Santos, 35, faces 10 additional charges, according to the indictment:one count of conspiracy to commit offenses against the United States, two counts of wire fraud, two counts of making materially false statements to the Federal Election Commission, two counts of falsifying records submitted to obstruct the FEC, two counts of aggravated identity theft, and one count of access device fraud.

The new charges were filed just days after Nancy Marks, the treasurer for the Santos campaign, pleaded guiltyto fraud conspiracy and implicated Santos in a scheme to embellish his campaign finance reports with a fake loan and fake donors.

Santos didn’t say much to reporters at the U.S. Capitol Tuesday after the charges were announced, but the Frank Abagnale of Marjorie Taylor Greenes did say, once again, that he will not resign from the position he worked so hard coming up with lies and forgeries in order to get. It’s almost as if his great, big con has gone on too long for him to turn back now. He’d be an embarrassment to the Republican party if he weren’t the perfect living metaphor for today’s GOP.

Santos is due in federal court on Oct. 27 to answer for the additional charges.
