WASHINGTON D.C. — (01-09-23) — Openly Gay Rep. George Santos (R-NY) did a fast walk to his office as reporters attempted to hammer him over the latest accusations against the freshmen congressmen.
On Monday, news broke of new ethics filings against George Santos who has admitted to lying about everything from his heritage to his employment and education history and even how his own mother died.
“You’re accused of fabricating almost every single part of your life. Why do you do it? Why do you deserve to represent the people of New York?” says ABC’s Congressional correspondent Rachel Scott in a clip she shared on Twitter.
“Did you illegally…” Scott adds as another reporter jumps in, “There are some campaign finance concerns, in fact, what you’re finding…”
“Can you give me a little space, personal space place, A little personal space,” Santos and a staffer then say, as Santos enters an elevator.
“Why won’t you answer our questions?” Scott asks.
“Congressman, you seem to be dodging questions about your finances and about your background,” says another reporter.
“Congressman, what about those new accusations?” asks another.
Santos ignores questions again: “I’ll be addressing the media soon… on my time.” pic.twitter.com/nMfwYH8fwc

End Citizens United announced on Monday that there were three new ethics complaints against Santos, over alleged campaign finance violations.
“Congressman Santos has shown a blatant disregard for the law and has flagrantly brushed aside the transparency voters deserve from their elected officials,” End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller told Insider in a statement. “His actions are not only unethical, but illegal, and call into question his ability to serve. The FEC, the DOJ, and the OCE should immediately begin investigations and hold him accountable for his shady and unlawful actions.” said Muller.
The latest accusation accuses Santos of violating “the Ethics in Government Act by not only filing a required financial disclosure almost a year late,” but also by not allegedly fabricating sources of contributions — including his own self-funding.
