AOC falsely claims pro-Jeb Bush super PAC behind ethics complaints against her, doubles down with another false claim.
Newly-elected Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tried this week to delegitimize ethics complaints lodged against her by falsely linking watchdog groups to a totally separate Republican super PAC that received a record fine from the FEC over foreign money.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is trying to convince her cult-like followers.
Both tweets are inaccurate.

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez botched the facts Monday night in a series of tweets attempting to discredit ethics complaints that watchdog groups that have filed against her.
Ocasio-Cortez has already racked up three ethics complaints since taking office in January: two for allegedly misusing congressional resources, and one alleging her chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, set up a million-dollar private slush fund.
Ocasio-Cortez has also faced legal scrutiny over her and Chakrabarti’s control of an outside super PAC, Justice Democrats that was a driving force behind her congressional campaign — an arrangement former FEC commissioners say may have violated federal election laws.
The freshman congresswoman on Monday falsely claimed that Right to Rise, a Republican super PAC hit with an FEC fine on Monday, was behind the ethics complaints.
“Whoah: the creepy org filing bogus ethics complaints against me just *actually* got hit with one of the biggest fines in FEC history,” Ocasio-Cortez falsely asserted. More

But, the Daily Caller added, former Right to Rise operative Luke Thompson was never mentioned in the complaint against Right to Rise, and doesn’t work at any of the groups that filed ethics complaints against Ocasio-Cortez.
Additionally, he doesn’t work for the groups filing ethics complaints against the congresswoman.
It’s not the first false claim she’s made and chances are, it won’t be the last.
