GOP Rep. George Santos Admits “Personal” Loans to Campaign Came from Other Sources

HeadlineJan 26, 2023

Republican freshman Congressmember George Santos is coming under fresh scrutiny after he filed updated financial reports indicating that over $600,000 of campaign funds were not personal loans, as he had previously claimed. It’s not clear yet where the money came from. On Wednesday, Santos’s campaign notified the Federal Election Commission that it has a new treasurer. The person listed, Thomas Datwyler, denied working for Santos and said his electronic signature was submitted to the FEC without his consent. New York congressmember Santos has faced mounting calls to resign and triggered multiple investigations for lying about large portions of his résumé and life history.
