Does anybody remember in 2016 when articles were flying all over the place that Bernie Sanders had embezzled money from his campaign and given it to his daughter? All the Bernie haters were all like "THIS PROVES IT HE'S CORRUPT!"

It turned out she'd worked with his campaign over three years and made $15,000 over that period of time. She would have made more money working for McDonalds.

Grassroots campaigns can't afford to have an office full of paid interns, so oftentimes candidates rely on family members or significant others to fill roles. I mean, this is saying he got all of $6000. Not exactly a big score, and they didn't really try to hide it. Donald Trump used his campaign money to pay off prostitutes, tried to hide it through multiple entities and methods, and has been using campaign money to pay rent for a large space in Trump plaza for the last year without any indication of it actually being used for anything campaign related.

And geez, "Occasional kotex?" you guys wonder why conservatives have a reputation for being woman-haters. You're, literally, just insulting her for being a woman. Grow the hell up.

Uh, no. Give the 'OMG YOU HATE WOMRN' BS a rest.
She could be a big hairy man holding the same opinions and would be ridiculed just as much if not worse.

Try reddit with that women hating insult thingy you might get some traction over there.

We know exactly why libtards consider republicans as women haters, it's because of people like you. Not surprising at all too.

Right, if she was a big hairy man she would still get tampon insults. No matter her sex, middle school name-calling is idiotic. My previous statement still stands, grow the hell up.

I thought the country was at the point that corruption didn't need to be hidden. We have an official saying politicians shouldn't be punished. People certainly don't care about corruption if it is on their team. Illegals whose crime is defended.

Welcome to America.

What's truly idiotic are people like you supporting and defending AOC's socialist ideas.
Socialism has done enough damage, enough human misery over the past 100+ years, don't you think ?

Best recent example: socialism CAUSED famine in Venezuela, despite it being oil-rich

Socialism: for those who want the government to be (abusive) mommy and daddy....

Yes.

YOU grow the hell up

Typical Socialist Grifter

Is this a surprise to anybody but her most staunch apologists/look-the-other-way artists?

Seems like Ocasio-Cortez is not only stupid...but corrupt, as well.

...

How many of those PAC dollars found their way back in AOC's pocket, via her BF?

...



Wait... Are we men still supposed to feed women money? I thought it was all about strong and independent women these days.

There is of course nothing better than multiple revenue streams, so I'm sure Ms Cortez is just as good as the next woman in having both her own money and at least half of her BF's money.

It's actually a masterful idea - All women should be their significant other's boss. That way, if they need 100 more pairs of shoes, they just give the finsub schlub a raise!

Lol, nice straw-man there. You just, literally, assigned a point of view to me that I never espoused and then insulted me for holding said point of view.

Not surprising, as the two often go hand-in-hand. Records indicate that large sums of money from campaign donations were being directed to her Boy Friend from her PAC, whom AOC has called a "Marketing Consultant".

How many of those PAC dollars found their way back in AOC's pocket, via her BF?

For comparison, imagine if Trump had called Melania his "Marketing Consultant" during the campaign...and directed huge sums of PAC money into her personal accounts.

Think the Left and MSM would ignore that?



“Like other candidates, AOC paid Brand New Congress LLC for strategic consulting, in her case totaling $18,880.14,” wrote Luke Thompson on Medium.

“Unlike in the other cases, Brand New Congress PAC turned around and paid her boyfriend as a ‘marketing consultant.'”

Thompson used publicly available Federal Election Commission documents to source his report.

“Indeed, while Brand New Congress PAC’s ten largest expenditures were paid to Brand New Congress LLC for ‘strategic consulting,’ a sum that totaled $261,165.20 over the course of the campaign, its eleventh and twelfth largest expenditures were paid to Riley Roberts,” the report said.

Roberts has been described by Ocasio-Cortez as her “partner.”

Well that didn't take long.
Seems she angered the wrong people.
Will this make her a one and done?


Lucky for her she has big cans.

You do realize that the Venezuelan famine is due to trade embargoes from USA and the EU, don't you?

There are times when I question my belief in humanity, and this thread is one of them..

Not because AOC's corruption comes to light, but because many here are condoning the same behaviour of their own favourite candidate...

To deny ignorance isn't to be partisan!

Your OP cites a discredited FAKE NEWS site and even then does not provide proof of corruption.

I will refrain from commenting on what constitutes "stupid".

says the person who literally assigned a point of view to others that they never espoused and then insulted them for having said point of view.

I laughed out loud at how ironic your statement was. Irony could come along and smack you in the face and it seems you wouldn't notice a thing.

Democrats are the real elitists - they want everyone else to be poor and tied up in knots complying with their regulations and social demands, not themselves...they act like kings and queens. It's amazing that their voters keep on falling for it.

I assigned ?

Nope.

You DID defend that socialist MORON that would lead America to a Venezuela outcome.

Be sure your brain is engaged before putting keyboard in gear....

No.
The collapse of the economy is ENTIRELY due to socialism, starting with the way they managed PdVSA, their golden goose,
into oblivion, to say nothing of the rest of the mess they made with the economy.

Venezuelan socialism screwed this up.
Not the Americans. Not the Europeans. Their own policies destroyed farming inside Venezuela.
You put a socialist dingbat bus driver in charge of the country - that is the result

You are speaking out of gross ignorance

Even in the face of yet another crystal clear failure of that ideology by and for morons, you keep cheering for it.
It has NEVER worked, anywhere at any time in history.

Keep fooling yourself.

But don't put a dingbat socialist ignorant barmaid like AOC in charge of the US !
