AOC Staffing Scandal Exposed

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez has been making waves, but this is the first time that she has been unmasked on the substance of her political practices rather than form or policy ideas. Luke Thompson, a GOP political consultant, has discovered that Ocasio is closely tied in with a millionaire turned progressive activist, and could be violating House ethics rules in regards to her boyfriend. Wilson explains it all here.

In summary, Ocasio Cortez received infrastructure help from a millionaire donor, Chakrabarti, who provided campaign services. However, she couldn’t afford his services and instead of the campaign taking a loan, she most likely paid out of pocket. However, Chakrabarti later hired Ocasio’s boyfriend, which could be seen as nepotistic, even he would be qualified. This could mean that Chakrabarti was paying her Ocasio’s partner while at the same time getting paid by her, in effect donating to her campaign. Not only that, but she later hired this person to be her chief of staff. For all her talk of fighting against nepotism and money in politics, Ocasio has been double-dealing.

In addition, Ocasio Cortez denied hiring her own boyfriend on her staff, despite him having a US government email address. Unless she married him within the last month, this would be highly irregular as boyfriends are not counted as spouses. Much evidence has surfaced proving that her boyfriend is indeed on staff, and paid. More on nepotism in this case.

There is an argument for Ocasio Cortez hiring those close to her to serve on her staff, but it would go against the tenets that she has explicitly defended. Politics corrupt all, and Americans should not be lulled into thinking that “new” politicians are somehow purer.
