Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is hiding one ugly truth that could end her career
The Fake News Media portrays Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as an invincible political superstar.
Ocasio-Cortez is even talked about as a future President once she reaches the Constitutionally mandated minimum age to run for the office.
But Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is hiding one ugly truth that could end her career.
Ocasio-Cortez built a grassroots phenomenon of a political brand thanks to her upset primary win over the fourth ranking democrat in the House and her massive social media following.
But she could be a paper tiger whose support is deeper nationally than at home.
That’s because Ocasio-Cortez’s latest fundraising report found she only listed ten donors in her district.
The Daily Caller reports:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has outraised all other freshmen representatives so far in 2019, but nearly all of her reported contributors to her reelection campaign live outside her congressional district, a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings found.
Ocasio-Cortez’s reelection campaign has reported receiving contributions from just 10 individuals living within her district in the first half of 2019, according to its Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings.
The FEC only requires that political campaigns disclose the names and addresses of individuals who contribute over $200 to their campaigns during an election. Campaigns report their big-dollar donors to the FEC in what’s called itemized contributions.
The $1,525.50 Ocasio-Cortez received from her New York constituents represents less than 1% of her campaign’s itemized contributions reported to the FEC in the first half of 2019.
Ocasio-Cortez backed off her feud with Nancy Pelosi just before this report was released.
And this could be a reason Ocasio-Cortez beat a hasty retreat.
Pelosi would have no problem recruiting a primary challenger who would run to actually represent the district instead of making a star out of herself on social media.
