Despite facing criminal investigations and ethics inquiries, truth-challenged gay Rep. George Santos (R-NY) has filed paperwork announcing his intention to run for reelection in 2024.
A January poll of his constituents showed 78% want him to step down from office.
Rep. George Santos, facing criminal inquiries and ethics investigations, filed a statement of candidacy with the FEC, indicating his intent to run for re-election. The move allows him to continue to raise funds and pay campaign expenses, like legal fees. https://t.co/n0s6JgBQli

From the New York Times:
The statement of candidacy filed with the Federal Election Commission does not guarantee that Mr. Santos, a first-term lawmaker representing parts of Long Island and Queens, will run for office next year.
But it allows Mr. Santos to continue to raise money and spend it on various campaign-related expenses, including paying back the roughly $700,000 he lent to his campaign and paying any potential legal fees connected to the inquiries that he is currently facing.
Local GOP officials in his district, as well as fellow House members from his own party, have called for Santos’ resignation.

Santos had previously said he wouldn't run again; is he just trying to scam donors to pay back his mysterious $700k loan, or has he simply lied as usual?
