  • Dem voter praises AOC 'She's a badass'

PACs are required to report names and addresses of all people who paid more than $200 to "meet a candidate or committee operating expense" as well as the objective of the payments.

"There is no violation", Ocasio-Cortez told Fox News on March 5. "In all my years of studying FEC reports, I've never seen a more ambitious operation to circumvent reporting requirements". Even more tellingly, while Brand New Campaign LLC is registered in DE, there are no Secretary of State records for Brand New Congress LLC, and the time or location of its incorporation remain unknown. If the corporation undertook polling, fundraising and other campaign activities on behalf of candidates and committees, commissioners could conclude that they did not accurately describe those activities in their filings, he said.

In an email to supporters who contributed to her shock midterm victory over veteran Rep. Joseph Crowley, D-N.Y., team AOC repeated a quote American Israel Public Affairs Committee activist Stephen Fiske gave to The New York Times predicting the future losses for Ocasio-Cortez, and Reps.

"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. "The ONLY way to do work for multiple candidates legally at this scale is to create an LLC and act as a vendor", the group said.

The NLPC alleges that Ocasio-Cortez and the others named in the complaint diverted almost a million dollars in campaign donations to the coffers of a for-profit entity operated by Chakrabarti.

He linked to a video clip in which he explained the idea behind this "new set-up" of a "unified" national campaign to elect congressional progressives to MSNBC's Rachel Maddow.

"We were transparent about it from the start", he said Tuesday on Twitter.

Former Federal Election Commission lawyer Adav Noti said such an arrangement does mirror a practice used by "scam PACs" and raises a "warning flag", but he said there's no evidence to support a kickback allegation in this case.

The final disposition of the funds is unknown because whatever expenditures were made were never reported to the FEC. From her constitutents" point of view, as a House member who has nailed her colours to the "clean campaign finance' mast, it is particularly important to determine whether she was in fact an accomplice to potential violations of campaign finance laws, given her close relationship with Charkrabarti.
