.@AOC slapped with campaign finance complaint
FEC guidelines say political campaigns must pay fair market value for services or include them as in-kind contributions.
A group the AOC campaign did business with allegedly did not follow those rules. https://t.co/UM42NuvZ5e

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 âshadowy webâ of political action committees (PACs) that allowed them to raise more cash than they could have legally. 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.
The complaint named Ocasio-Cortez, Chakrabarti (now her chief of staff), the Justice Democrats PAC, the Brand New Congress PAC and Brand New Congress LLC as the overlapping entities that aimed to âsubsidize cheap assistance for Ocasio-Cortez and other candidates at rates far below market value.â
Waiting for AOC statement on FEC rules being imposed by racist misogynistic old white men to protect capitalism & hurt minorities/women.

Wait for it âŚ sheâs already blamed conservatives:
Ocasio-Cortez dismissed the complaint when approached for comment by Fox News Wednesday afternoon, saying: âI mean, itâs conservative interest groups just filing bogus proposalsâ before walking into a House Financial Services Committee meeting.
Hey, anything to deflect.
So, will anything come of this latest complaint?
Oh good, they should get to this in about the middle of her third term.
Go with House ethics and a criminal complaint, folks. https://t.co/e7URd2Yjvk

AOCâs got a (D) by her name, which carries a lot of weight, but wouldnât it be something if she had to answer for her actions for a change?
