AOC CAUGHT In BIG TIME SCANDAL! Could Face YEARS Behind Bars!
When it comes to the money raised from donations that are supposed to go towards a political campaign, they are very specific about the things that you can and cannot do with that money.
For example, it’s perfectly fine for a candidate to lease an office space for the campaign staff to work from. Using that money to lease your own apartment on the other hand, not allowed.
Hiring a staff of people and paying them to help you run for office? That’s perfectly fine too.
On the other side of the coin, if you were to pay thousands upon thousands of dollars to a friend or family member that wasn’t working with the campaign and was just hanging around for moral support? Well, wouldn’t you know it….that happens to be illegal.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is reeling after she was busted for “illegal dealings” that the former bartender tried to cover up.
The charges are serious, and the junior New York Representative may see prison time. Her leftist cohorts are running as fast as they can away from Ocasio-Cortez.
After doing further digging, Thompson uncovered the mother of all scandals for any new politician: campaign finance violations. In fact, it is now alleged AOC used her campaign funds to pay her boyfriend, who was not on her staff at the time.
“A Republican group filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission on Wednesday alleging that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign may have illegally funneled thousands of dollars through an allied PAC to boyfriend Riley Roberts,” Fox News reports.
“Members of the Washington, D.C.-based Coolidge Reagan Foundation allege in their complaint that when the Brand New Congress PAC (BNC) — a political arm of Brand New Congress LLC, a company that was hired by Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., to run and support her campaign — paid Roberts for marketing services, it potentially ran afoul of campaign finance law,” Fox News adds.
The complaint highlighted a report from earlier in February by Luke Thompson, who “published an article entitled ‘The Congresswoman Loves the Swamp. Her Wealthy Chief of Staff Used a PAC to Pay Her Boyfriend,’ on Medium, which parses FEC records to reveal evidence Ocasio-Cortez funneled money from her official campaign account to her boyfriend, Riley Roberts.”
