"House Republicans keep running into the problem of embellished resumes and—oddly—sketchy GoFundMe fundraisers.

Tennessee Republican Rep. Andy Ogles reportedly raised more than $23,000 on the fundraising platform in 2014, pledging to use the money to build a children’s burial ground named for his stillborn child. The burial ground was never built, however, and Ogles won’t say what he did with the money, according to Nashville TV station WTVF.

This is on top of New York Rep. George Santos’ own GoFundMe problems, which are reportedly under investigation by the FBI.

Ogles is one of the most right-wing members of the GOP caucus that won back the House last November. After winning a primary that virtually secured election in his safe Republican district last year, Ogles said his campaign was animated by a “political war, a cultural war, and… spiritual war” against the left."
