Spectrum New York reports:
Federal prosecutors on Tuesday unsealed new charges against New York Rep. George Santos connected to allegedly charging tens of thousands of dollars to his donors’ credit cards without their knowledge, stealing his family members’ identities and inflating his campaign finance reports to federal election authorities by hundreds of thousands of dollars.
At one point, Santos allegedly charged $12,000 to a donor’s credit card and eventually transferred “the vast majority” of the money into his personal bank account.
Santos on Wednesday vehemently denied the charges, telling reporters he will not accept a plea deal. “The answer is no. I will not take a plea deal,” he said. “I can prove my innocence.” He also refused to resign and maintained that he is still running for reelection.

Facing a superseding indictment with 10 new counts, Rep. Santos says, “No comment” and that he did not have access to his phone during the speaker forum.
“I have no clue of what you guys are talking about.”
