AOC, Meet FEC: Freshman Congresswoman ROCKED by New Federal Complaints

Reporting on the matter has characterized the infraction as a “subsidy scheme”, something that Ocasio-Cortez will likely be forced to answer for should she seek reelection…if not sooner.

Few freshman in Congress have received the sort of attention that New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has in her so-far brief stint on Capitol Hill…but maybe that’s a good thing.

AOC, as she is known, has been an outlier in the congressional world, not only for her youth at age 28, but also for her status as the millennial politico-du-jour.  Her naïveté on certain issues has been readily apparent, however, making her fodder for a number of memes and attacks from all corners of America’s political observers.

This sort of attention has been ostensibly good for AOC, who has used the attacks to galvanize her support.

Unfortunately, those tactics will be useless against the Federal Election Commission, who are now taking a closer look at AOC’s financial dealings.

A conservative group filed a 21-count Federal Election Commission (FEC) complaint against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Wednesday alleging that her unreported affiliation with Justice Democrats PAC during her 2018 primary campaign violated campaign finance laws.

The New York Democrat and her chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, held legal control over Justice Democrats at the same time the political action committee was playing a key role in supporting her campaign, The Daily Caller News Foundation revealed in March.

Just how bad is it?

Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti “engaged in a brazen scheme involving multiple political and commercial entities under their control to violate federal election law, circumvent federal contribution limits and reporting requirements, and execute an unlawful subsidy scheme,” the Coolidge Reagan Foundation’s complaint states.

Reporting on the matter has characterized the infraction as a “subsidy scheme”, something that Ocasio-Cortez will likely be forced to answer for should she seek reelection…if not sooner.
