Ocasio-Cortez Riles Up Twitter With 'Racist Tropes' Talk Amid Omar Controversy

The watchdog says that Ocasio-Cortez committed a number of violations.

Federal rules require candidates and committees to disclose in filings with the Federal Election Commission how they spend donors' money. This raises the obvious question of what "strategic consulting" work these companies did to earn over $1 million in fees within that time period despite having no recognized activity or personnel apart from Charkrabarti.

The complaint, filed by the watchdog National Legal and Policy Center, charges the arrangement violated reporting requirements and possibly the $5,000 limit on contributions from federal PACs to candidates.

The aide, chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti, set up the Brand New Congress PAC as a way to collect contributions to boost new members of Congress.

David Mitrani, an attorney for the Ocasio-Cortez's campaign, the two PACs, and the company told ABC News in a statement that all of the entities have "fully complied with the law and the highest ethical standards".

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez arrives for a House Committee on Oversight and Reform hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., February 27, 2019.

Per the NLPC complaint, Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti were wrongly unlisted as controlling the PACs which were reportedly funneling money back into their campaign coffers.

When you can not win you can not give a chance for our opponent to win and a clean sheet is important for us". "Subconsciously, you don't try to think about it but it's in your head", said the former England midfielder.

The political operation that Chakrabarti helped establish centered on a novel approach: using a new crop of political action committees to help recruit and train hundreds of progressives to run for Congress and make it easier for little-known candidates to mount campaigns.

"Justice Democrats were instrumental ... in pulling off the biggest upset in modern American politics by recruiting, training, and ultimately electing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York's 14th Congressional District", the group stated.

The group has called the "Green New Deal" an unrealistic and potentially ruinous plan for the US economy that would require massive government spending.

"We're looking for people who are good at what they do", he told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow in a 2016 interview. "We should actively check antisemitism, anti-blackness, homophobia, racism, and all other forms of bigotry", it said.

Even so, Adav Noti, senior director of trial litigation at the nonpartisan Campaign Legal Center, said the committees could be exposed to potential violations over how they reported the spending to the Federal Election Commission.

The final disposition of the funds is unknown because whatever expenditures were made were never reported to the FEC.

"It sounds to a lot of people like that's a way to skirt the campaign finance laws in this country", former Utah GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz said on Fox News' "America's Newsroom".
