Remember Luke Thompson? He’s the guy we told you about last week whose account was locked by Twitter after he started asking questions about why Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s boyfriend has an official House email account.

The MSM blew Thompson off, as did AOC’s Chief of Staff, Saikat Chakr. But Thompson, not satisfied with the excuses offered up by AOC’s office, kept digging and found that a liberal Super PAC paid AOC’s boyfriend $6000 during the campaign at a time when the campaign was deeply in debt. Oh, and the payments are possibly illegal.

The rich guy in the above tweet is Saikat Chakrabarti:

Chakrabarti reportedly owns a consulting company called, Brand New Congress LLC, which runs parallel to the Brand New Congress Super PAC. The money trail here is that AOC paid the consulting company for services while the Super PAC paid her boyfriend, Riley Roberts:

Payment details here:

The timing of the payments is suspicious as well:

Roberts also has two addresses listed. Arizona for the money from the Super PAC, New York for the in-kind contributions on the FEC report:

The payments to Roberts came at a time when AOC’s campaign was deeply in debt:

So, when did Chakrabarti leave the Super PAC? Good question:

All of this could be illegal:

Even if it’s not illegal, it does raise ethical issues:

Over to you, firefighters!
