‘The squad’ is mired in campaign finance scandals for allegedly cheating their way into congress.
- Ocasio-Cortez could face ‘jail time’ over an unreported affiliation with outside PAC.
- Ilhan Omar diverted campaign funds to an alleged boyfriend.
- House ethics panel recommends a subpoena over Rashida Tlaib’s campaign payments.
Let’s see if they are actually held accountable…
Under investigation doesn’t mean a dam thing anymore.

The three most prolific members of the so-called “squad” of freshman Democratic congresswoman face allegations of violating campaign finance laws and House ethics rules for their personal or political benefit 10 months into their terms.
Below are the Federal Election Commission (FEC) complaints and House ethics inquiries that have been filed against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan since they took Washington, D.C., by storm in January with the promise of bringing about a more equitable and just world.
Ocasio-Cortez’s political rise in 2018 was made possible in large part to Justice Democrats PAC, an outside political action committee that recruited her to enter politics in 2017 and provided much of her campaign’s staffing and overhead needs in the lead-up to her June 2018 primary victory over former Rep. Joe Crowley.
Ocasio-Cortez’s relationship with Justice Democrats became the subject of intense scrutiny in 2019, resulting in two complaints submitted to the FEC. More
So what, as seen time and time again when Democrats break the law, investigations and strongly worded letters happen but nothing else.
I agree I’m tired of hearing that these crooks are under investigation I want them to be held accountable arrested fined and thrown out of office!!!

This is pretty common with new politicians. Many get caught, may get pay small fines, learn to conceal the theft in a better way.
Let’s see where it goes? Why is it financial crimes committed with campaign monies are not considered criminal and just violations? Sounds like the fox guarding the hen house to me.

By the third or fourth term, they have it down pat and usually have made so much money from insider trading that they no longer need to steal campaign funds.Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
