Two New York Democratic congressmen filed an ethics complaint Tuesday against scandal-plagued Rep. George Santos, urging the House Ethics Committee to investigate the newly sworn-in lawmaker. 

Santos, the lawmakers wrote, “misled voters in his District about his ethnicity, his religion, his education, and his employment and professional history, among other things.”

Reps. Ritchie Torres of the Bronx and Dan Goldman of Brooklyn and Manhattan submitted the complaint, hand-delivering it to Santos’ office Tuesday morning.

Santos, a Republican representing New York’s 3rd district in Queens and on Long Island, has been under fire ever since The New York Times revealed he fabricated large parts of the biography he shared during his campaign, from his family heritage to his educational background and work history. Santos later admitted to some of the falsehoods.

There are also mounting questions about his finances and the more than $700,000 that he reported loaning his campaign this past cycle. It is his finances, in particular, that Torres and Goldman want the ethics panel to investigate.

“Mr. Santos’ financial disclosure reports in 2020 and 2022 are sparse and perplexing,” the complaint reads. “At a minimum, it is apparent that he did not file timely disclosure reports for his most recent campaign. Moreover, his own public statements have contradicted some information included in the 2022 financial disclosure and confirmed that the 2022 financial disclosure failed to disclose other required information.”

The House Ethics Committee is made up of an equal number of Republicans and Democrats. A staffer for the panel declined to comment. 

Santos continued to duck questions from journalists Tuesday, though did tell some reporters that he had done nothing unethical.

In a separate letter made public Tuesday, Hudson Valley Rep. Pat Ryan and three other Democrats wrote to Speaker Kevin McCarthy, calling Santos a “direct threat to national security.” 

They demanded he be barred from accessing classified information. 

The complaint and the letter come as prosecutors at the local and state level say they are looking into Santos.

The New York attorney general, Letitia James, said her team would review Santos’ claims. And a spokesperson for the Republican district attorney in Nassau County said her office is “looking into the matter.”

Federal prosecutors in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District are also reportedly investigating him.

On Monday, the Campaign Legal Center filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission, calling for a probe into Santos and “brazen lies about how his campaign raised and spent money.

So far, top Republicans are staying largely tight lipped. 

The fourth ranking House Republican, Elise Stefanik of Upstate New York, said this when asked if she regretted endorsing Santos during the 2022 election: “This is gonna play itself out. Look, he was the Republican nominee. He was the duly elected member of Congress and he was seated.”
