Rep. George Santos’ former campaign treasurer, Nancy Marks, pleaded guilty Thursday to one count of conspiracy to defraud the United States by committing one or more federal offenses.
Marks admitted to filing a list of false donors with the Federal Election Committee in coordination with “co-conspirator number one,” who was a political candidate. Nancy Marks’ attorney, Raymond Perini, identified co-conspirator number one as George Santos on the record.
Marks said the actions took place in New York Congressional District 3 during the 2022 campaign.
The “conspiratorial objects” are wire fraud, false statements, falsification of record or document and aggravated identity theft.
Under the sentencing guidelines, the judge said the range would be 42-48 months behind bars with the guilty plea.
She will be back in court April 12 for sentencing.
