Ocasio-Cortez responded after the National Legal and Policy Center's Government Integrity Project filed an FEC complaint saying her top aide shifted the funds in what it argued could have been a bid to avoid disclosure.
But while Ocasio-Cortez claimed that "none of this is whataboutism", not everyone seemed to be convinced by her reasoning.
The complaint listed several examples of campaign services provided by the company, including door-knocking and canvassing operations, as well as running events for the benefit of certain candidates.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sent out a fundraising email Thursday alleging that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) was "coming after" her and some of her colleagues. "Additionally, on Ocasio-Cortez's political Instagram page, she directly links to her official House Instagram account and includes a link for political contributions, alongside the posts of official video footage and her comments on official action". "You might say from a campaign finance angle that the LLC was essentially operating as an unregistered committee". This raises the obvious question of what "strategic consulting" work these companies did to earn over $1 million in fees within that time period despite having no recognized activity or personnel apart from Charkrabarti.

"Their candidates are proven to be absolutely insane, AOC, right?" he said, referring to Ocasio-Cortez. Even more tellingly, while Brand New Campaign LLC is registered in DE, there are no Secretary of State records for Brand New Congress LLC, and the time or location of its incorporation remain unknown.
The stated objective was to help elect progressive candidates to Congress.
