After just two months on the job Democrat Congresswoman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a list of ethics complaints levied against her.
It’s no secret that AOC is no fan of Israel as well as America.
She’s also not a fan of Republicans or most dems! After all, “she’s in charge now!”
When confronted about her statements and actions she dodges the questions as The Daily Caller reported.
Two watchdog groups have filed ethics complaints against Ocasio-Cortez for misusing her resources as a congresswoman with the Office of Congressional Ethics, while another group filed a complaint with Federal Election Commission (FEC) alleging she and her chief of staff set up a million-dollar private slush fund. Ocasio-Cortez’s term officially began in January.
Ocasio-Cortez “improperly converted U.S. House resources to her non-official, personal use by obtaining an official ‘@mail.house.gov’ e-mail address for her boyfriend, despite the fact he was not employed by her congressional office,” the Coolidge-Reagan Foundation claimed in a complaint Thursday.
She also falsely designated her boyfriend, Riley Roberts, a “staff” member to help secure the address, the group noted. The Coolidge-Reagan Foundation’s website champions itself as a first amendment watchdog group that defends, protects and advances “liberty.”
News of the email address first appeared after political consultant Luke Thompson posted a screenshot of a House directory on Feb. 15 showing Roberts listed under “staff,” alongside the email address and the phone number for Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional office. The New York representative’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, dismissed Thompson’s insinuation that Robert is a paid staff member.
“He’s not paid. We have no volunteers in the office. He’s not doing any government work,” Chakrabarti noted in a tweet responding to Thompson. “He can see her calendar just like spouses/partners/family members in other congressional office. Check your damn facts before you report bullshit. Lazy journos need to learn to do their jobs.”
The second complaint was filed by The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) Thursday and alleges Ocasio-Cortez’s political Instagram account contains direct links to her House Instagram account and includes a link for political contributions, alongside posts of official video footage on the House floor. The group claims these actions violate House ethics rules.
House ethics rules prohibit lawmakers from using official resources for political purposes, the complaint notes. The rules also forbid a member from posting a link to her official social media site on a campaign social media site. She solicited donations on the page that used the video footage, according to FACT, a nonprofit group whose past president, Matthew Whitaker, served as President Donald Trump’s acting attorney general in 2018 and 2019.
The three complaints came within days of each other. National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC), a conservative government watchdog, accused Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti Tuesday of illegally funneling money between political action committees (PACs) and private companies that were both controlled by Chakrabarti.
The Federalist Papers has more:
We covered the stories as they happened but Ocasio-Cortez has still not officially responded to the complaints filed against her, starting with her boyfriends email.
New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is running scared and working to cover her tracks now that the walls are closing in on her.
It started when journalist Luke Thompson discovered that the 29-year-old’s boyfriend had a campaign email address.
Ocasio-Cortez insisted that he only had the campaign email address for the purpose of checking her calendar and was not on her staff.
But then it was discovered that her boyfriend did have a job working for her chief of staff during the campaign.
And on Monday it was discovered that that same chief of staff appears to have moved $1 million from a PAC he and Ocasio-Cortez run to his private companies.
Not to mention the fact that a campaign is not supposed to have any ties to the PACs that support them.
Both Ocasio-Cortez and her campaign manager Saikat Chakrabarti could be facing some significant prison time if they are guilty.
And now in an effort to cover her tracks apparently, she has gotten rid of the original email address that started the investigating.
“Fun fact: his email address no longer exists. Guess he doesn’t need calendar access anymore, eh @AOC?” Thompson wrote.
