NEW YORK -- Former Rep. George Santos may have lost his $174,000 of federal income, but he's still raking in dough by making personalized videos on Cameo for $500 each. 

In an exclusive interview with CBS New York, Santos said it's going far better than he expected. 

"How much money have you made and are you going to surpass the amount of money you could've made in Congress in a whole year?" he was asked. 

"I can tell you that by the end of this week, that is actually factual. I will have made more money in seven days than I would've made in an entire year in Congress," said Santos. 

Santos was expelled from Congress on Dec. 1 after a House Ethics Committee report found "substantial evidence" he repeatedly broke the law.
