Democrat Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, appears to have secured over $1 million for his private company through a slush fund.
He used political contributions for AOC’s campaign.
That’s a big no-no.
From Washington Examiner:
Two political action committees founded by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s top aide funneled over $1 million in political donations into two of his own private companies, according to a complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission on Monday.
The cash transfers from the PACs — overseen by Saikat Chakrabarti, the freshman socialist Democrat’s chief of staff — run counter to her pledges to increase transparency and reduce the influence of “dark money” in politics.
Chakrabarti’s companies appear to have been set up for the sole purpose of obscuring how the political donations were used.
Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff is a supporter of a man who was an “ally of Adolf Hitler.”
Imagine if AOC was a Republican. She’d be forced to not only answer for her top aide, but she would face calls to step down herself.
Check it out, per Liberty Nation:
Based on a recent clothing choice, Chakrabarti might justifiably be considered a Nazi sympathizer. But really? Well, yes. In his latest love-fest video for AOC, Chakrabarti is sporting a tee-shirt that features a portrait of Subhas Chandra Bose. Not familiar with this former Indian head of state? Here a few facts:
-Bose was an ally of Adolf Hitler and met with him personally in 1942.
-Bose founded the Free India Legion (FIL) made up of troops captured by Nazi Field Marshal Rommel’s Afrika Korps.
-The FIL swore an oath to Hitler and was under SS command.
-Bose teamed up with the Japanese in 1943.
-Bose was an admirer of the USSR and sought to implement its authoritarian practices in India.

AOC has a question about election day and Columbus Day she can’t seem to figure out on her own.
Not only is it ridiculous, but conservatives took notice.
See her tweet:
How is Columbus Day a holiday but Election Day not?

Why do you need Election Day to be a holiday?
— EC (@EdnaV4) November 18, 2018
10 days on the job and you are already looking to manufacture more days off.

Ocasio-Cortez said that she couldn’t afford to land an apartment in DC until her Congressional paycheck kicked in.
“I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real.”
She apparently lied.
From Daily Wire:
As Fox News reports, “Records show she has more than enough to plunk down on an apartment in the U.S. capital.” Fox News adds that Ocasio-Cortez “reported having between $15,001 and $50,000 in her checking account as of the end of April 2018, according to a Financial Disclosure Report she submitted to the clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives. The financial disclosure also reveals that she has an investment account valued between $1,001 and $15,000.”
