Nassau County legislator calls on FEC to investigate George Santos’ use of ‘ghost donations’


Nassau County Legislator Joshua Lafazan led a press conference Jan. 31 outside Congressman George Santos’ Douglaston office, calling upon the Federal Election Committee (FEC) to include the “ghost donations” from Santos’ 2020 campaign as part of their investigation into him.

Lafazan said believes these false documented donations violate federal law.

His letter to the FEC comes after reports that Santos raised at least $30,000 for his failed 2020 congressional campaign from people who either don’t exist or never resided in the addresses stated in the campaign fundraising disclosures. Additionally, some who were listed that do live at the specified addresses have stated they never donated any money to Santos’ campaign.
