New York Rep. George Santos reportedly owes considerable sums of money to municipal authorities from unpaid traffic violations, according to a media report this week.

The embattled congressman, who is under fire for questionable and false claims he has made over the course of his career, “may owe more than $3,400 in unpaid citations, according to records from New York City and Florida,” CBS News reported on Friday.

Among the alleged unpaid violations include unpaid tolls, expired parking meters, red light violations and double parking infractions. 

The news comes after a car registered to Santos has been cited nearly half a dozen times for speeding in the roughly three months since the congressman was elected in November. 

The Republican is facing multiple investigations and inquiries regarding his purportedly false statements and business dealings over the years, including reportedly an FBI investigation into whether or not he stole money from a fundraiser for a veteran’s dog.
