George Santos' company moves HQ from Merritt Island penthouse to Melbourne mail store. (Florida Today, John McCarthy)

There goes the neighborhood. Mr. Devolder, or is it Mr. Santos?  Louche lying certified tool, louche liar, one of the four (4) votes by which Republicans have now taken the House of Representatives, a "regulatory capture" that will go down in infamy.  From Florida Today: 

George Santos' company moves HQ from Merritt Island penthouse to Melbourne mail store

The Devolder Organization LLC, the supposed source of disgraced Rep. George Santos's wealth, has changed its headquarters from a penthouse on Merritt Island to a mail-services store in Melbourne. The move came just as FLORIDA TODAY was preparing a story about Santos's Brevard County connections.

Santos, a Republican, was elected in November to represent New York's 3rd Congressional District, which includes parts of the New York City borough of Queens and Long Island.

New York Times story published Dec. 19 called into question large parts of Santos' resume noting that the Wall Street companies he said he worked for had no record of him. Similar replies came from schools he supposedly attended. Further investigations found a long list of discrepancies in Santos biography as well as a history of financial and legal woes.

A closer look:Rep. George Santos' finances are raising questions. Here's what public records show.

For at least part of the time he was running for Congress, Santos was working for Harbor City Capital, a Melbourne-based "investment firm" that was shut down by the Securities and Exchange Commission as being nothing more than a Ponzi scheme.

When Santos first ran unsuccessfully for Congress in 2020 his financial disclosure form filed that May listed no assets and only $55,000 in income from a company that held conferences for investors.

The financial disclosure report Santos filed in September 2022 claimed he had assets worth between $2.5 million and $10 million and had an income of $750,000. The only liability listed was a car loan from Westlake Financial, a company that specializes in sub-prime auto financing.
