Democratic Congresswoman and notable Trump enemy Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now going to be forced to defend herself against accusations of wrongdoing after formal complains were filed against her.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is facing an investigation by the FEC after watchdog groups complained that she violated campaign finance laws. Apparently, Ocasio-Cortez’s former chief of staff left her office about the same time he was accused of illegally funneling $1 million between shell companies and political action committee (PAC) accounts.
This is illegal and is basically a form of money laundering that helps campaigns avoid disclosure laws and hides the source of money from the public. This would be a significant and horrifying breach of the public trust.
Ocasio-Cortez is also accused of giving her boyfriend an official House email account, which is funded by taxpayers.
But Ocasio-Cortez is brushing off these complaints are nothing more than a political hit job and referred to it was “trolling”. Time will tell whether Ocasio-Cortez is telling the truth, or if she’s just another lying, corrupt member of Congress.
But one thing is certain: there’s a real FEC investigation into what looks like serious violations, and the day is coming where she will have to defend herself. If she committed a crime and violated federal campaign finance laws, this most certainly is not a case of legal trolling, as she put it.
