It is only the beginning of the third month that Ms Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is in congress but already more articles have been written about the fresh congresswoman from the Bronx than anyone else on the Democratic side.
This latest string of news could prove to be her undoing though as the Washington Times claimed that Ms Ocasio-Cortez’s former Chief of Staff, Tech Millionaire Mr Saikat Chakrabarti, has funneled over $1 million in political donations to his own companies.
It was clear from the well-controlled social media programs surrounding AOC and the many trolling answers anyone got who dared to criticize her that there was a well-oiled machinery behind the young congresswoman, but no one ever dared to question how much money was actually involved.
In an explosive piece, the Washington Times yesterday claimed that her Chief of Staff made sure that a serious part of the political donations Ms Ocasio-Cortez received were funneled to his own companies.

Seeing the scandal take root and knowing that the reporting on it would spread in the coming days, Ms Alexandria-Cortez distanced herself from Mr Chakrabarti, saying: “He’s not on my payroll. They were not working for me and they are two separate entities here. This is the difference between an LLC and a PAC.”
