Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was hit with a lawsuit for allegedly funneling money into her boyfriend’s pocket while running for Congress. Newsweek reports:

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign may have illegally paid her boyfriend through a political action committee after she launched her congressional bid, a conservative activist group has alleged in a new complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission.

In its complaint, the Coolidge Reagan Foundation alleged that the Brand New Congress PAC paid Ocasio-Cortez’s boyfriend, Riley Roberts, as a “marketing consultant” after the PAC was hired by Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign. It alleged that Brand New Congress initially paid Roberts $3,000 on August 9, 2017.

“Less than three weeks later, on August 27, 2017, Cortez, Cortez’s campaign committee paid Brand New Congress LLC $6,191.32 for ‘strategic consulting,’” the foundation added.

The foundation alleged that in the following month, Brand New Congress paid Roberts another $3,000, again, calling him a “marketing consultant.”

There is enough evidence for the FEC to investigate this campaign finance violation, but will they?
