Santos Swore He’d Never Talk to Me—Then the Phone Rang

From a New York Times story by Grace Ashford headlined “George Santos Swore He’d Never Talk to Me. Then the Phone Rang.”:

It was just after noon on an early September Saturday when the first call came.

It already had been an unusual day. Typically, I’d be tackling a project or cajoling my wife into a day hike near our home in upstate New York. Instead I was in a hotel room in Philadelphia, having just finished a journalism panel on political disinformation — a topic I knew well after nearly a year of covering George Santos.
