At a glance

  • Embattled NY Rep. George Santos has been slapped with an ethics complaint just one week into his first term as a Congressman.
  • “The nonprofit Campaign Legal Center (CLC) accused the New York Republican of illegally using campaign donations for personal expenses, including to pay rent, and for concealing the origins of the $700,000 Santos said he loaned to his campaign,” reported The Daily Mail.
  • “The concealed true source behind $705,000 in contributions to Santos’s campaign could be a corporation or foreign national — both of which are categorically barred from contributing to federal candidates,” the filing reads as per The Daily Mail. Santos has not yet commented.
