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.

The shining light of the new Democratic Party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is in a lot of hot water. Last week we reported on the AOC scandal surrounding her boyfriend, Riley Roberts. Conservative reporter Luke Thompson had discovered AOC’s live-in boyfriend had an official “” email address, and the funny thing was Mr. Roberts wasn’t listed as a paid staffer.

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.

It’s not illegal for [Ocasio-Cortez] to pay her boyfriend, but it appears that they created some sort of scheme to avoid claiming the money [as a campaign expense],” Dan Backer, a D.C.-based attorney who filed the complaint on behalf of the foundation, told Fox News. “What exactly did he do for that money?”

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.”

The complaint added: “The timing and amounts of these transactions, the use of two affiliated entities as intermediaries, the vague and amorphous nature of the services Riley ostensibly provided, the magnitude of these transactions compared to both the limited funds the campaign had raised at the time and the total amount of its expenditures, and the romantic relationship between Ocasio-Cortez and Riley collectively establish reason to believe these transactions may have violated campaign finance law.”
