On Wednesday, The Coolidge Reagan Foundation —a First Amendment watchdog— filed another complaint against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), this time targeting Ocasio-Cortez and her campaign manager, Saikat Chakrabarti.
Spanning nearly 50 pages and levying more than 20 counts against Ocasio-Cortez, Chakrabarti, and the entities they created to carry out an unlawful, “dark money” scheme, the complaint provides the most in-depth analysis of Ocasio-Cortez’s various campaign finance violations to date.
This follows a complaint filed with the Federal Election Committee (FEC) in March, where the two PACs founded by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s top aide, Saikat Chakrabarti funneled over $1 million in political donations into two of his own private companies, reported the Washington Examiner.
Today The Coolidge Reagan Foundation filed more charges.
In the complaint’s words:
“[Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti] engaged in a brazen scheme involving multiple political and commercial entities under their control to violate federal election law, circumvent federal contribution limits and reporting requirements, and execute an unlawful subsidy scheme. This scheme allowed Ocasio-Cortez to gain an unfair advantage by receiving illegally excessive contributions and illegally subsidized campaign services.”

Later today Rep. Ocasio-Cortez responded to the latest FEC complaints filed against her and her campaign chairman.
The bartender says they’re “bogus.”
