George Santos, New York congressman and former drag queen, has been taken into custody. On 9 May, Santos was indicted by federal prosecutors and the following day, surrendered to authorities.
He has been charged with seven counts of wire fraud, three counts of money laundering, one count of theft of public funds and two counts of making materially false statements to the House of Representatives.
Santos, who was once young and had fun at a festival in Brazil, has been rigorously investigated since he was elected earlier this year as a result of his ongoing pattern of fabrications and false statements.
His unverified claims include: everything about his education, his Jewish ancestry, being diagnosed with a brain tumour, his mother surviving 9/11, a volleyball career resulting in a double knee replacement, his financial status and that he walked in New York Fashion Week.
