A-Owe-C Angering Fellow Democrats, Not Paying Party Dues, Funding Progressive ‘Primary’ Candidates Instead

on

You gotta give it to her.  She’s got cojones bigger than Chuck Schumer.

In her short amount of time in Congress, Brooklyn New York’s Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez has topped fundraising charts, not even talking about the $1 million that was allegedly stolen by her boyfriend/manager by funneling the money into private accounts, but nonetheless, she’s being a real cheapskate when it comes to paying her dues to the Democrats’ House campaign organization, which has angered many of her colleagues.

The Congresswoman who is dumb as a box of hair has actually created her own fundraising operation to help get other progressive candidates elected by doing an end-around of the Democratic Party apparatus, and she is so far not funding candidates to beat Republicans, but for primary challenges in her own party.

From Fox News:

“Sometimes the question comes: ‘Do you want to be in a majority or do you want to be in the minority?’” Rep. Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y., told Fox News, when asked about AOC’s stance. “And do you want to be part of a team?”

Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) Chairwoman Cheri Bustos downplayed Ocasio-Cortez’s decision to shun dues and pointed to the record-breaking fundraising numbers the committee has notched without her.

“That’s always up to individual members so I guess I don’t think about it one way or another,” Bustos said when asked about Ocasio-Cortez’s stance. “We’re raising record amounts of money from our members.”

The DCCC declined to comment further on the matter of Ocasio-Cortez and her dues.

Another Democrat was less diplomatic: “Deadbeat Cortez should pay her bills,” complained the Democratic source. “She’s always whining about people paying their fair share and here she is leaving her friends with the bill.”

What’s got their panties in a twist is that A-owe-C hasn’t given any cash to the DCCC, which is the Democratic Party’s organization that has the sole responsibility for electing Democrats to the House.  Records show the former bartender hasn’t paid any of the $250,000 in dues she owes to the DCCC.

And it’s not an oversight or that she’s cheap.  AOC is claiming she has a beef with the DCCC, because they won’t support progressive primary candidates, and so she’s withholding her money.  She is punishing her party for not backing other radical leftist loons like her.

“For me personally, I’m not paying D-trip dues,” said Ocasio-Cortez, using slang for the DCCC and counting off a “myriad of reasons.”

“One, I don’t agree with the policy around blacklisting groups that help progressive candidates,” she said, referring to a DCCC effort to sideline vendors who assist challengers to members of Congress. “I think we need to evolve as a party and make room for that.”

Do you blame the DCCC?  They’ve been running things since time began and along comes a dingbat woman from New York, who allegedly auditioned for the part through Justice Democrats, who has done more face plants in Congress than any ten combined, and she’s going to out and out tell them that she’s working counter to their wishes?

A-owe-C, instead, is building her own donor base, and she’s getting help from 2020 hopeful Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) who she endorsed for president back in October.  The money raised will go directly to progressive candidates, otherwise known as those politicians who hate Americans and want to destroy the Constitution.
