Despite campaigining against “money in politics,” progressive starlet Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is controls a dark-money PAC according to an explosive Daily Caller report.
She also serves on the board of the PAC’s sister organization–and has served there since 2017 BEFORE running on her wildly progressive platform. Do as I say, not as I do, eh?
Daily Caller has more:
The group, Organize for Justice, is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization, meaning it can raise unlimited sums of money without having to disclose the identity of its donors to the public.
Organize for Justice’s website states that it is the “sister organization” of Justice Democrats, the PAC that, according to corporate filings, Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff have held control over since December 2017.
Ocasio-Cortez has frequently decried the use of dark money in politics. During her primary campaign, she said dark money was an “enemy to democracy” and that it poses a “very real danger” of silencing grassroots candidates.
Dark money is used to manipulate electorates. It is the enemy to democracy. Period.
When politicians and corporations weaved their dark web of campaign finance, they created a ticking time bomb for foreign adversaries.
To make our democracy safer, we need to get big money OUT. https://t.co/OYX62jboZH

Organize for Justice was founded by former Ocasio-Cortez campaign volunteers in November, according to corporate documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. Justice Democrats’ executive director, Alexandra Rojas, also serves on the board of the dark money group.
