FEC Looking Into Ocasio-Cortez For Money Laundering!

The walls might finally be closing in on Ocasio-Cortez who seems to have already engaged in corrupt practices so early into her political career.

The Coolidge Reagan Foundation filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on Wednesday alleging that socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) may have illegally funneled money to her boyfriend through an allied PAC.

Fox News reports that the group alleges “in their complaint that when the Brand New Congress PAC (BNC) — a political arm of Brand New Congress LLC, a company that was hired by Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., to run and support her campaign — paid Roberts for marketing services, it potentially ran afoul of campaign finance law.”

The complaint highlighted a report from earlier in February by Luke Thompson, who “published an article entitled ‘The Congresswoman Loves the Swamp. Her Wealthy Chief of Staff Used a PAC to Pay Her Boyfriend,’ on Medium, which parses FEC records to reveal evidence Ocasio-Cortez funneled money from her official campaign account to her boyfriend, Riley Roberts.”

The complaint added: “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 total amount of its expenditures, and the romantic relationship between Ocasio-Cortez and Riley collectively establish reason to believe these transactions may have violated campaign finance law.”

The Coolidge Reagan Foundation noted in the complaint the following two campaign finance laws they believe are pertinent to the allegations:

52 U.S.C. § 30114(b)(1) provides campaign contributions “shall not be converted by any person to personal use.”

52 U.S.C. § 30104(b)(6) provides an authorized committee must report “the name and address of each person who has received any disbursement not disclosed” as an expenditure, if it totals more than $200 within an election cycle.

In reference to 52 U.S.C. § 30114(b)(1), the complaint stated:

Ocasio-Cortez converted official funds raised through contributions to her candidate committee to personal use by transferring a total of $6,191.32 from her campaign committee to Brand New Congress PAC in late August and September 2017, which contemporaneously had its affiliated LLC pay $6,000 to her boyfriend, Riley. On information and belief, the amount paid to Riley was either not provided as consideration for bona fide services or exceeded the fair market value of any legitimate servicesRiley provided. On information and belief, the true intent of the payment to Riley was to provide personal benefit to a boyfriend, rather than defray bona fide campaign expenses.

In reference to 52 U.S.C. § 30104(b)(6), the complaint stated:

In an attempt to mask the payment of official campaign funds to her boyfriend, Ocasio-Cortez instead laundered them through intermediaries Brand New Congress PAC and Brand New Congress LLC. Ocasio-Cortez incorrectly reported a payment of $6,191.32 to Brand New Congress LLC on August 27, 2017, for strategic consulting, rather than correctly characterizing the underlying payment of $6,000 to Robert Riley.

When the allegations first surfaced, Ocasio-Cortez responded on Twitter, writing: “The conspiracy machine is in full effect & it’s been disappointing to watch professionals get duped + amplify unvetted Medium posts as truth, treating journalism like it’s a high school Livejournal rumor mill or something. No, I don’t shadily pay my boyfriend. Come on & VET.”

  1. Well now, should they find anything, maybe she’ll come out of it somewhat more humble …… NAHHH, NOT AOC !

  2. Well I guess our loud mouthed, Hispanic Supremacist who faked her way through economic classes, probably on her knees and back, wasn’t as clever as she thought. Well you can always go back to sucking up to your professors cant you. you know blouse down mouth open its old news for you isn’t it AOC.

  3. Didn’t take long for this young, dumb-ass commie political whore to learn the trade: do as I say, not as I do; these commies are all about equality for their dumb-(m)ass followers, equally poor while she/it can party hearty with the sheeple’s money – the COMMUNIST way! Keep committing political suicide you leftist useful idiots!

  4. I can’t believe the horrible nasty remarks. Trump has so much damage to our country that none of the people following him seem to have any integrity. Filthy language and and rasicism misogyny and classicism all rolled up into UGLY AWFUL
    PEOPLE. WHAT HOLE DO THEY CRAWL OUT OF?

  5. Riley is not her boyfriend at least not how most people look at a relationship see a boyfriend. I mean she pays him that means he is her Gigolo. So not only is she doing ILLEGAL things with her Campaign funds she is sex trafficking from her Congressal office. She has him on her staff which is also sexual harassment or would be if she were a man and Conservative. She is racking up almost as many ethics violations as she has said STUPID things. And she is known for her IGNORANT spouting.

  6. PLEASE FIND SOME WAY T GET RID OF THE AMERICA HATING WOMAN. PUT HER IN JAIL. jUST GET RID OF HER SHE IS UP TO NO GOOD AND MOST PEOPLE WITH BRAIN CELL AT ALL KNOW THIS.

  7. Well she was a thief at her job & probably had many drunken nights where she woke up with many dix in that huge mouth.

  8. KOTEX cortez ALREADY thinks that she is ABOVE the Law and that these RULES do NOT apply to her!!! She needs to learn FAST that she is NOT LYING hillary and must face these charges in COURT!!!

  9. All of the comments above are pretty right-on. It’s not like anything will happen to her and from the demoncrat point of view; she is just being picked on.
    For the parties bringing these claims, really? Other than maybe talk about it on Fox News it’s not like you will do anything.

  10. My feeling as grandmother and great grandmother, AOC is a stupid woman that has her mouth is into motion before her brain is in gear, been exposed to people that spew that nonsense for years. I can guarantee she will be a one term bartender. Watch as she puts her foot in mouth for one more year, then goodbye to that screwball.

  11. WELL, THAT DIDN”T TAKE LONG !!!
    I GUES SHE WANTS TO BE LIKE PELOSI,30 YEARS OR SO IN CONGRESS AND SHE IS WORTH CLOSE TO 200MILLION DOLLARS,
    I DO BELIEVE A INVESTIGATION SHOULD BE CONDUCTED AS WELL AS A AUDIT OF HER TAXES
    AND LETS NOT FORGET THE REST OF THE DEMOCRATS THAT HAVE BECOME MULTY MILLIONARES
    WHILE”WORKING “IN GOVERMENT. STARTING WITH THE CLINTON FAMILI THATS INCLUDING
    THE UGLY DAUGHTER OF HER”S,, A SPECIAL COUNCILL IS IN ORDER…..

  12. Would someone please give this squirrel a bag of peanuts to occupy her time so she will shut up already?!?!?!?

    I would say the best part of AOC ran down her mothers leg but, I do believe she was HATCHED!

  13. This little village idiot is the laughing stock of America. She is stepping on some pretty powerful toes that are going to come back and bite her HARD.

    What a joke! Our Congress is officially a 3 ring circus!!

  14. ” “The conspiracy machine is in full effect & it’s been disappointing to watch professionals get duped + amplify unvetted Medium posts as truth, treating journalism like it’s a high school Livejournal rumor mill or something.
