Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) admitted that dark money is a problem on “both sides of the aisle” when asked about the recent scandal involving Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and dark money on Thursday.

A tracker for America Rising Squared asked Whitehouse if he had any thoughts on the reports that Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign manager funneled $1 million in donations to his private companies.

“Well, if we can pass a good dark-money law, which all the Republicans seem to be objecting to unfortunately, but if we can pass a good dark-money law, it would help put an end to this on both sides of the aisle,” Whitehouse said. “I don’t think dark money is bad only on the Republican side, although it occurs mostly on the Republican side. I think we need to get rid of dark money entirely.”

The tracker followed up by asking Whitehouse if he believed the Federal Election Commission (FEC) should investigate Ocasio-Cortez.

“I couldn’t tell you that without–” Whitehouse said before the elevator doors closed on him.
