Freshman Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has found herself in legal hot water again. This time, she’s been busted for allegedly running a “subsidy scheme” with her campaign manager, Saikat Chakrabarti.
Dan Backer, the conservative attorney behind the complaint revealed to Fox News that Ocasio-Cortez ran a “shadowy web” of political action committees that were used to illegally raise extra money.
The complaint also alleged that Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti created a company that offered “political consulting services” at steeply discounted prices in order to avoid federal expenditure requirements.
An official complaint was just filed with the Federal Election Commission. This is the second complaint filed in a month against the New York Congresswoman.
Backer named Ocasio-Cortez, Chakrabarti, and two PACs run by the pair in the scheme to “subsidize cheap assistance for Ocasio-Cortez and other candidates at rates far below market value.”
Ocasio-Cortez has declined to comment on the accusations. However, Backer is determined to get to the bottom of Ocasio-Cortez’s shady dealings.
