House Ethics Committee launches investigation into George Santos

An ethics probe into allegations that scandal-laden freshman Rep. George Santos, R-N.Y., broke the law during his campaign for Congress has been formally launched. According to a Thursday letter from the chairman and ranking member of the House Committee on Ethics, the committee voted unanimously to establish an investigate subcommittee to look into the allegations that Santos “engaged in unlawful activity” relating to his 2022 campaign. “The Investigative Subcommittee shall have jurisdiction to determine whether Representative George Santos engaged in unlawful activity with respect to his 2022 congressional campaign; failed to properly disclose required information on statements filed with the House; violated federal conflict of interest laws in connection with his role at a firm providing fiduciary services; and/or engaged in sexual misconduct towards an individual seeking employment in his congressional office,” the letter read.
