FEC Continues to Ignore Dems Campaign Finance Violations

The Federal Election Commission continues to ignore the campaign violations of Democrats, including violations by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Despite not being held accountable the Dems continue to push for campaign finance reform.

According to The Western Journal:

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — the radical New York socialist and media darling — is the latest poster child for illicit activity and sheer hypocrisy. First, she illegally funneled thousands of dollars in official campaign funds through “Brand New Congress PAC” and “Brand New Congress LLC” to her boyfriend, Riley Roberts. Then, Ocasio-Cortez improperly converted House resources to her non-official, personal use by obtaining an official email address for Roberts.

Most recently, Ocasio-Cortez and her campaign manager, Saikat Chakrabarti, were implicated in a “subsidy scheme” that ran afoul of multiple campaign finance laws. Through the Justice Democrats PAC, Brand New Congress PAC, and Brand New Congress LLC, Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti aimed to “subsidize cheap assistance for Ocasio-Cortez and other candidates at rates far below market value.”

Ocasio-Cortez, of course, is not alone. In 2016, Hillary Clinton presided over an $84 million money laundering scheme that involved the Democratic National Committee, dozens of state Democratic parties, and hundreds of liberal mega-donors — all of whom conspired to funnel excessive six-figure donations to Clinton’s campaign.

Yet the Federal Election Commission refuses to hold Clinton and Ocasio-Cortez accountable for their actions. The agency with the responsibility to ensure that Washington elites play by the rules seems to be suggesting the rules don’t apply to them. In fact, this month marks the one-year anniversary of a lawsuit filed against the FEC, accusing the agency of shirking its duty to the American people.

It looks like certain people get treated differently by the Federal Election Commission and they should have to answer to why that is.
