George Santos Now Accused Of Extensive Lies About Campaign Finances | HuffPost Latest News

Santos, the new complaint claims, has been “knowingly and willfully concealing the true sources of his campaign’s funding, misrepresenting how his campaign spent its money, and illegally paying for personal expenses with campaign funds. Particularly in light of Santos’s mountain of lies about his life and qualifications for office, the Commission should thoroughly investigate what appear to be equally brazen lies about how his campaign raised and spent money.”

Santos’ campaign finance reports contain numerous red flags, the watchdog notes. One is his claim that he loaned $705,000 to his own campaign, even though 2020 records indicate he only had $55,000 to his name. His claims that he earned millions in 2021 and 2022 from a consulting business are “vague, uncorroborated, and non-credible in light of his many previous lies,” the group alleges.

Santos also appears to have used campaign money to pay for his own residence, the complaint alleges. Santos marked more than $13,000 in his disclosure forms as “apartment rental for staff” or “rent & rent deposit” at a New York address for what actually appears to be his own home in suburban Long Island.
