FEC Complaint Claims Ocasio-Cortez Might Have Violated Campaign Finance Laws

According to an explosive complaint filed Monday with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) and obtained by Fox News, Saikat Chakrabarti, the chief of staff of New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, might have violated campaign finance law by funneling nearly $1 million in contributions from political action committees Chakrabarti established to private companies.

The FEC complaint asserts that Chakrabarti established two PACs, the Brand New Congress PAC and Justice Democrats PAC, and then systematically transfered more than $885,000 in contributions received by those PACs to the Brand New Campaign LLC and the Brand New Congress LLC — companies that, unlike PACs, are exempt from reporting all of their significant expenditures. The PACs claimed the payments were for “strategic consulting.”
