    Ocasio-Cortez And Her Chief Of Staff ‘Could Be Facing Jail Time’ If Their Control Over PAC Was Intentionally Hidden, Former FEC Commissioner Says


    1. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and a top aide appear to control an outside PAC credited with being the central force behind her June 2018 primary victory.
    2. One former Federal Election Commission member thinks there would be a “serious investigation” if a complaint were filed, noting that the probe could potentially result in civil penalties or even jail time for Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff.
    3. A second former commissioner said there were possibly “multiple violations of federal campaign finance law.”
    4. Justice Democrats ran campaigns for Ocasio-Cortez and 11 other Democrats, but the New York Democrat was the only one to win her general election.

    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 little darling will never see the inside of a courtroom over this, just like Obama was not impeached. Need I point out the reason?

    They’re too locked in on impeaching Trump for them to turn on their own.

    When I see her blathering away about some childish nonsense I feel like I am listening to a child who needs to be corrected or disciplined.

    Democrats will certainly protect her, but The FEC is not part of .congress.

    I wish you were right but I don't think you are - the MSM is just another arm of the DNC and they are covering this nut AOC 24/7. And, true to form, it's been one crazy thing after another - let's embrace robots, back taxes outstanding, the New Deal is racist, and so on.

    She is a direct threat and an upstart to Pelosi and Schumer and she makes their party look insane by AOC taking the mask off of what many of them truly believe. AOC won her primary by taking out a big gun, it will be like Dr. Frankenstein having to kill his own creation.

    Maybe director of the FB* will hold a press conference and explain in detail all the crimes she committed, but then say no prosecutor would ever bring the case.... of yeh, that already happened.
