Suspicious Payments to AOC's Boyfriend Revealed
Now, the tenacious investigator is back with damning information regarding the democratic socialist – who many consider a threat to the established order. If proven true, it says far more about Ocasio-Cortez embracing the swamp than fighting it. (Bizpac Review)

Taking to Twitter, Thompson lays out a case where Ocasio-Cortez’s boyfriend was paid $6,000 by a PAC owned by Saikat Chakrabarti, now her chief of staff, at a time “when her campaign was running out of money.”
The PAC is affiliated with Justice Democrats, a collaboration between Chakrabarti and Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks, Thompson noted.
Last week, @AOC and her Chief of Staff @saikatc (the rich guy in question) freaked out on me when I pointed out it looked like she'd hired her boyfriend. I did some digging in the FEC. Turns out Saikat has "hired" her boyfriend, before...just not to do any actual work.— Luke Thompson (@ltthompso) February 20, 2019
According to Thompson, money flowed both ways, from Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign to Brand New Congress LLC, which ran parallel to the PAC, and back to the boyfriend as a “marketing consultant.”
Thompson noted that Roberts “doesn’t work in marketing.”
Thompson also highlighted the suspicious timing of the transactions.
Plus, the timing looks bad.— Luke Thompson (@ltthompso) February 20, 2019
