Didn’t Ocasio-Cortez run on “total transparency” and a refusal to accept PAC money?
If the complaint goes further, I guess we can expect her to accuse FEC attorneys of “cat-calling.”
Two political action committees founded by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s top aide funneled over $1 million in political donations into two of his own private companies, according to a complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission on Monday.
The cash transfers from the PACs — overseen by Saikat Chakrabarti, the freshman socialist Democrat’s chief of staff — run counter to her pledges to increase transparency and reduce the influence of “dark money” in politics.
Chakrabarti’s companies appear to have been set up for the sole purpose of obscuring how the political donations were used….
Tom Anderson, director of the National Legal and Policy Center’s Government Integrity Project, said: “It appears Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her associates ran an off-the-books operation to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars, thus violating the foundation of all campaign finance laws: transparency.”….
It does seem to me that AOC learned how to spend taxpayer’s money very quickly! Of course that pretty much describes a true Socialist-one who spends other people’s money! I think an investigation is in order here! The New Green Deal is apparently only for “other” people ! Uh-huh! Come to think of it, Nancy Pelosi and Bernie Sanders have espoused that theory for years!
For a long time, there has been a concern about being on the cover of Sports Illustrated was a curse. AOC was just on the cover of Rolling Stone. I think RS just told SI, Hold My Beer.
