AOC Refuses To Pay Her $250,000 Dues To House Democratic Campaign Arm

(Gateway Pundit) – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is refusing to pay her dues to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, instead saying that she will funnel money directly to Democrats who are facing tough races.

When asked by the Hill if she would be paying her dues, the controversial far-left Congresswoman replied “I don’t think so.” She has long been outspoken against the DCCC being biased against more progressive candidates.

On Friday, Fox News reported that she will not be paying up, which has upset some of her Democrat peers.

“Sometimes the question comes: ‘Do you want to be in a majority or do you want to be in the minority?’ ” Democrat Rep. Gregory Meeks told Fox News. “And do you want to be part of a team?”

Ocasio-Cortez, once a longshot candidate, has become a fundraising powerhouse with the progressive left. In the third-quarter of 2019, she raised the most out of any House Democrat — even Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The Hill reports that her most recent federal filing revealed that she raised more than $1.4 million between July 1 and Sept. 30.

“I’m happy to support some incumbents, but it’s not just a blanket rule,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a comment to Fox.

The dues that she is expected to pay to the DCCC come out to roughly $250,000 for the 2020 campaign season.

“We are trying to raise the equivalent of my dues directly to other members,” Ocasio-Cortez told The Hill.

Flashback: Ocasio-Cortez Claims Trump Engaged In ‘Act Of War’ By Killing Soleimani

President Trump engaged in an “act of war” by issuing the airstrike that killed Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani, wrote Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) Friday.

The Democrat congresswoman tweeted:

Friday, Trump defended the airstrike that killed the head of Iran’s elite Quds Force by stating that it was done to prevent a conflict, not start one.

“We took action last night to stop a war, we did not take action to start a war,” he said, adding that “Soleimani made the death of innocent people his sick passion. We remember and honor the victims of Soleimani’s many atrocities and we take comfort in knowing that his reign of terror is over.”

In a subsequent tweet, Ocasio-Cortez urged her followers not to fall for the message of so-called “war advocates”:

However, critics have failed to recognize that Iran has been the aggressor, not the United States, according to Breitbart News’s Joel B. Pollak.

Friday, he wrote:

Moreover, Soleimani’s death actually improves the prospects for peace by encouraging the Iranian people to stand up against their rulers. The message to the Iranian people was clear: America is not against you, but against your oppressors. As if to help Trump, Iranian state TV reportedly stopped all programming to broadcast tributes to Soleimani. The Iranian people know: Trump cares more about them than their leaders do.

Phillip Smyth, an expert at the Washington Institute on Iran-controlled Shia militias and the Middle East, recently called Soleimani’s death a “major blow” to the Iranian regime.

“I would argue that this is probably the most major decapitation strike the United States has ever carried out. … This is a man who controlled a transnational foreign legion that was controlling governments in numerous different countries,” Smyth said.

“It’s an incredible two-fer,” he commented. “This is another one of those old hands. These guys don’t grow on trees. It takes time.”

  1. Hi All,
    Some one should give these morons like AOC, which stands for (A)bsolutely (O)fficious (C)*#t, a lesson on the world facts before they open their pie holes. Both an Embassy premises (Chancery) and Consular premises (Consulate) are inviolate by treaty (Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, 1961 and Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, 1963). The language differs slightly, but it each case the host nation has a responsibility to protect the premises. It an act of war, hence taking out the military planner, Gem Salami, is a proper response. Morons like AOC need to be charged with treason. 18 U.S. Code § 2381. Treason -(Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States. Enough said.

  2. When wealthy Republicans hold offive they leave poorer than they started. When poor Democrats win office they leave very wealthy!! That should answer all questions!!

  3. I support AOC not giving up the $250,000 dues. Remember she is the low income bartender elected to Congress who has to sleep at the YMCA because she can’t afford an apartment in Washington.

  4. Donations and AOC trying to keep monenies Donated to her thru dems ……………But I’ve been watching someone running ‘to beat her and also population in the area doesnt accout for a house of rep in her area ……. and her boyfriend she funded with the ppl’s money for his bissness ………..and so on and so forth AOC as crooked as hllary and Pelosi !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! VOTE HER OUT along the other #3 !

  5. Cortez you should follow up on what you said earlier about being in another country running, think you should go for it. Cortez is nothing but a stuck up little snob she acts like she doesn’t have to pay then again that’s what the whole democract party does they don’t pay for anything. I hope she is nothing but a one time congresswoman.

  6. ‘SHE’S out-raising pelosi?’….uhhh, don’t think so. ‘She’ can’t balance a checkbook. ‘She’ is a front moron for groups funded by traitors like soros, etc. ‘She’ is a flunky of the worst sort….

  7. Excellent, more division among the democrats. I’m waiting for Michele Obama to announce she will run. That might unite them I’m afraid.

  8. I am surprised she would have that kind of money, it was my understanding that the only reason she become a politician is because she was unable to support herself as a prostitute.

  9. It’s amazing how not even completing her first term, she knows how to become a political crook. Welcome AOC as a crook.
