George Santos Career & Family

Santos was elected to the US Congress in the year 2022 as a member of the Republican Party in the country. According to the recent reports that have been released for the charges against him, it has been said that Santos had earlier confessed to being responsible for a check fraud case in Brazil, in the year 2008. But he had failed to appear in the court in 2011 and due to this, the case was left unresolved. The case has been revived in late 2022 by the authorities in Brazil.

Recently, on Wednesday, 21st June 2023, George Santos pleaded not guilty to various charges against him which included the charges of wire fraud and money laundering. He chose to plead not guilty to these charges in the federal court in the city of New York and was released on a 500,000 USD bond. There has been another ruling by a federal judge which has stated that the names that have been included as the guarantors in the mysterious bail of Santos will be revealed to the public. This ruling was also made to reject the politician’s claim that the disclosure of the bail guarantor’s names would be threatening to the security of those people.

It is also possible that Santos tries to modify the terms of bail if in case, the guarantors decide to withdraw their 500,000 USD guarantee used for the bail. Following this, the congressman has also been seen being willing to go to jail instead of resorting to revealing the names of his bail guarantors by himself. He has pleaded not guilty to a 13-count indictment in the federal court to charges of fraud, theft of public funds, and money laundering. These names which are a part of his bail release guarantee are cited as a huge public interest, as there were a minimum of 11 media houses who are in the line for releasing the names.

George was charged by the federal prosecutors in the court with fraud against the campaign donors, wherein he was accused of soliciting the donors to support his campaign with their money. The charges suggest that he had used these funds to engage in personal use for himself. This personal use included various high-amount purchases such as buying designer clothing and paying off his personal debt on credit cards.

It was also put up as a charge against him that he committed unemployment fraud and had received about a total of 24,000 USD as unemployment benefits during the COVID-19. It is also reported that he held a full-time position at an investment firm and lied about his income during disclosure which has to be made with the clerk of the House of Representatives. It must be noted that the federal charges mentioned in the long list, there are other scandals that he has faced during such a short tenure of his political career.

These staggering numbers of various scandals and the nature of what has been alleged have resulted in Santos being seen as a sort of national celebrity all over the country. The charges had started to come to notice in the beginning with only the lies about his resume.

These charges were then added to the list of frauds that are alleged to have involved him. This includes the charges of fraud for using the campaign donor’s money for personal use and providing bad checks to various Amish dog breeders. For several days in recent weeks, there has been an update that tells of a new lie and is related to him directly. Santos had also been implicated in a 2017 case of a scheme that was related to skimming debit card information from the ATMs in Seattle.

It has also been noted that in the short term, the 13-count indictment will not be able to bring any change on a big scale. It has been seen that in the past, if any Congress Member is criminally charged, then they do not take up committee assignments from that point. But in George’s case, he has already given up the positions on the committee at the beginning of 2023 after a meeting with Kevin McCarthy. Kevin had also hinted that if George is going to be criminally convicted then he will be required to resign by himself.

This is true as there are many examples of the members who were charged criminally and were then expelled because they did not resign. In an interview with the Vox, Pam Panzenback, who is also the Republican Mayor of Glen Cove, in New York, also stated her disappointment for Santos. She also added that Santos had “no sense of reality” and that she had also gone for help from various other members of the Republican Party when she faced constituent issues.
