Boy oh boy, that did not take long. Despite AOC’s lack of knowledge of significant issues and tendency to always say the dumbest thing at the worst time, Freshman Democratic Socialist  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seemed to have an idealism about her ignorant policies, but after only four months in Washington D.C., she has become a typical swampy politician. As first reported by the NY Post AOC pulled a campaign fundraising bait and switch as participants in a fun run she organized were unaware their registration fee was going towards her campaign.

The event on Saturday was billed as a family fun run supporting Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal,’ but a spokesman later revealed it was a campaign fundraiser.

“The site says it’s to benefit her environmental plan,” said one supporter who would not give his name. “If it is going to go directly to her campaign they should have said so.”

Per Fox News

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez held a 5k in Queens Saturday that she billed as “a Family Fun Run supporting U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal on the Saturday following Earth Day.”

But many of the 400 runners didn’t realize their $30 registration fees were going directly into the lawmaker’s campaign coffers.

“We’re getting together for our own health, for our planet’s health … and to fight for the Green New Deal together,” the freshman Democrat told the participants before they set off.

Environmentally conscious supporters — who jogged through Astoria Park alongside a beaming, strolling AOC — believed their money was going to help save the planet.

“It’s going to help raise awareness and educate people,” a female runner told The Post.

“I think it’s really for this particular New Green Deal,” said Brian Schwartz of Long Island. “No question.”

Sorry, Brian but you got scammed.

The saddest part is that 99% of them don’t realize they were played for fools and the few who do know it, will justify it by saying Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t mean to make it that hard to figure out it was a donation directly to her campaign.

Twitter was not pleased,

 

She’s not just a con artist, she is a Democrat (is that redundant?)

AOC proves again that her Green New Deal was misnamed, it is a green new steal.
