Cortez ‘s chief of staff in heap big trouble facing jail time UPDATE


 

 

If we had a decent GOP AG they would go after the Cortex with guns ablazing.

UPDATE: A Million bucks ain’t no small change!

According to a Monday afternoon Washington Times report, the Chief of Staff to freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has been accused in a Federal Elections Commission (FEC) complaint of hiding more than $1 million in campaign cash, and funneling it into two companies that he owns. (RELATED: AOC’s Personal Friends Stand To Profit From Green New Deal).

“Saikat Chakrabarti set up Brand New Congress PAC to collect and bundle donations for newbie politicians including Ms. Ocasio-Cortez,” the report said. “He then diverted more than $1 million to two of his companies that did campaign work, skirting reporting requirements, said the complaint by National Legal and Policy Center [NPCL].”

Chakrabarti ran Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign, and subsequently became her Chief of Staff upon her election.

“These are not minor or technical violations. We are talking about real money here,” director of NLPC’s Government Integrity Project Tom Anderson reportedly said. “In all my years of studying FEC reports, I’ve never seen a more ambitious operation to circumvent reporting requirements.”

Big League Politics 

Though I have to question whether it is the Dems themselves who may want to get her removed from the picture.

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti obtained majority control of Justice Democrats PAC in December 2017, according to archived copies of the group’s website, and the two appear to retain their control of the group, according to corporate filings obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. If the Federal Election Commission (FEC) finds that the New York Democrat’s campaign operated in affiliation with the PAC, which had raised more than $1.8 million before her June 2018 primary, it would open them up to “massive reporting violations, probably at least some illegal contribution violations exceeding the lawful limits,” former FEC commissioner Brad Smith said.

Ocasio-Cortez never disclosed to the FEC that she and Chakrabarti, who served as her campaign chair, controlled the PAC while it was simultaneously supporting her primary campaign, and former FEC commissioners say the arrangement could lead to multiple campaign finance violations. The group backed 12 Democrats during the 2018 midterms, but Ocasio-Cortez was the only one of those to win her general election.

“If the facts as alleged are true, and a candidate had control over a PAC that was working to get that candidate elected, then that candidate is potentially in very big trouble and may have engaged in multiple violations of federal campaign finance law, including receiving excessive contributions,” former Republican FEC commissioner Hans von Spakovsky told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

    That’s been my guess from the start of this story. I have to assume most dems and some repubs do this kind of stuff all the time. Maybe a little more sophisticated. Hopefully they have bullseyes drawn on those two loudmouth moslem vermin bitches as well. You can’t hit a ‘news’ page without images of that human garbage staring back at you. Another reason I like whatfinger.com Very few images.

    It didn’t take her long to learn the ropes did it?! It is going to be interesting to see if anything comes from this, we are talking about allot of money here and of course nobody seems to be talking about it. Where are all the Republicans making a big deal out of this so that she cannot get away with it?! It is so frustrating!

    The only way we are going to get rid of the corruption infesting our government is to take money out of the equation.

    Get rid of all contributions and participation in campaigns and elections by all entities except constituents.

    But she’s the one “in charge”!
    FEC is a joke.
    Obama mocked it with his multiple oversea donations of $25 (laundered campaign contributions).
    Nothing will come of this, except hopefully political repercussions.
    Did Nancy provoke this?

    I’m no longer sure what “big trouble” means. Hillary was in big trouble, and she’s thinking of a new run for the presidency. What must we think of any political establishment where there are no consequences for criminal activity?
