Default PAC aligned with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez paid boyfriend $6G for marketing work

I wonder how many libs will take issue with this. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say...ZERO.

Dude may as well get special perks. He already has his own government email account.

PAC aligned with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez paid boyfriend $6G for marketing work

Quote:
A political action committee (PAC) aligned with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez paid her boyfriend $6,000 during the infancy of her campaign.

The Brand New Congress PAC (BNC), a political arm of Brand New Congress LLC, a company that was hired by Ocasio-Cortez to run and support her campaign, paid Riley Roberts for marketing services he provided to the PAC.


According to FEC records, the PAC made two payments to Roberts – one in August 2017 and one in September 2017 – both for $3,000.

Seems like nothing about nothing to me. Somebody did some work. Got paid. In the beginning of her campaign. A lot of highly placed congressmen made themselves and their family millionaires by funneling contracts to hubby and sonny.

I'm far more concerned with his access to the government internet portal.

Agreed...

Was he even her boyfriend at the time? Maybe they met through his job at the campaign...BNC has already stated that he has worked on multiple campaigns before...

...and even if he was her boyfriend at the time, this was over a full year BEFORE she got elected....when she was considered a "private citizen", so big whoop...


Now if you REALLY want to see unethical behavior (that the Federal Elections Committee allows ), look at this...

Maxine Waters' campaign committee will pay daughter $100,000, FEC filings show

Quote:
Rep. Maxine Waters' campaign committee has paid the California Democrat's daughter nearly $50,000 this election cycle, with an additional $65,000 forthcoming, campaign finance documents show.

Disclosures with the Federal Election Commission show Karen Waters received $42,862 from Citizens for Waters through a series of nine payments made between May 2017 and January 2018. The most recent payment, of $5,000, was made Jan. 19, according to FEC filings.

The payments to the younger Waters were described as a “slate mailer management fee.”

Additional filings with the FEC show Citizens for Waters will pay Karen an additional $65,000 this election cycle for “professional services” related to the mailer.

According to California’s Fair Political Practices Commission, a slate mailer is a mass mailing in support of or opposed to candidates or ballot initiatives.

Maxine Waters is the worst of the worse, she's advocating violence against Trump supporters, Karma will end up getting that woman unless she changes her ways.

If we want to address those that score big then we have to look at Trump's former body guard that's being paid $15,000/mo by the RNC for basically doing nothing right now.

Quote:
"Trump's bodyguard's firm is getting a fat payout from the RNC and its deep-pocketed donors," said Spaulding, who noted that individual contributors "can give a whopping $101,700 per year to the RNC's convention account."

Already, [Keith] Schiller's $15,000 monthly "site selection consulting fee" is more than he made working in the White House, where his annual salary was $165,000. It's also more than Schiller made working for the Trump campaign, which reported paying KS Global Group $10,000 a month starting in July of 2016.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

Maxine Waters called upon people to confront members of the Trump administration in public. She never advocated the commission of violent acts against them.

"Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere," she said.


She gets very close.
