(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) Already under investigation for multiple ethic complaints, far-leftist Squad Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., was accused this week of concealing thousands of dollars in campaign funds.
A complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission, which was obtained by the Daily Caller, cited “more than $9,600 in reported campaign credit card expenditures that lacked information on the purpose of the charges.”
The latest complaint facing AOC, which was filed by Dan Backer on behalf of the Coolidge Reagan Foundation, slams the congresswoman for “repeated, blatant violations of federal campaign finance law to conceal how she spent thousands of dollars of campaign funds.”
Ocasio-Cortez’s front group, AOC for Congress, “reported tens of thousands of dollars of disbursements for card payments and card payment reimbursements to Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez herself; American Express; and an entity called ‘Veyond!,’ which appears to have provided virtual reality services and apparently no longer operates under that name,” the complaint stated.
“In each case, the reports do not fully disclose the purposes of each payment for which the charge card was used; the sum of the specific Memo Item entries is consistently hundreds or even thousands of dollars less than the total amount paid to the recipient,” the complaint alleged.
“Although campaigns are permitted to use charge cards (or reimburse candidates for use of their personal charge cards) for otherwise permissible campaign-related expense, their disclosure reports must accurately identify both the recipient of those funds, as well as each of the campaign-related goods and services those charge cards were used to purchase.”
AOC’s suspect financial dealings extended beyond her own campaign, flowing to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus where she sits on the advisory council. After the group had received a $150,000 donation from ByteDance, the CCP-linked parent company of TikTok, AOC came under fire for abruptly throwing her support behind the company.
When AOC wasn’t dodging still another ethics complaint, this one for allegedly defaming Libs of TikTok creator Chaya Raichik, she was being hammered by the Office of Congressional Ethics for still yet another complaint.
Relating to her infamously obnoxious virtue signaling with a custom-designed “Tax the Rich” dress, the OCE determined that there was “substantial reason to believe” AOC “accepted impermissible gifts associated with her attendance at the Met Gala in 2021″ that violated “standards of conduct and federal law.”
According to OCE, members of congress are not able to receive gifts of such value from companies, like Vogue, that hire lobbyists. Ocasio-Cortez’s two Met Gala tickets alone cost $75,000, paired with the cost of a custom gown, jewelry, shoes, professionally-styled hair and gown, the value is easily over six figures.
