GOP liar George Santos likely “violated” campaign finance rules

The New York Times The report said mysterious backers of Jorge Santos “may have run afoul” of campaign finance rules.

The request came from a Republican loyalist on behalf of Redstone Strategy, which the donor described in an email as an “independent spending” group that was backing Mr. Santos’ bid to flip a Democratic House seat in New York. The group had already raised $800,000 and was looking to raise another $700,000, according to emails reviewed by The New York Times. The donor arrived: A few days later, on Oct. 21, he wired $25,000 to a Wells Fargo bank account belonging to RedStone Strategies. Three months later, Mr. Santos is now in Congress, but it is unclear where the donor money went. The Federal Election Commission said there was no evidence that Redstone Strategies was registered as a political group and did not appear to have any records documenting its donors, contributions or expenditures.
