PAC aligned with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez paid boyfriend $6G for marketing work

A political action committee (PAC) aligned with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez paid her boyfriend $6,000 during the infancy of her campaign.

The Brand New Congress PAC (BNC), a political arm of Brand New Congress LLC, a company that was hired by Ocasio-Cortez to run and support her campaign, paid Riley Roberts for marketing services he provided to the PAC.

According to FEC records, the PAC made two payments to Roberts – one in August 2017 and one in September 2017 – both for $3,000.

In a statement to Fox News, BNC’s Communications Director Zeynab Day said that Roberts “is a professional digital marketing and growth consultant who specializes in social media presence and subscriber engagement” and his hiring was based “on his experience managing successful advertising and social media campaigns.”
