Conning The Conman: Texas Man Tried To Scam George Santos

In an ironic twist of fate, a man from El Paso, Texas may have tried to con disgraced former Rep. George Santos throughout 2023.

Court documents obtained by the Press reveal that Hector Medina Jr., going under the name “Michael Soto,” allegedly attempted to promise Santos a way out of his legal troubles in exchange for large sums of money.

Santos is not directly named in the court documents, but the documents mention “July 2023 text messages and videos sent by Medina to the phone number of the United States Congressman for New York’s Third Congressional District,” identifying the former congressman as “Individual 1.”
