The claim is that she's the poster child for LIBERALS...and not necessarily Democrats...

She's pushing the far Left Democrat party to the far, far far Left, and the media is rolling out the red carpet for her...

She won in a VERY far Left district and only 13% of registered Democrats even voted in the primary...That's not even a sniff of being some powerhouse yet she's treated as such...

Most voters stayed home for stunning Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez win

Quote:
Here’s what you get when you hold primary elections in June: A tiny percentage of party voters determine the congressional candidates.

Even in the most competitive races Tuesday, more than 80 percent of eligible voters stayed home.

In the race that caused an earthquake in the Democratic Party, 28-year-old newcomer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez upset longtime Rep. Joe Crowley, 57 percent to 42 percent.

But only about 13 percent of registered Democrats turned out to vote in the 14th Congressional District that takes in parts of Queens and the Bronx, according to a preliminary city Board of Elections tally.

There are 214,750 active registered Democratic voters in the district. Only 27,744 voted, and Ocasio-Cortez won by more than 4,000 votes.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez states that she wont accept campaign contributions from corporate donors or big business.
According to OpenSecrets.org her 4th largest donor is JPMorgan Chase & Company. https://www.opensecrets.org/races/co...id=NY14&spec=N
I didn't know that JPMorgan Chase was just a mom & pop outfit.

JPMorgan CEO on skilled foreign workers: 'I want them to stay here'

Clearly, immigrants tend to be better educated and start small businesses. You ever hear of “native-born” (aka white) people doing that? Nope. Clearly, without the help of those “undocumented,” there would be no jobs created in America. And yet the whites want to kick them out? Is this out of their jealousy for the undocumented’s high-educational achievement and entrepreneurial spirit; something the native whites simply lack? JPMorgan Chase is a bank that can see the beautiful multiethnic forest for the trees; trees that will be destroyed if Trump’s WHITE walkers have their way in this country.
I do know justice democrats are small individual donations. JP Morgan has given less than half, and if you read the second linked article, they have invested in humanitarian donation in Europe because they realize Europe's future.
so no pay for play or quid pro quo.

Gawd I love this woman. She's gonna be a non-stop source of comedy.

ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ CHANGES HER BIO, STILL LYING ABOUT HER PAST

A reminder about the reality of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the "girl" from Westchester.

Nor is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a “girl from the Bronx”. She’s the daughter of an architect from a pricey suburb in Westchester County. Her father, a Pratt Institute grad, was a founder of KOR which stood for Kirschenbaum & Ocasio-Roman Architects. The Ocasio (rather than the Kirschenbaum) part of the name meant that it operated as a “certified minority business enterprise” which came with assorted privileges...

... a suburban leftist with a bio consisting of studying International Relations at Boston U, working on immigration issues for Ted Kennedy, serving as the National Hispanic Institute's Social Entrepreneur in Residence, producing a web series, shuttling between trendy lefty protests and founding what appears to a defunct social justice publishing house.

Now Cortez has adjusted her bio. Just not enough.

The bio previously stated, “She ended up attending public school 40 minutes north in Yorktown, and much of her life was defined by the 40-minute commute between school and her family in the Bronx.”

That sentence in the bio has since been changed, though it still doesn’t explicitly state that she moved out of the Bronx to Yorktown when she was 5 years old.

“She ended up attending public school in Yorktown, 40 minutes north of her birthplace,” it now states. “As a result, much of her early life was spent in transit between her tight-knit extended family in the Bronx & her daily student life."

The edit job is still misleading and dishonest.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wasn't commuting to school from a poor neighborhood. That's what her bio still misleadingly implies. Everyone commutes to see their relatives.

Claiming to be the "Girl from the Bronx" because you have relatives in the Bronx is as phony as the rest of Cortez's routine.

Less than half of what? Several of those names on her donor list are businesses.

No matter how hard Salty or libs try to spin it and defend Socialist Girl, they can't. She lied. Period. Don't pass Go. Don't collect $200.

Quote:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic Socialist running for Congress, recently claimed she doesn’t accept donations from corporations or private equity firms.

However, election filing documents suggest otherwise.
Quote:
The documents show that Ocasio-Cortez received $3,399 JP Morgan Chase, a major Wall Street corporate bank, and $2,700 from Elevation Partners, a New York-based private equity firm with nearly $2 billion in assets.
