AOC Starts a Progressive PAC

AOC Starts a Progressive PAC

( – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) (AOC) always has the potential to stir up controversy. Yet again, she manages to deliver. This time AOC has managed to irk the Democratic party at large.

AOC is now starting up a political action committee (PAC) to raise funds for progressive primary candidates. Specifically, she wants this PAC to fund candidates that would challenge centrist and establishment Democratic incumbents. AOC might claim that she wants “fresh faces” to enter the Democrat party, but this is more about pushing a radical-left agenda.

Here’s the kicker: AOC hasn’t paid her Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) dues yet and, apparently, doesn’t plan to pay up. DCCC funds are generally allocated to House members to aid with their campaign. The DCCC also blacklists any organization that funds “progressive” candidates.

AOC justified her actions on Twitter.

So, AOC is essentially holding DCCC funding hostage in order to create her own PAC. In short, this is how “progressives” will pay for their initiatives and programs: by stealing from their own party.
