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

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez D-N.Y. listens to President Donald Trump's State of the Union address on Feb. 5 2019

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.

"Ocasio-Cortez was recruited to run by Justice Democrats in early 2017 and was trained at weekend "boot camps" in the fundamentals of electoral campaigning and progressive policy", the group stated in a November 6 release, boasting about her victory.

The complaint listed several examples of campaign services provided by the company, including door-knocking and canvassing operations, as well as running events for the benefit of certain candidates. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) to a child on Tuesday, and even belittled the freshman lawmaker as "adorable".

"In the first two weeks of February 2019, Ocasio- Cortez posted numerous videos of official House floor and committee proceedings on her political Twitter and Instagram accounts", the complaint reads.

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 goal of the payments.

"It appears "strategic consulting" was a mischaracterization of a wide range of activities that should have been reported individually".

Panelist Christian Tamte called Ocasio-Cortez "the candidate of the future".

In a statement, the two men described the move as part of a larger effort to make the Korean peninsula free from nuclear weapons. Both the launch pad and engine test stand were in about the same condition since last August, according to the 38 North report.

Panelist Michael Milisits said, "I know she's got the Democratic Party nervous". Chakrabari acted as Ocasio-Cortez's campaign chair and co-founded the Justice Democrats and Brand New Congress PACs, which sent the money to his respective LLCs.

He helped found both Brand New Congress PAC and Justice Democrats, with the goal of bringing new and progressive members like Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described Democratic socialist, to Congress.

This is the second complain filed against Ocasio-Cortez this week.

Furthermore, during the 2016 election cycle, the Brand New Congress PAC paid a total of $205,000 - more than 80 percent of what it took in during the same period - to an entity called "Brand New Campaign LLC", which had the same New York City address as Chakrabarti did at that time. Under the agency's rules, for instance, a political committee must provide memos listing all the vendors paid through a campaign credit card, but the agency has not required campaign vendors to detail their payments to other vendors in a similar fashion, he said.

Trump continued to say that Ocasio-Cortez's mother said in an interview that she moved from NY to Florida because the taxes are too high in the former.

The NLPC claims it was an attempt to avoid reporting campaign expenditures.
