NBC News reports:
A Republican technology firm says it is asking Rep. George Santos, R-N.Y., to correct yet another apparent error on his campaign spending records. Santos reported paying WinRed more than $206,000 to process donations to his 2022 campaign, records show. But that amount doesn’t match up with how much money Santos actually raised.
A Republican fundraising platform, WinRed charges candidates a 3.94% fee for contributions made online by credit card.
At that rate, Santos would have had to have raised more than $5.2 million through WinRed to warrant a $206,000 payment to the firm. Through November, however, his campaign reported total contributions of $1.7 million, including donations that didn’t come through WinRed.

Another mystery in George Santos’ campaign filings: The amount of WinRed fees he’s reported paying exceed rate for donations made to him through the GOP fundraising platform.
WinRed tells me they have asked Santos team to double-check its work. https://t.co/OtnUj2H6dP
