Embattled GOP congressman Rep. George Santos named himself as his reelection campaign’s treasurer following his indictment earlier this month.
Santos listed himself as his campaign treasurer in a new filing made to the Federal Elections Commission on Friday.
The updated filing comes just over a week after Santos was hit with 13 federal criminal charges including 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.
The charges came after Santos admitted to lying about his personal and professional background while campaigning for office.
There has been questions about who exactly is serving as Santos’ campaign treasurer before Santos listed himself in that role.
The campaign previously identified a man named Andrew Olson as the treasurer.
However, there were no records to show that Olson was treasurer and his address was that of a mixed-use apartment and commercial building in New York where Santos’ sister lived until earlier this year. CNN reported.
In January the campaign listed Thomas Datwyler as the next treasurer, but Datwyler’s attorney told the FEC that he had not accepted the position.
Santos has announced that he is running for re-election in 2024. Without a treasurer, campaigns cannot spend funds or accept donations.
