AOC Chief of Staff Funneled Over $1 Million in PAC Money To Private Firms — Report
‘I’ve never seen a more ambitious operation to circumvent reporting requirements,’ says government watchdog group
Two political actions committees founded by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s Chief of Staff funneled over $1 million into his own private companies, according to reports.
The cash transfers came from the PACs Brand New Congress and Justice Democrats, which Saikat Chakrabarti founded, according to a complaint filed to the Federal Election Commission.
“It appears Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her associates ran an off-the-books operation to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars, thus violating the foundation of all campaign finance laws: transparency,” said Tom Anderson, director of the National Legal and Policy Center’s Government Integrity Project, a government watchdog group.
