Conservatives target Ocasio-Cortez's 'Green New Deal' in NY billboards

FEC Complaint Filed Against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for 'Extensive Off-the-Books' Campaign

The complaint was drafted by the Virginia-based National Legal and Policy Center. Asked if the complaint shows she was connected to "dark money" during the campaign, Ocasio-Cortez replied, "No, no". One of the thoughts among pundits was that the moment Bernie Sanders entered the race, the very popular Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would quickly endorse his candidacy. Sen. "Additionally, on Ocasio-Cortez's political Instagram page, she directly links to her official House Instagram account and includes a link for political contributions, alongside the posts of official video footage and her comments on official action". The group argues the committees skirted campaign-finance laws by paying the large sums for "strategic consulting" services to Chakrabarti's corporation without disclosing details on precisely how the money was spent and who ultimately benefited from the spending.

However, Ryan said the Federal Election Commission could balk at another aspect of the committees' reports: the broad category of "strategic consulting" that committees used to describe Brand New Congress LLC's work on their behalf.

Hume was surprised that Ocasio-Cortez's "novelty" hadn't worn off already and warned that she will "lead that party off a cliff".

"There is no violation", Ocasio-Cortez told Fox News on March 5.

Brand New Campaign LLC was registered as a private company in the state of DE in May 2016, and in Tennessee in February 2017.

"Justice Democrats were instrumental ... in pulling off the biggest upset in modern American politics by recruiting, training, and ultimately electing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York's 14th Congressional District", the group stated. The goal was "to essentially run the full campaigns" and act as a vendor.

"Their candidates are proven to be absolutely insane, AOC, right?" he said, referring to Ocasio-Cortez.

The aide, chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti, set up the Brand New Congress PAC as a way to collect contributions to boost new members of Congress.

Atop the email is a quote from AIPAC activist Stephen Fiske in which he predicted to the New York Times that Ocasio-Cortez, Omar and Tlaib "are three people who, in my opinion, will not be around in several years".

The NLPC claims it was an attempt to avoid reporting campaign expenditures.

Amid the allegations, a former FEC commissioner late Monday suggested in an interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation that Ocasio-Cortez and her team could separately be facing major fines and potentially even jail time if they were knowingly and willfully violating the law by hiding their control of the Justice Democrats political action committee (PAC).
