Ocasio-Cortez’s “I’m 100% people funded me” comment questioned


Progressive Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is at the center of a Federal Elections Commission (FEC) investigation into whether she and her campaign manager, Saikat Chakrabarti, violated election laws by allegedly funneling $1 million in donations to private companies from political action committees.

These PAC’s and private companies in question are all controlled by Chakrabarti.

When Reporters caught up with Ocasio-Cortez upon her arrival at Washington’s Reagan International Airport and asked her about the allegations, Ocasio-Cortez responded by stating,” there is no violation,” and added,” I’m 100% people funded me.”
