Lying New York Congressman, George Santos has been charged with federal crimes and could be hauled in front of a judge at Brooklyn’s Eastern District court as soon as Wednesday, according to multiple reports Tuesday afternoon. He is expected to turn himself in. The indictment are sealed and the exact nature of the charges are not immediately clear. However, Santos had been under scrutiny for lying about his life and professional background, including fundraising practices during his 2022 House campaign.
Santos, 34, made national headline news late last year when it was uncovered that he lied to secure a House seat to represent New York’s 3rd Congressional District. The embattled congressman confessed to a series of spectacular fabrications about his background and work experience, including lying about being Jewish and being related to Holocaust survivors.
