George Santos Exposed In Another ‘Theft’ Scandal
Newly elected Representative George Santos (R-NY) was reportedly charged with theft for writing bad checks to dog breeders in Pennsylvania in 2017, Politico reports.
“Just days after $15,125 in checks were made out for ‘puppies,’ according to the memo lines, Santos held an adoption event at a Staten Island pet store with his animal rescue charity Friends of Pets United, according to the store’s Instagram account and a person who attended the event,” the publication states.
However, the charges were ultimately dismissed and his record was expunged in 2027, the report says.
Santos claimed that the checks were actually a theft against him, the court documents say. Someone had stolen his checkbook and tried to buy expensive dogs in Amish Country. According to Santos, the checkbook went missing in 2017 and by 2020 he was blaming someone he knew. He claimed he “canceled the checkbook” with the bank after seeing it was gone.
According to the publication, Santos had his criminal record expunged after in 2017.
It’s the second allegation involving bad checks written by Santos who confessed to passing stolen checks in Brazil, where he lived in 2008.
