REPORT: AOC’s Officially Accused Of Money Laundering
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a major problem keeping her facts straight. After making a big hubbub about her boyfriend NOT being on staff journalists uncover that he was recently given email access?
Riley Roberts, AOC’s boyfriend, has an official government email address but Alexandria’s team loudly stated that Roberts is not being paid, nor is he a member of her staff.
After a week or so of the American people screaming foul, The Coolidge Reagan Foundation filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on Wednesday alleging that socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) may have illegally funneled money to her boyfriend through an allied PAC.
According to Fox News, it was first reported last week that the Brand New Congress PAC paid Roberts during the early days of the Ocasio-Cortez campaign. According to FEC records, the PAC made two payments to Roberts – one in August 2017 and one in September 2017 – both for $3,000.
The FEC complaint specifically cites the use of “intermediaries” to make the payments, “the vague and amorphous nature of the services Riley ostensibly provided,” the relatively small amount of money raised by the campaign at that stage and “the romantic relationship between Ocasio-Cortez and Riley” in asserting the transactions might violate campaign finance law.
The Coolidge Reagan Foundation — a 501(c)(3) — is requesting that the FEC look into the payments for potential violations on relevant campaign finance laws that state that campaign contribution “shall not be converted by any person to personal use” and that “an authorized committee must report the name and address of each person who has received any disbursement not disclosed.”
When the allegations first hit, Ocasio-Cortez responded on Twitter: “The conspiracy machine is in full effect & it’s been disappointing to watch professionals get duped + amplify unvetted Medium posts as truth, treating journalism like it’s a high school Livejournal rumor mill or something. No, I don’t shadily pay my boyfriend. Come on & VET.”
Lets see how she tried to talk her way out of it now that it’s been made official.
