    It gets worse:

    HAVING FOUND A CACHE OF THE EXTREMELY GULLIBLE: Campaign Violation: AOC Dupes Green New Deal ‘Fun Run’ Participants.

    [​IMG]

    While many people were focusing on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s political tweet about the tragedy at Poway Chabad, others realized that her cutesy ‘fun run’ for the Green New Deal wasn’t about the Green New Deal at all. Nope, it was about raising money for her reelection campaign.

    She already has a history of campaign shenanigans such as paying her boyfriend under the table and her problematic swamp issues with the two PAC’s and LLC’s that she’d been involved in. One would think with that scrutiny, she’d tread more carefully in the future. Evidently not.

    “Environmentally conscious supporters — who jogged through Astoria Park alongside a beaming, strolling AOC — believed their money was going to help save the planet.

    “It’s going to help raise awareness and educate people,” a female runner told The Post.

    “I think it’s really for this particular New Green Deal,” said Brian Schwartz of Long Island. “No question.”

    “It’s to help the environment. To support the Green New Deal,” another woman said. “It’s a good cause.””​

    Which good cause was that? Not the Green New Deal.

    Not only did many participants not realize this wasn’t raising money in support of the Green New Deal, some folks might be on the hook for campaign violations as well. Why?

    “Even kids as young as 3 became unknowing political donors — ponying up $20 fees to join a kids’ 1k.

    But by fudging the fact that those fees were actually campaign contributions, AOC may have enticed constituents into inadvertently breaking federal election laws.

    Parents, for example, can’t contribute their own funds in a child’s name.” ​

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is showing us time and again that her Green New Deal is all about her and the benefits she stands to realize from it

    Very disingenuous of her but she's a Dumbocrat, a "cute" young woman so they'll give her a pass. I'd demand a refund.
