Rep. George Santos now says campaign loan didn't come from his personal funds

Source: NBC News

Rep. George Santos, R-N.Y., made a significant revision to his 2022 campaign filings Tuesday by specifying that a $500,000 loan he made to the campaign didn't come from his personal funds.

The initial filing in September included a checked box saying the hefty loan came from the "personal funds of the candidate." In the new filing, which was first reported by the Daily Beast, that box is unchecked.

The amended filing, however, provides no new information about the source of the funds it says only that the loan came from the candidate but wasn't his personal money.

Adding to the discrepancies, another of his numerous filings on Tuesday still lists the $500,000 as coming from his personal funds.

2. That does it! Along with any Kardashian

I will no longer read any article that starts with "George Santos says..." nor will I ever open an article that begins with "Kim Kardashian wore.."

4. If the loan funds were NOT from Santos, then this was an illegal campaign contribution

I suspect that Santos' tax returns do not show Santos declaring the income necessary to make this "loan"

8. I get that

But the FEC is toothless and spineless.
That he lied and directly loaned his campaign money straight from Russia, won't matter....and he knows it
