Things are not looking good for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
She has investigators hot on her trail.
And they are after Ocasio-Cortez over this legal violation.
The non-profit Coolidge Reagan Foundation filed a Federal Election Commission complain against Ocasio-Cortez because she gave her boyfriend a house.gov email address.
Only spouses and partners can receive those addresses from a member of Congress.
Ocasio-Cortez’s boyfriend does not fit either of those categories.
Fox News reports:
The new filing also concerns the famous congresswoman’s boyfriend, but focuses on his use of a congressional email account.
The Coolidge Reagan Foundation, a political nonprofit, alleges in the complaint that the New York Democratic lawmaker used her newly found congressional privileges in an unethical manner when she set up the House email address for Roberts.
“This Complaint alleges Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez improperly converted U.S. House resources to her non-official, personal use by obtaining an official ‘@mail.house.gov’ e-mail address for her boyfriend, despite the fact he was not employed by her congressional office,” reads a line from the complaint obtained by Fox News.
“Moreover, it appears she obtained the e-mail address for him by falsely designating him a ‘staff’ member.”
Ocasio-Cortez’s legal woes are mounting.
She is neck deep in another FEC scandal surrounding her Chief of Staff funneling nearly a million dollars to an LLC, which he owned and operated.
Now she has a second Federal Election Commission reporting scandal.
Ocasio-Cortez likes to rail against “dark money” in politics and the practices of swamp lobbyists.
But judging by her conduct, she fits right in along with the rest of the corrupt swamp creatures.
