Are you tired of hearing about Democrats being involved in scandals? Well, buckle up, because here comes another one. This time, it’s New York Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) who’s under the microscope.

A two-year federal investigation discovered that AOC’s campaign failed to “properly” disclose some of its expenses. Shockingly, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) decided to let her off the hook. It seems that playing by the rules doesn’t apply to everyone, especially if you’re a high-profile Democrat.

During AOC’s first run for Congress in 2018, her former chief of staff, Chaikat Sakrabarti, set up shell companies for Brand New Congress and Justice Democrats. The FEC found that these two political action committees failed to disclose the purpose of disbursements to these companies. Yet, the six-member panel voted 4-2 to dismiss a government watchdog complaint against AOC, despite discovering several instances of her breaking the rules and law.

The National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) filed a lawsuit against the FEC, condemning the agency for not providing a reason for dismissing the complaint. According to the New York Post, the NLPC’s original complaint alleged that AOC campaign treasurer Frank Llewellyn, Sakrabarti, and others funneled over $1 million in political donations into two companies controlled by Sakrabarti. These cash transfers may have violated the $5,000 contribution limit to federal candidates.

Paul Kamenar, NLPC counsel, called out the FEC’s apparent double standard: “The FEC has gone after a whole host of people whose violations are dwarfed by the scale of this scheme. It appears to be not prosecutorial discretion, but prosecutorial favoritism.”

But AOC’s legal troubles don’t end there. The House Office of Congressional Ethics found “substantial reason to believe” that she might have violated federal law when accepting “impermissible gifts” linked to her attendance at the 2021 Met Gala, where she wore a “Tax the Rich” dress.

The Office of Congressional Ethics concluded that if AOC “accepted impermissible gifts, then she may have violated House rules, standards of conduct, and federal law.” AOC, however, denies any wrongdoing.

This pattern of Democrats bending or breaking the rules is disheartening and frustrating for those who believe in accountability and integrity. When high-profile figures like AOC get away with questionable actions, it undermines the public’s trust in our political system.

The time has come for Americans to demand better from their representatives. We need politicians who prioritize honesty, transparency and adherence to the law. Let’s make it clear that we won’t stand for favoritism or double standards, and that we expect our elected officials—Democrat or Republican—to be held accountable for their actions.

AOC’s case is just another example of why we need a conservative movement that values the rule of law and promotes good governance. It’s crucial for the future of our nation that we champion politicians who prioritize the interests of the people they serve, rather than their own.
