Many participants did not know that their Fun Run registrations were actually donations to AOC’s campaign slush fund.

A freshman Congresswoman from New York is facing scrutiny after hosting a “Fun Run” after some participants were unaware that their donations were actually campaign contributions.

“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez held a 5k in Queens Saturday that she billed as ‘a Family Fun Run supporting U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal on the Saturday following Earth Day,'” according to The New York Post. 

Many of the 400 participants, the report said, did not know that the $30 registration fee for the run was actually a donation to the Congresswoman’s campaign fund.

A vaguely worded notices on AOC’s Facebook page — saying that the run would support “U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez & the Green New Deal” — worsened the confusion.

But the fine print on a third event-related website revealed the truth.

“Registration fees are contributions to AOC for Congress,” reads the legal disclosure on aoc5k.com, which lists the Federal Election Commission rules that donors must follow.

Ocasio-Cortez’s spokesman, Corbin Trent, confirmed that the run was a fundraising event.

At least one participant voiced his concern over the lack of transparency from the Congresswoman’s office.

“The site says it’s to benefit her environmental plan,” one participant reportedly said. “If it is going to go directly to her campaign they should have said so.”

Furthermore, some parents registered their children, thus contributing to the Congresswoman’s campaign under their children’s names – a potential violation of campaign finance law.

The young House Rep has had some serious run-ins with campaign finance rules already in her short tenure in Congress. She was accused of paying her boyfriend Riley Roberts out of her campaign coffers, and a March Federal Elections Commission complaint alleges that her campaign moved nearly $1 million “off the books.”

Report: Ghislane Maxwell Being “Moved from Cell to Cell” to Avoid “Assassins”

They fear another Epstein incident.

Published

Longtime Jeffrey Epstein associate Ghislane Maxwell is reportedly being “moved from cell to cell” to prevent any potential assassination attempts while in jail, according to an anonymous source close to the heiress who spoke to the Daily Mail.

Maxwell is being detained at MDC Brooklyn, a federal detention facility. It was originally feared she’d be placed in the Manhattan Detention Complex, the facility where the shocking death of infamous pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein took place. Maxwell is being federally charged with six counts relating to her alleged participation in Epstein’s underage sex trafficking operation, after being arrested at a remote New Hampshire home.

She is also someone who isn’t posh or prissy. She is being moved from cell to cell and sometimes has a cellmate, sometimes not. They [the authorities] are terrified someone will try to kill her so they keep moving her around.

The Department of Justice is taking extraordinary precautions in safeguarding Maxwell within the federal jail facility, doubtlessly seeking to avoid a repeat of the shocking Epstein death that continues to cast a shadow over the American criminal justice system.

The Daily Mail has reported on another supposed (former) Maxwell associate, who claims that Epstein’s former madame has video evidence of the billionaire’s elite political and financial connects engaging in the sexual abuse of minors. Epstein and Maxwell allegedly procured the footage for use as dirt, if they were ever threatened with prosecution for criminal activities.

Maxwell’s first court appearance is currently slated for Friday.
