a day ago
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) notified the Justice Democrats, a left-wing political action committee (PAC), that it was under investigation for a series of financial discrepancies.

The Justice Democrats is a PAC that was founded by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her current chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti. Both served as board members from the PAC’s conception until Ocasio-Cortez announced her congressional bid.  ...

The FEC issued a letter —which was originally obtained by the Washington Free Beacon —to the current board of the Justice Democrats demanding justification for several payments made to campaigns.

The letter notes that Justice Democrats issued payments to campaigns for the “retirement of debts” from the 2018 cycle, but the campaigns they paid did not list any debts on their own disclosures.

Ocasio-Cortez was listed as a governor of the group until recently. ...

Ocasio-Cortez and Saikat Chakrabarti, a co-founder of Justice Democrats who is now her chief of staff, were both listed as governors of the group until March, when they were quietly removed in filings to D.C.'s Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs.
At this time, the PAC was facing increased scrutiny over nearly $1 million worth of transfers to limited liability companies started by Chakrabarti, as detailed in a complaint filed to the FEC by the National Legal and Policy Center, which referred to the PAC as a "slush fund."
