A new individual was named as the campaign committee’s treasurer on Saturday after George Santos named himself in that position for a while. This is the latest development in a months-long drama involving perplexing documents that his propaganda has been made with certain federal authorities. George Santos was listed as his campaign’s treasurer in the first filing, which was submitted to the FEC late on Friday afternoon. But the next day, the committee changed Santos’ name to Jason D. Boles.

George Santos Involved In 13-Count Unlawful Allegations
A bit above a week ago, federal prosecutors revealed a 13-count unlawful allegation against the NY Republican, accusing him of engaging in wire fraud, obtaining the pandemic unemployment benefits through fraud, and giving false information about his earnings on application forms he gave as a candidate to the US House of Representatives. He has entered a not-guilty plea and disputed the accusations.
On Saturday, George Santos justified the modifications, claiming they were made to make sure of compliance. The new congressman posted on Twitter that he intended to control the above rebuke. Thus they would keep focusing on professionals with expertise in the matter as the foundation of their campaign. Concerns over the recognition of George Santos’ campaign treasurer have long been there. Although Santos’ campaign named Andrew Olson as its new treasurer this year, neither federal nor state records indicated that he was the treasurer of other political bodies or federal committees active in the state of New York.
The location connected to Olson and George Santos’ campaign back when he was named treasurer was a mixed-utilized apartment and business building in NYC, where the congressman’s sister had lived up until the beginning of this year.
