The payments, though later removed in revised filings, raise new questions for the embattled GOP congressman from New York

A month later, in amended reports, those listed expenditures were gone. Campaigns generally are not required to itemize payments under $200, so the removal of the “anonymous” payments reverted, in a way, to customary practice.

, with particular attention directed to more than $700,000 that he claims to have loaned his 2022 campaign.Santos’s campaign on Tuesday issued a slew of amendments to previous FEC filings, seeking to address concerns raised by the FEC’s analysis division on issues ranging from allegedly missing donor information to the possibility that the campaign had accepted contributions beyond the allowable limit.

“It certainly deepens questions about the repeated payments just under $200, and about where that money was really going,” said Brendan Fischer, a lawyer with expertise in campaign finance and the deputy executive director of the watchdog group Documented. The amended filings submitted Tuesday also intensified the spotlight on the money Santos has claimed to have loaned his campaign. In filings to the FEC in 2021 and 2022, Santos reported giving his campaign three loans totaling $705,000.

'the expenditures by Santos’s campaign, which have not been previously reported, were in amounts just under $200, the threshold that would trigger a requirement for the campaign to keep receipts or other documentation.' I'm sure there's *nothing* nefarious going on there :)

Literally *everything about this stinker stinks.

New questions arise around George Santos' campaign loans | CNN PoliticsThe campaign of embattled Rep. George Santos on Tuesday filed updated reports with federal regulators that appear to raise fresh questions about the source of the substantial personal loans he said he made to his campaign. It should not/cannot take this long to remove someone like this egregiously compromised person from power. He is a clear and present national security risk. This is not some abstract exercise. Our legal system must do better, more quickly, to prevent any further damage. Worse than Maxine Watters giving her daughter large amounts of campaign cash?🤔
