Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s world continues to crumble around her.
She’s facing declining poll numbers and her “Green New Deal” is a political albatross that could hand Donald Trump the 2020 election.
To add to her woes, Ocasio-Cortez was caught red-handed violating this one major law.
Conservative activists filed a 21-count complaint alleging Ocasio-Cortez was involved with the Justice Democrats PAC violating campaign finance law.
The Daily Caller reports:
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.
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.
The FEC complaint, first reported by Fox News, also alleges that Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign benefited from a “subsidy scheme” carried out by Justice Democrats. The complaint is the third filed against Ocasio-Cortez in the past five week.
These FEC complaints present more than just a legal headache for Ocasio-Cortez.
She made a name for herself as a crusader against campaign finance corruption.
Videos of her speeches railing against so-called “dark money” garnered millions of views on social media.
But it turns out she is just as deep in the muck of the Washington swamp as any K street lobbyist or establishment insider.
