probe against Rep.-elect George Santos is launched by the Nassau County district attorney

Nassau County District Attorney Anne T. Donnelly says she is opening an investigation into Rep.-elect George Santos. An explosive New York Times story detailed lies Santos told about his background. Also unclear is the exact source of the $700,000 Santos claimed to have loaned his campaign. George Santos won an open congressional seat on Long Island held by a Democrat. With that victory, Santos made headlines as the first non-incumbent who is an openly gay Republican to be elected to Congress. Some Democrats have called for Santos not to be seated as a member of Congress.
