Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has recently been under fire for a potential Federal Election Commission violation involving her top aide Saikat Chakrabarti.
According to the Daily Caller, this potential violation is so serious that a former member of the FEC has already called an investigation into Ocasio-Cortez for a violation of campaign finance laws.

According to the Washington Examiner, the National Legal and Policy Center filed a complaint last week as well, alleging that Chakrabarti funneled $1 million from a PAC into two private companies that were in his control.
In a Fox News op-ed, former FEC commissioner Hans von Spakovsky said, “As a former FEC commissioner who has studied the complaint against Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti, I have concluded that there is unquestionably more than enough evidence to justify the FEC opening a civil investigation,” and later added that, “There seems to be enough evidence here to justify opening a criminal investigation.”
Interesting how the woman who is preaching socialism and going up against the “greedy rich,” seems to be just as corrupt as everyone else who she is speaking out against.
URGENT 2020 POLL: Trump or Bernie?
Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
Ocasio-Cortez never disclosed to the FEC that she and Chakrabarti, who served as her campaign chair, controlled Justice Democrats while it was simultaneously supporting her primary campaign. If the FEC finds that her campaign and the political action committee were operating in affiliation, it could result in her campaign receiving excessive contributions, former FEC commissioner Brad Smith told TheDCNF.
“If someone gave Ocasio-Cortez a $2,700 contribution and then gave another contribution to either of the other two PACS that Ocasio-Cortez and/or Chakrabarti were running, her campaign violated federal law by receiving and keeping a contribution above the legal limit,” von Spakovsky explained.

According to Ocasio-Cortez, this is all a “right-wing conspiracy theory” however she has not produced any real evidence that proves she is not guilty of these crimes.
Von Spakovsky continued by saying that Chakrabarti’s use of two different LLC’s to control “campaign infrastructure and fundraising” for Ocasio-Cortez goes completely against the congresswoman’s calls for “more transparency.”
“Is the New York congresswoman – who claims to be an honest and upstanding crusader for good government and transparency – really a hypocrite who improperly hid her own campaign spending in a complex maze of fundraising groups?” von Spakovsky asked.
Von Spakovsky stated that he expects the FEC commissioners will vote in favor of opening an investigation into the congresswoman, “given all the evidence of possible violations of the law that has already been made public.”

“We don’t know what further investigation will find,” he said. “But it is clear an investigation is needed to determine if Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti broke the law.”
Isn’t it interesting that one of the most corrupt politicians in Washington D.C. is a socialist?
Ocasio-Cortez is great at talking about how “evil” and “corrupt” everyone else is, but the fact of the mater is that she is just as corrupt as everyone else she talks about.
She has also been slapped with three ethics violations in less than a month.
