Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her senior staffer were hit with another complaint by the Federal Election Commission this week; this time for allegedly operating a “subsidy scheme” that violated campaign finance laws.
“The crux of the complaint, which was given exclusively to Fox News in advance of its filing Wednesday, accused Ocasio-Cortez and her campaign manager, Saikat Chakrabarti, of overseeing a ‘shadowy web’ of political action committees (PACs) that allowed them to raise more cash than they could have legally,” reports Fox News.
“It also alleged that a limited liability company (LLC) was created to avoid federal expenditure requirements by offering Ocasio-Cortez and other Democratic candidates political consulting services at a price so low that the company apparently shut down before the election was even over,” adds the report.
The complaint is similar to another filing submitted weeks ago that accused Ocasio-Cortez’ Chief of Staff of “funneling” campaign funds to private organizations that could conceal their origins.
