House Lawmakers Paid Thousands In Campaign Funds To Chinese Foreign Agent

Lavish Yet Lucid

Alexandria Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is actually among the four other House lawmakers charged with paying a Chinese foreign agent in order to assist with their 2022 re-election campaigning, as is reported intensively.

There’s a massive tension spiking between China and the United States and now with this being its all-time high, there are newly released campaign finance records that very graphically show the AOC is one of at least four of the House members who paid hefty sum to the Chinese newspaper in campaign fund last year itself during the re-election.

According to the filings from the Federal Election Commission as of now, AOC apparently paid Sing Tao Newspapers about $1,500 to run plenty of advertisements for her campaign during the 2022 midterm of the election when it was happening with full force and all focus.

House Representatives who go by the name Grace Meng (D-NY), Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY), and Kevin Mullin (D-CA) also subsequently paid the Chinese newspaper between $1,000 and $7,000 to run more or less similar advertisements for their respective midterm campaigns back in 2022.

Tensions Rising

Sing Tao U.S. is actually a subsidiary of Hong Kong-based Sing Tao News Corporation Limited and respectively, and the Chinese newspaper outlet was give or take, classified as a foreign agent by the Justice Department in August 2021. Sing Tao’s U.S. operations also reportedly constitute a large number of newspapers in the cities of New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco in addition to a radio station based out of Burlingame, California, USA.

Most of the company was actually purchased by the daughter, a young heiress of a very wealthy Chinese property owner back in June 2021 and at this point, the DOJ had entered the organization in order to register as a Chinese foreign agent right 2 months afterward. Even though the media company had time and again assured everyone that it is utterly free from the Chinese communist part’s influence of inspiration of any and every kind, it has been nonetheless classified as both a foreign as well as pro-Beijing outlet while there grew enormous problems between Washington and Beijing to even begin with, regarding the rise of the territorial stature of the island nation of Taiwan.

Democratic House Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is already under an intensive investigation by the House Ethics Committee. However, it has remained very unclear what might have prompted the investigation and what the probe is even related to. House Reps. Susan Wild (D-PA) and Michael Guest (R-MS) announced the House Ethics probe into AOC in December 2022, even though they emphasized that the investigation “does not itself indicate that any violation has occurred.”

As of now, it is unclear whether or not the investigation is even connected to AOC allegedly paying a Chinese foreign agent to help with her 2022 midterm re-election bid, but the New York congresswoman is “fully participating” in the ongoing investigation against her and her campaigners.
