1) Your cousin is dishonest. Your brother more so.
2) Your cousin is dishonest. Your brother even more so.

3) Your cousin is a crook. Your brother more so.
4) Your cousin is a crook. Your brother even more so.

Which of the above are grammatical?
Which are idiomatic?

Gratefully,
Navi

I don't particularly like any of them, but they are all fairly idiomatic.
