Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has spent a lot of time repeatedly demonizing billionaires and attacking other Democrats for accepting money from billionaires since entering politics.
However, Ocasio-Cortez is now under fire for once again being a hypocrite as FEC records show that Ocasio-Cortez accepted $2,700, the maximum a person can donate to a campaign, from billionaire Tom Steyer — who is now a Democrat presidential candidate — in August 2018.
“Steyer, a longtime Democratic donor who has largely funded the majority of his presidential campaign, donated $2,700 to the Queens representative’s campaign on August 29, 2018, according to Open Secrets,” The New York Post reported. “The donation was made through the former hedge fund manager’s family office, Fahr LLC, prior to his July 2019 announcement that he would seek the Democratic nomination.” . . .
Ocasio-Cortez also judges Republicans and Democrats by different standards, which was evident when she immediately jumped on the Democrats’ smear campaign of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh but then completely ignored allegations against Virginia Democrat Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax.
Ocasio-Cortez, who had a meltdown when she was momentarily held to the same standard as President Donald Trump by fact-checkers, also does not vote in accordance with her rhetoric, which is often dishonest and extreme.
