Nassau DA Donnelly opens investigation against George Santos

Anne Donnelly, Nassau County’s Republican district attorney, launched an investigation into Republican-elect George Santos after he admitted to lying about his work experience and education.

Santos, 34, admitted Monday that he fabricated key parts of his resume that he announced during his campaign, including that he did not graduate from Baruch College, work for Citigroup or Goldman Sachs, or own real estate.

Santos’ admission came a week after a New York Times report found holes in records he touted during his campaign for New York’s 3rd Congressional District.

Donnelly, a longtime Nassau prosecutor who took office earlier this year, told Newsday in a statement:

“The many fabrications and inconsistencies surrounding Congressman-elect Santos are nothing short of stunning. The people of Nassau County and other parts of the Third District must have an honest and responsible representative in Congress. No one is above the law and if a crime is committed in this county, we will prosecute it.”

Brendan Brosh, a spokesman for the district attorney, told Newsday, “We are looking into the matter.”

The office declined further comment.

Santos did not respond to a request for comment.

Long Island Republican leaders, including incoming Rep. Nick LaLotta (R-Amityville) and Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman, have called on the House Ethics Committee to investigate Santos.

Last week, New York Attorney General Letitia James’ office said it was looking into the matter.

On Tuesday, Santos said on Fox News: “I’m not a fraud. I’m not fake. I didn’t materialize out of nowhere. I’ve worked hella hard to get where I’ve gotten my whole life. I made some mistakes and I own them and now I want to move past them so I can deliver for the American people.”
