A conservative group alleges Ocasio-Cortez and her allies ran a PAC scam. But there's no evidence of wrongdoing.
While the structure of her campaign and its vendors might be confusing, it's not illegal, campaign finance experts said.
By Jane C. Timm

"The National Legal and Policy Center filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission on Tuesday, alleging that the New York Democrat and her allies used a corporation to skirt campaign finance reporting laws. The complaint comes after a number of conservative-leaning outlets said Ocasio-Cortez broke campaign finance laws when she hired her boyfriend for marketing work."
"David Mitrani, an attorney representing Ocasio-Cortez's campaign and the related organizations named in the FEC complaint, pushed back strongly on the reports in a statement Wednesday, saying that the entities "have at all times been conducted fully in compliance with federal campaign finance laws."
"Campaign finance experts, meanwhile, told NBC News that while the structure of her campaign and its vendors might be confusing, there's no evidence of some kind of million-dollar scam as has been alleged in news reports."
"There's no evidence of self-dealing or any kind of elaborate scam, two experts told NBC News, which is often the major concern with LLCs and PACs run by the same people."

There they go again with their game of Conservatives vs. Liberals. Going on the attack without the proof of actual wrongdoing beforehand. It's conservative partisan politics at play here and nothing more. Republicans see Ocasio-Cortez as a threat to them because of her savvy on things and smartness therefore, they want to find ways to make her look bad. But it is they who end up looking bad absent any real evidence implicating her of any wrongdoing.

Well, if there is any evidence of wrongdoing, then there will soon be an indictment.

I wouldn't recommend holding your breath waiting for that to happen though. ;)

There's no evidence because Fake News NBC says so?

You gonna hang your hat on that one?

Uhm-Hmm .....

I'm hanging my hat on the investigators and the prosecutors. That's what they do. They're professionals.

If she's guilty, or even appears reasonably guilty, she will be indicted.

Let's see what happens.
