Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's spokesperson collected nearly $20,000 in overlapping salary payments from the New York Democrat's campaign committee and the Justice Democrats political action committee over a two-month span last year, filings to the Federal Election Commission show.

Corbin Trent, Ocasio-Cortez's communications director in her Washington, D.C. office, was a leader of the Justice Democrats, the far-left group behind the freshman Democrat's sharp political rise and surprise upset victory over seasoned Democratic representative Joseph Crowley.

As Trent was acting as a spokesperson for Ocasio-Cortez's campaign last year, he was receiving a salary from the Justice Democrats PAC. Between September 9, 2017 and October 15, 2018, $73,000 in salary disbursements were paid to Trent from the group's PAC.
