George Santos, the newly elected congressman from New York's 12th District, is facing multiple investigations into potential financial irregularities and questions about his background. The Federal Election Commission records show suspicious expenditures, and the Eastern District of New York and Nassau County District Attorney are probing his finances and inconsistencies in his résumé. Santos has admitted to fabricating and "embellishing" several claims about his background, and his campaign donors have expressed shock and betrayal. The outcome of these investigations remains to be seen.
