AOC Booted From Board Over Payment Scandal

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is embroiled in multiple scandals. She is making news for all the wrong reasons.

She was caught up in a scandal involving her boyfriend and then a swampy super PAC. Look, this is what is so hard for the glass house democrats – they complain about the system and the swamp and super PAC’s but they, like all politicians, use them liberally.

They complain about how the game is played and trash their opponents while doing the same thing behind closed doors – that is why we rejected Hillary Clinton and if the left keeps doing it it will doom them forever.

From Fox News: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., reportedly has been de-listed from the board of left-wing activist group Justice Democrats, following legal and ethical questions about her affiliation with the group.

The Daily Caller reported that Ocasio-Cortez, along with chief of staff and former campaign chair Saikat Chakrabarti, have been removed from the board of the political action committee after previously holding "legal control over the entity" in late 2017 and early 2018.

The Daily Caller had reported earlier this month on Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti’s role with the PAC, noting that the congresswoman never disclosed to the Federal Election Commission that they "controlled the PAC while it was simultaneously supporting her primary campaign." Former FEC officials said at the time this could represent violations of campaign finance law.

It was Justice Democrats that helped catapult Ocasio-Cortez from obscurity to an upset primary win over then-Rep. Joe Crowley to an election win in November. The group runs a recruitment program by which activists can nominate grassroots candidates for office to challenge incumbent Democrats, and Ocasio-Cortez gave her support to that push in a video in January. The group has also backed her on issues such as "Medicare-for-all" and the Green New Deal.

The Caller reports that Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti took control of Justice Democrats in December 2017, until Ocasio-Cortez was removed from the board in June 2018 — though she was kept on as an "entity governor" until last week. Both Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti were only officially removed from the board on March 15, according to documents obtained by the outlet, almost eight months after attorneys had said she was removed.

The development is the latest in the controversy surrounding the left-wing firebrand’s campaign. Earlier this month, Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti were accused in an FEC complaint of violating campaign finance law by funneling nearly $1 million in contributions from PACs, including Justice Democrats, to private companies also controlled by Chakrabarti.

Although large financial transfers from PACs to private LLCs are not necessarily improper, the complaint argues that the goal of the "extensive" scheme was seemingly to dodge detailed reporting requirements of the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971, which are designed to track campaign expenditures.

You genetically deficient Trump followers seem proud to be associated with a three-time married, serial adulterer and confessed predator; a man whose election and business dealings and relationships are riddled with controversy and malfeasance. You’re perfectly fine supporting for this bullying, obnoxious, genitalia-grabbing, Tweet-ranting, Prime Minister-shoving charlatan who’s managed to offend all our allies in a few short months. And you’re okay with him putting on religious faith like a rented, dusty, ill-fitting tuxedo and immediately tossing it in the garbage when he’s finished with it. If so, you are just another one of Trump's followers who are nothing but a motley crew of has-beens, racists, misogynists, neo-fascists, theocrats, pedophiles and idiots.

Of course, you would rather have Hilary Clinton as your president. This Hillary:
Hillary Clinton shared state secrets through her UNSECURED private email server.
Hillary Clinton uses the Clinton Foundation to launder money for herself.
People could “buy” appointments with Secretary Clinton by donating to the Clinton Foundation.
Hillary Clinton approved a Russian uranium deal because of Clinton Foundation donations.
Hillary Clinton is responsible for the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi.
Hillary Clinton was a Republican while in college.
Hillary Clinton defended a rapist and laughed about it.

Hillary Clinton may be a murderer and a lesbian as well has affairs with men - bisexual.

Chelsea Clinton is not Bill Clinton’s daughter, but the product of Hillary’s sexual relationship with Webb Hubbell, her old partner at the Rose Law Firm.

Vincent Foster was Hillary’s soulmate and she may have killed him.

The Clintons did hire detectives to kill Kathleen Willey’s cat and leave its skull on her porch to intimidate her into silence after Bill, a cocaine fiend who trafficked the stuff into the Mena Airport in Arkansas by the ton, sexually assaulted her.

Bill Clinton relied on cocaine for energy to globe-trot with pedophiles (Jeffrey Epstein - Loita Express)) and impregnate prostitutes in alleyways during his morning jogs.

Bill Clinton's association with Jeffrey Epstein, the billionaire pedophile, and Bill went on “eighteen” trips on Epstein’s private plane, which is “known as the ‘Lolita Express."

Trump criticized Hillary Clinton for being a “nasty, mean enabler” of her husband’s affairs.

Morrow: “Donald Trump didn’t murder 76 innocents at Waco in 1993, and Hillary did.”

Stone and Morrow harp on what they say is Bill’s relentless coke habit, dazzling with tales of him snorting lines as the Arkansas attorney general and then in the governor’s mansion.

In Blood Feud, Klein wrote that Hillary said, verbatim, in a private conversation, “Now we are going to be together on the campaign trail, and it’s going to be complicated. Plus, there is the dynamic that when I run for president I’m going to be the boss, and I’m not sure Bill will be able to handle that. He says he’ll be my adviser and loving husband, but I’m afraid that if I’m elected, he’ll think he’s president again and I’m first lady. If he starts that shit, I’ll have his ass thrown out of the White House.”

And then, there is the "CLINTON BODY COUNT":
