AOC's 'Fake Scandals' Tweet Fails the Test of Truth

Linkedin Share

There are plenty of instances in which the nation’s confidence in Congress has been shaken.  At times, a shaky Congress has seemed like a way of life for Americans.  But the addition of one precocious new character to the mix has taken this sentiment into the stratosphere.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 28 year old former bartender from New York City, has become the millennial maven at the center of a great percentage of the mainstream news…but not for some profound and powerful reason.  No, AOC has the Joe Biden Curse, in which democrats begin to utter the most incredibly embarrassing gaffes and most profound asinine public statements on either side of the aisle.

AOC’s latest was a tweet aimed at discrediting legitimate investigations into her campaign and political career.

Now for the test of truth…

But “a ton” appears to be three — and the claims against her don’t appear to be “random.”

The Coolidge Reagan Foundation, a nonprofit, filed an ethics complaint last week alleging that Ocasio-Cortez had used House resources for personal means when she allowed her boyfriend to obtain a email address. The complaint also alleged that she obtained the email address by falsely listing him as a staff member.

Just a few days earlier, the National Legal and Policy Center had filed a complaintwith the FEC alleging an incestuous relationship between Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign and Justice Democrats — a PAC which was at the time controlled by the congresswoman and her chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti — in addition to possible campaign finance violations.

And, finally:

A third complaint was filed by The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, which alleged that Ocasio-Cortez’s social media use may violate House ethics rules. At issue is her use of a political Instagram account — which contains direct links to her House Instagram account and includes a link for political contributions — includes posts of official video footage from the House floor.

Young democrats were certain that Ocasio-Cortez would make a big splash upon arriving in Congress, but the’ve now found themselves frantically swimming to escape her wake.
