Rep. George Santos surrenders to face federal charges in Central Islip

On Wednesday morning, Congressman George Santos voluntarily turned himself in at the Alfonse M. D’Amato courthouse in Central Islip to confront multiple federal charges.

The charges against him include fraud, money laundering, theft of public funds, and making false statements, ABC 7 reported.

Following his surrender, Congressman Santos is scheduled to make an appearance before a judge later in the day, specifically after 1:00 p.m.

The charges brought against him comprise seven counts of wire fraud, three counts of money laundering, one count of theft of public funds, and two counts of materially false statements made to the House of Representatives.

Merely a month after announcing his intention to seek re-election, Congressman George Santos now faces a fresh wave of charges.

These allegations have sparked a heated response from his political adversaries, who wasted no time in demanding his resignation from Congress on Tuesday night.
