NEW YORK POST:

The chickens have come home to roost. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff have been removed from the board of the Justice Democrats PAC, according to a report.

The Democrat from New York and Saikat Chakrabarti, who was her campaign chairman, were de-listed last Friday, the Daily Caller reported on Monday, citing documents from the Washington, DC, Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs.

The action was taken because the two never told the Federal Election Commission that they controlled the PAC while it was simultaneously supporting her primary campaign, the report said.

The two joined the board in December 2017 and continued to hold “legal control over the entity” leading up to her June 2018 Democratic primary win over incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley, the report said.

Ocasio-Cortez was removed from the board the same month but was listed as an “entity governor” until March 14, the Daily Caller reported, citing corporate filings.
