TALLAHASSEE — The heart of the federal case against infamous U.S. Rep. George Santos on fraud and money-laundering charges runs through companies in Brevard County, according to federal investigators.
The indictment released Wednesday refers to two Brevard County companies created in 2021, about the time Santos began running for Congress on Long Island. It also identifies a Melbourne-based investment firm where Santos, R-New York, had worked that had been accused by the Securities and Exchange Commission of running a Ponzi scheme.
It’s not the first time Santos, elected in 2022, and his past have cut a course through Central Florida.
