N.Y. Congressman George Santos facing more dishonesty allegations

  • last year
Embattled New York Congressman George Santos, already under fire for apparently making up the entire biography he used to persuade voters, is now accused of pocketing $3,000 he raised on Go-Fund-Me, which was intended for a homeless veteran's dying dog. Navy veteran Richard Osthoff says he was living on the streets in New Jersey when his service dog, Sapphire, developed a tumor. Another veteran referred him to a pet charity, he says, to help raise money for his dog to have surgery. That organization was allegedly run by Santos, using the fictitious name Anthony Devolder.
