NOVI (WJRT) - (10/30/17) - Charges against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and two other former aides mark a new phase in a sprawling investigation into Russia and President Donald Trump.
Manafort and Rick Gates pleaded not guilty to a 12-count indictment.
The other former aide, George Papadopoulos, is cooperating with authorities after pleading guilty to lying to the FBI.
Now, imagine having the same name as one of those indicted Monday...
A financial advisor in Novi is feeling the fallout of the allegations!
CPA George Papadopoulos has no ties to President Trump and says people keep tweeting him about the charges and he just wants to live his life.
He's actually in Greece visiting his mother right now and has been inundated with messages both online and at his home office in Oakland County.
He's chosen humor as a way to cope.
One tweet from "Bob" says "can't wait to watch u try to wriggle out of this one".
Novi's George Papadopoulos tweeted this in response: "I am NOT that guy! Visiting my mother in Greece now and can assure u I am getting so fat eating the dishes she makes me...so no wiggling :)"
