    That lying son of a bitch who scammed his way into the House of Representatives was arrested this morning.

    From the Guardian Newspaper:

    George Santos arrested on federal criminal charges

    George Santos has been arrested on federal criminal charges, the Associated Press reports.

    Santos, who turned himself into a federal courthouse in New York, has been charged with seven counts of wire fraud, three counts of money laundering, one count of theft of public funds, and two counts of making materially false statements to the House of Representatives.

    US attorney Breon Peace said the indictment “seeks to hold Santos accountable for various alleged fraudulent schemes and brazen misrepresentations.”

    “Taken together, the allegations in the indictment charge Santos with relying on repeated dishonesty and deception to ascend to the halls of Congress and enrich himself,” Peace added.

    The Guardian went on to report:

    The indictment against George Santos has laid out a slew of allegations against the New York congressman, including ways that he allegedly schemed to defraud his candidacy supporters.

    From September to October 2022, Santos “devised and executed a scheme to defraud supporters of his candidacy for the House and to obtain money from them by fraudulently inducing supporters to contribute funds to an [unnamed company] under the false pretense that the money would be used to support [his] candidacy and then actually spending thousands of dollars on the solicited funds on personal expenses, including luxury designer clothing and credit card payments,” the indictment said.

    It went on to allege that Santos told a political consultant to feed his supporters “false information” about the unnamed company, including that it was either a social welfare organization or an independent expenditure committee.

    Santos allegedly told the political consultant to tell his supporters that contributions made to the company would be used on independent expenditures in support of his candidacy.

    However, in reality, the company was neither a social welfare organization nor an independent expenditure committee and upon receiving the contributions, Santos “converted most of those funds to his own personal benefit,” according to the indictment.
