Nonprofit files complaint with FEC over George Santos’ fishy campaign finance practices


Just a couple of days after getting officially sworn-in as a member of Congress, admitted resume fabricator George Santos (R-Queens/Long Island) was hit with a Federal Election Commission (FEC) complaint alleging that his campaign finance practices during his Congressional campaign last year violated federal law.

The complaint was brought by the Campaign Legal Center — a Washington D.C. based campaign finance law focused nonprofit. It alleges that Santos violated the Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) by hiding the actual sources of his campaign war chest, misrepresenting how he spent his campaign funds and using those dollars for personal expenses during both his 2020 and 2022 bids for Congress.
