I don’t think I need to tell you, but these people that want to make you get in trouble and want to kick you out and make you run away, you make them put up or shut up,” he said. “You stand your ground, sir. And don’t get bogged down by all the haters out there. Stay strong. Merry Christmas.”

Fetterman, writing on X, formerly Twitter, said he “thought my ethically-challenged colleague @BobMenendezNJ could use some encouragement given his substantial legal problems.”
“So, I approached a seasoned expert on the matter to give ‘Bobby from Jersey’ some advice,” he added.
Fetterman has repeatedly called for Menendez to leave Congress after the New Jersey lawmaker was indicted in September on bribery charges.
“We have a colleague in the Senate that actually does much more sinister and serious kinds of things, Sen. Menendez. He needs to go,” Fetterman said on Friday’s broadcast of “The View.”
“If you are going to expel Santos, how can you allow somebody like Menendez to remain in the Senate? And Santos’ kind of lies were almost funny,” he added. “And like, he landed on the moon and that kind of stuff. Whereas I think Menendez, I think, is really a senator for Egypt, not New Jersey. So I really think he needs to go.”
Santos responded to Fetterman’s commissioning of him to make the clip, saying he loved it. “I wish I knew the Bobby in question! LOL,” he wrote on X.
