Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. and the “Squad” freshman Democrats entered Congress less than a year ago.
Now, three of the four of them are already under investigation for various financial misdeeds.
Ocasio-Cortez, along with Ilhan Omar, D-M.N., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., each violated campaign finance laws, investigators believe.
And it all starts at the top, trickling down from the ring leader herself, Ocasio-Cortez.
In 2017, Daily Caller reports, Ocasio-Cortez was in-part ushered into politics through the Justice Democrats PAC group.

So she and her campaign manager, Saikat Chakrabarti, allegedly used their positions as board members at the political Super PAC to bolster AOC’s campaign and get her elected.
Earlier this year, in April, a complaint was filed against Ocasio-Cortez for failing to disclose that board membership position at Justice Democrats to the Federal Election Commission (FEC).
And now she’s at the center of a troubling misconduct investigation, which could even land her in jail, according to sources featured in Daily Caller.
Next in line, Ilhan Omar has a storied history of campaign finance violations, but none more blatant than her campaign paying her Democratic lobbyist boyfriend (whom she’s having an affair with) thousands of dollars.
The Daily Caller is writing that investigators allege these payments were made for “travel” purposes.
Omar used her campaign money for romantic getaways all around the country — approximately $370,000 worth!
And still… she wasn’t even the only “Squad” member to use campaign funds for her own personal exploits.

Tlaib is in the thick of it — under investigation by the House Ethics Committee for allegedly using $17,500 in donor cash for her personal play money, with investigators uncovering text messages which revealed she had used the money for things like “child care” and “car maintenance.”
According to Fox News, the law Tlaib broke is a very simple one: “Federal campaign finance law (52 U.S.C. §30114(b)) prohibits the use of campaign funds for personal use,” it writes.
It’s more of the same for Democratic politicians.
