AG James’ office “looking into” George Santos allegations


New York Attorney General Letitia James’ office says it is “looking into a number of issues” raised about Congressman-elect George Santos in a New York Times article, but did not specify which issues or if there is a formal investigation underway.

The Times article called into question large parts of Santos’ background, including his education, past employment, nonprofit work, and financial dealings. Santos, a Republican, won in the November election against Democrat Robert Zimmerman for a seat in New York’s 3rd congressional district.
