Financial records have revealed that AOC and three other members of Congress paid thousands in advertising costs to a Chinese newspaper in order to help with their election campaigns. As tensions mount between Washington and Beijing, the GOP-controlled House is beginning to prioritize addressing the rising threat posed by China and increased competition.

A review of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s 2022 campaign financial records showed that she spent about $1,500 on advertising with China’s Sing Tao Newspapers.

According to filings from the Federal Election Commission (FEC), Rep. Grace Meng (D-N.Y.), Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-N.Y.), and Rep. Kevin Mullin (D-Calif.) also paid between $1,000 and $7,000 to Sing Tao entities in reelection campaign advertising expenses.

Sing Tao U.S. is a subsidiary of the Hong Kong-based Sing Tao News Corporation Ltd, and their newspaper is pro-Beijing. In August 2021, the DOJ forced Sing Tao to register as a Chinese foreign agent according to Foreign Acts Registration (FARA) filings.

Over half of the company’s U.S.-based content is purchased from Star Production Limited, another Chinese company.

While Sing Tao has insisted it is free from CCP influence, the Council on Foreign Relations has said this doesn’t matter since China possesses one of the “world’s most restrictive media environments, relying on censorship to control information in the news, online, and on social media.”
