OhOh looks like Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has some corruption looming !!

Now we learn of a plot to funnel money !!

Apparently her top aide (Chief of Staff Saikat Chakrabarti Or is it chewybaka?) set up 2 PACs and it appears some cash was funneled to his own private companies !!

Well she's in office for 2 Months and the whammy is swinging already roflol 😆

The FEC will be "looking" in to this outrage 😆


AOC' s chief of staff ran $1M slush fund by diverting campaign cash to his own companies

Two political action committees founded by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s top aide funneled over $1 million in political donations into two of his own private companies, according to a complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission on Monday.

The cash transfers from the PACs — overseen by Saikat Chakrabarti, the freshman socialist Democrat's chief of staff — run counter to her pledges to increase transparency and reduce the influence of "dark money" in politics.

Chakrabarti's companies appear to have been set up for the sole purpose of obscuring how the political donations were used.


"Who ME ?"


"Yeah YOU !!"

Being that she is the Marxist Barbie of the New Democratic party, I'm surprised that it even made the news.

Or is it that you can't get into REAL full-scale crime until you've done your political time?

Be interesting to see how this pans out.

S&F, as always...

She was probably getting half the money or maybe even more than half, but will throw him under the bus now that he got caught. I hope he turns her in if she is involved, although, she is a Democrat, she has nothing to worry about because only Republicans get investigated.

Oh OUCH!

I'd missed her little tirade against corruption.

Sounds like she failed to align her Chakrabartis.

These new Congress women won't be giving each other a high-five at the next State of the Union Address. They probably won't even be there.

Not really surprising from the AOC camp.

'Every Billionaire is a failure'.

Apparently because they haven't stolen anything from them yet.

Oh yeah, that makes sense. From observing her actions I would probably say she wasn't capable of doing anything that took that much reasoning.

She's pissing off plenty of people within the Dem party, but let's not forget her Jeff Bezos beef. She played a very vocal role in spoiling Amazon's plan for an NYC headquarters. WaPo had some jabs at her after that.

This is why people speculate she's a useful idiot. The division in her party is only beginning and she doesn't seem to care.
