Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) just can’t seem to stay out of trouble.
The Democrat has been hit with yet another FEC complaint, which alleges she and her campaign manager ran a “subsidy scheme” in violation of campaign laws.
“The crux of the complaint, which was given exclusively to Fox News in advance of its filing Wednesday, accused Ocasio-Cortez and her campaign manager, Saikat Chakrabarti, of overseeing a ‘shadowy web’ of political action committees (PACs) that allowed them to raise more cash than they could have legally,” Fox News reported.
The report continued: “It also alleged that a limited liability company (LLC) was created to avoid federal expenditure requirements by offering Ocasio-Cortez and other Democratic candidates political consulting services at a price so low that the company apparently shut down before the election was even over.”
The complaint alleges “Ocasio-Cortez, Chakrabarti (now her chief of staff), the Justice Democrats PAC, the Brand New Congress PAC and Brand New Congress LLC as the overlapping entities that aimed to “subsidize cheap assistance for Ocasio-Cortez and other candidates at rates far below market value,” according to the Fox News report.
In addition to her legal problems, AOC has also made repeated gaffes, severely embarrassing Democrats.
She most recently claimed that Congress passed the 22nd Amendment to prevent FDR of serving another term.
The only problem? The amendment was passed in 1947. FDR died in 1945.
Let's just hope Democrats keep letting her talk through the 2020 election.
