Not So Model Behavior: Santos’ Latest Potential Criminal Activity Shows Grim Future For Struggling Congressman

The alleged Vogue model engaged in more suspicious and potentially criminal campaign activity this week

This week, George Santos amended his FEC filings to backtrack on his past statements to say that the $500,000 he gave his campaign was not, in fact, a personal loan as he’s previously insisted.

Yet, Santos still “did not say where the money came from, when the loan was due, or what entity, if any, backed the money.”

The move was only worsened when a veteran campaign finance treasurer, Thomas Datwyler, alleged that Santos and his campaign wrongly listed him as their treasurer on their amended filings.

“It’s completely illegal to sign somebody else’s name on a federal filing without their consent. That is a big, big no-no,” Datwyler’s attorney said.

It begs the question, did Santos’ team forge a signature in their federal filings? 

And did Anthony D’Esposito know his joint fundraising committee with Santos was also included in the Santos campaign’s potentially illegal amended statements this week? 

As early as August, Santos’ shady finances and clear track record of misleading voters and authorities raised serious questions, and for months Santos has refused to admit the source of his suspicious funds at every opportunity.

DCCC Spokesperson Nebeyatt Betre:
“Santos has proven time and time again that he’s unfit to serve, and if Santos’ criminal activity keeps going at this rate, Kevin McCarthy might actually be forced to keep his word and remove Santos from Congress once and for all.”
