Ocasio-Cortez: Critics 'Crazy' Because 'I Am As Powerful As A Man'

Ocasio-Cortez: Critics 'Crazy' Because 'I Am As Powerful As A Man'

This is not the first billboard JCN has put up in Times Square - the tourist hotspot - targeting Ocasio-Cortez.

It accuses Ocasio-Cortez and Saikat Chakrabarti, her chief of staff, of funneling almost $1 million in contributions from political action committees Chakrabarti established to private companies that he also controlled.

The filings describe these payments as being for "strategic consulting", but the NLPC claims they are part of "an elaborate scheme to avoid proper disclosure of campaign expenditures".

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is questioned by Fox News after a FEC complaint alleges the Democrat lawmaker and her chief of staff illegally moved $885,000 in campaign contributions 'off the books'.


Former FEC commissioner Hans von Spakovsky told the Daily Caller News Foundation that "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".

"These are not minor or technical violations", said Tom Anderson, the director of the group's Government Integrity Project, in a statement.

Adav Noti, the senior director of the Campaign Legal Center and a former FEC lawyer, said the arrangement was highly unusual and seemed meant to obscure the destination of the funds. "I can't even begin to disentangle that".

"We certainly understand the situation that the new members feel, and we're just trying to remind them this is a procedural tool of the minority", said Rep. Katherine Clark, vice chairwoman of the House Democratic Caucus. And so we know what's going on. "You might say from a campaign finance angle that the LLC was essentially operating as an unregistered committee". According to Smith, "The admission makes it open and shut if someone wants to file a complaint with the FEC".


"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 romantic relationship. collectively establish reason to believe these transactions may have violated campaign finance law", reads an FEC complaint filed last week by the Coolidge Reagan Foundation.

Speaking on Instagram-live to her followers while chopping food in her kitchen February 24, Ocasio-Cortez said, "Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don't turn this ship around, and so it's basically like, there's a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very hard".

An FEC spokesman declined to comment on the complaint on Tuesday.
