Rep. George Santos, who is charged with fabricating his resume and using several different names over a period of years, has come under fire once more. Santos is accused of defrauding a disabled and homeless veteran of $3,000 that was raised for his cancer-stricken service dog. Richard Osthoff explained that in May 2016, during a trying time in his life, he met the Republican, who at the time went by Anthony Devolder.
The 47-year-old former member of the US Navy was residing alongside Route 9 in Howell, New Jersey when he first learned about the scandalous Republican. He informs the neighborhood newspaper Patch that his employee Sapphire had a potentially fatal stomach tumor, and he was informed that the procedure would cost $3,000 to complete. Osthoff met Santos when a veterinary assistant said, “I know a guy who runs a pet charity who can help you.” Friends of Pets United was the name of the organization. Santos launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for the in need dog Sapphire, and raised $3,000 from it. But as soon as he reached the goal, he allegedly vanished. “He stopped answering my texts and calls,” Osthoff tells Patch.
