AOC And CoS In Big Trouble With FEC

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

CoS = Chief of Staff, Saikat Chakrabarti. He works for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the money amounts to more than $885,000. Ruh Roh…

Saikat worked for Bernie Sanders for two years and for his presidential campaign… then Saikat launched an organization called ‘Brand New Congress’… in the process of mobilizing hundreds of new socialist congressional candidates, he connected with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Saikat is the Chief of Staff for AOC. ‘Brand New Congress’ is a Delaware-based shell company and he used a registered agent to create the company and only has a post office box.

Chakrabarti was the brains behind the Green New Deal, which was drafted over a weekend by several of his like-minded operatives. His plan is to transform climate change policy, the complete U.S. economy and of course, criminal justice. He is a graduate of Harvard and a techie.

Saikat founded a political action committee in Tennessee entitled ‘Justice Democrats’. AOC’s campaign funds paid his PAC an estimated $41,000 for services including consulting.

Saikat launched several companies and big money, around $900,000, was later transferred to one of those corporations. Off the books, of course, skirting PAC disclosure laws. When questioned about the transfer transactions, Justice Democrats published a statement found here.

According to Wikipedia, a little more information provided:

After the 2016 presidential election resulted in a victory for Donald Trump, many progressives pointed to the perceived loyalty of politicians to large donors as a major contributing factor to Clinton’s loss to Trump. These critics contend that a campaign finance model more similar to that of Bernie Sanders, whose 2016 presidential campaign was funded by small individual donations, will increase public trust in politicians and accountability to constituents.

On January 23, 2017, Cenk Uygur and Kyle Kulinski founded Justice Democrats with ten others, including former staffers from the Sanders campaign such as its Director of Organizing Technology, Saikat Chakrabarti, and fundraiser Zack Exley.[11][12][13] According to the organization, they seek to create a left-wing populist movement to support alternative Democratic candidates beginning with the 2018 mid-term elections, in order to either defeat the incumbent Democrats or cause them to become accountable to their constituents. They require their candidates to take a pledge to refuse financial contributions from billionaires and corporations.[5] In addition, they hope to rebuild the Democratic Party on a national level and to defeat President Trump if he runs for re-election in 2020.

The Democrats used to represent something wonderful – voters. We want you to represent just us, not your donors.— Cenk Uygur explaining the name of the group[14]

Justice Democrats announced in March 2017 they had teamed up with Brand New Congress, a PAC established by former Sanders campaign supporters, to further their goals.[13]

As of March 20, 2017, Justice Democrats have reported they have received 8,300 nominations and raised $1 million.[15]

Representative Ro Khanna of California’s 17th congressional district announced on May 9, 2017, that he had become a Justice Democrat, and the first sitting member of Congress to join the organization.[16] On November 1, 2017, Justice Democrats announced on social media that fellow progressive group AllOfUs had merged with the group.[17][18]
