Federal Election Commission says ‘AOC Could be Facing JAIL TIME if PAC intentionally hidden’
Well just when you thought the butt of all the jokes in the room had finally farted enough, (man that was a good opening), the FEC commissioner, ALSO KNOWN AS ‘THE REAL BOSS’ drops some mad wisdom on the young socialist communist Evita Peron that if she had intentionally hidden her PAC, she could be facing jail time.
Could be you say? Let us not forget these are the people who were willing enough to throw Michael Cohen in prison, a loss that Republicans could care less if they take. Cohen was a greedy opportunist as proven in the recent hearings. He betrayed the President like Judas betrayed Jesus for 30 pieces of silver. “Could be?”
Lock her up. She’s done enough damage to the human condition in America and we’d hate to see her do more. It’s time to put functioning adults back in Congress.
“Two political action committees founded by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s top aide funneled over $1 million in political donations into two of his own private companies, according to a complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission on Monday.
The cash transfers from the PACs — overseen by Saikat Chakrabarti, the freshman socialist Democrat’s chief of staff — run counter to her pledges to increase transparency and reduce the influence of “dark money” in politics.
Chakrabarti’s companies appear to have been set up for the sole purpose of obscuring how the political donations were used.”
Daily Caller reported that “Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti obtained majority control of Justice Democrats PAC in December 2017, according to archived copies of the group’s website, and the two appear to retain their control of the group, according to corporate filings obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. If the Federal Election Commission (FEC) finds that the New York Democrat’s campaign operated in affiliation with the PAC, which had raised more than $1.8 million before her June 2018 primary, it would open them up to “massive reporting violations, probably at least some illegal contribution violations exceeding the lawful limits,” former FEC commissioner Brad Smith said.
Ocasio-Cortez never disclosed to the FEC that she and Chakrabarti, who served as her campaign chair, controlled the PAC while it was simultaneously supporting her primary campaign, and former FEC commissioners say the arrangement could lead to multiple campaign finance violations. The group backed 12 Democrats during the 2018 midterms, but Ocasio-Cortez was the only one of those to win her general election.
“If the facts as alleged are true, and a candidate had control over a PAC that was working to get that candidate elected, then that candidate is potentially in very big trouble and may have engaged in multiple violations of federal campaign finance law, including receiving excessive contributions,” former Republican FEC commissioner Hans von Spakovsky told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
And fellow former FEC commissioner Brad Smith told TheDCNF that if “a complaint were filed, I would think it would trigger a serious investigation.” He also noted that such a probe could potentially result in jail time for Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff, Chakrabarti.”
