AOC has declared on numerous occasions that Leadership PACs are nothing more than slush funds for lawmakers, who routinely use the loosely regulated accounts to pay for luxury travel and pricey meals — as well as a means of distributing cash to political allies.
And of course, AOC the do as I say, not as I do delusional Democrat squad member started fundraising through her ‘Courage to Change’ PAC which will benefit her even more directly than those evil PACs she’s always whining about.
“We are pushing the envelope in DC by rewarding those who reject lobbyist money, fight for working families, & welcome newcomers,” AOC tweeted Saturday while announcing Courage to Change, a leadership PAC she set up within weeks of her 2018 election victory.
The post came a day after AOC was slammed for refusing to pay dues to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, despite her bulging campaign coffers.
The website AOC directed her followers to in her tweet notes that contributions will be divided evenly between the PAC and Ocasio-Cortez’s personal campaign fund.
AOC raised an unprecedented $1.42 million in the third quarter of 2019 — and had an eye-popping $1.9 million in cash on hand as of Sept. 30, according to the Federal Election Commission.
