Ocasio-Cortez 'Could Be Facing Jail Time' If Control Over PAC Were Intentionally Hidden, Former FEC Commissioner Says

From a totally right wing source, but this merits some discussion (lots of wishful thinking which I hope comes to naught!)

If FEC finds that her campaign operated in affiliation with the PAC in raising $1.8+ million before June 2018 primary, it would open them up to “massive reporting violations,” former FEC Commissioner Brad Smith said. Ocasio-Cortez never disclosed to the FEC that she and her campaign chair controlled the PAC while supporting her primary campaign (backing 12 Democrats during 2018 midterms; only Ocasio-Cortez won. “If the facts as alleged are true, and a candidate had control over a PAC that was working to get that candidate elected, that candidate is potentially in trouble and may have engaged in multiple violations of federal campaign finance law, including receiving excessive contributions,” said former Republican FEC Commissioner von Spakovsky.

They're (all "Life" legislators, Dems and GOP) out to get her at all costs as she is a threat to them all. She is saying things they don't want the people to hear.

Very true, and if she is the least bit vulnerable on these particularly problems, look out!


I have the feeling this is a bit like Judge Napolitano's pronouncements about the brewing tempests in the teapot, as in "much ado about nothing."


However, this many former FEC Commissioners agreeing on this is quite alarming.


This is newly published, her response:



Rep. Ocasio-Cortez says her staff did not break federal campaign law - ENN 2019-03-05 Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is denying a report her staff broke a federal campaign law. Christopher Bedford of The Daily Caller tells us about the case ...

The link didn't produce an AOC video. It's not surprising "they" are going after her. Our politics are so nasty. I'm disgusted and have little to no hope that the PTB won't sabotage the people's will. Again. I can understand why some choose simple not to waste their time voting. The Bernie thing was so disheartening and depressing. My husband and I worked our butts off for his campaign...even going out of state to door knock.

What the FEC does is the key thing, no matter who says what.

Two Repubs agreeing is not much of a sample size.


This is yet another reason to ban all campaign contributions to parties and individuals on they grounds the funds are used to abridge the free speech of people who lack the money to bribe as much as others, and to limit their ability to petition their government.

There were several more. 900 characters in a Quick-link is also limiting. I say it again: what the FEC does, if anything, is what is important. stay tuned.

Don't she's a real threat. Foreign policy is red line imperial empre territory. Cross it and your in threatening territory. She's for clean air and water and apple pie and MMT.

Think what you wish. The key thing is what action the FEC will take, if any.

Regardless any political motive, I'm assuming she may be in legal jeopardy.


My point was I don't think she's a real threat for reasons that should be self-evident.
