(Tea Party PAC) – Feisty little socialist upstart, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is thumbing her nose at her party’s old guard.
This girl will do anything to get attention.
This time around, AOC is refusing to pay her dues to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, saying she will funnel the money directly to Democrats who face tough races, like herself.
When the New York congresswoman was asked by The Hill if she could be paying her dues to the DCCC, she said she didn’t “think so.”
She has long clashed with the DCCC, claiming they are biased against progressive candidates (of course, if they wanted to win at all, they’d probably try even harder to get the progressive faction in their party to pipe the hell down.)
On Friday, Fox News reported that she will not, in fact, be coughing up the cash, which is attracting the ire of her colleagues.
“Sometimes the question comes: ‘Do you want to be in a majority or do you want to be in the minority?’ ” Democrat Rep. Gregory Meeks told Fox News of AOC’s rebellion. “And do you want to be part of a team?”
AOC was herself a longshot candidate, but, with the help of Soros money and elite progressive organizations, catapulted into Congress and extraordinary fame between being the youngest congresswoman in history and a raging Marxist demagogue.
She has now become a fundraising powerhouse among the progressive left, having raised the most out of any House Democrat in the third quarter of 2019–including Nancy Pelosi!
The Hill reports that her most recent federal filing revealed that she had raised over $¼ million between July 1 and September 30.
“I’m happy to support some incumbents, but it’s not just a blanket rule,” Ocasio-Cortez told Fox News.
She is expected by the DCCC to pay $250,000 for the 2020 campaign season.
“We are trying to raise the equivalent of my dues directly to other members,” Ocasio-Cortez told The Hill.
This is just the latest example of how this one, Soros-funded former bartender is tearing her party apart.
