You may have noticed that the Democrats have drifted to the extreme left. If Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gets her way, this might be just the beginning. She is a key player in ‘Justice Democrats’ and that group wants the whole Democratic party to go far left.

OCASIO-CORTEZ AND TOP AIDE RUN OUTSIDE GROUP LEADING ‘WAR’ ON ESTABLISHMENT DEMOCRATS, DOCUMENTS SHOW
Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her top aide hold majority control over Justice Democrats, a left-wing PAC waging open war on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other establishment Democrats, according to corporate filings obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, obtained majority control of the political action committee in December 2017, TheDCNF reported Monday. Chakrabarti resigned from the Justice Democrats’ board in August 2018, Politico reported, and the PAC’s website no longer lists Ocasio-Cortez as a governor, but government documents show the two still hold majority control as of Wednesday afternoon.
Ocasio-Cortez’s role with the PAC, which was a driving force behind her stunning victory in 2018, may have violated campaign finance laws, two former Federal Election Commission (FEC) members told TheDCNF.
These folks often complain about money in politics, which is funny when you read other allegations against them.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
AOC Spox Simultaneously Collected Salary From Campaign and Justice Democrats
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s spokesperson collected nearly $20,000 in overlapping salary payments from the New York Democrat’s campaign committee and the Justice Democrats political action committee over a two-month span last year, filings to the Federal Election Commission show.
Corbin Trent, Ocasio-Cortez’s communications director in her Washington, D.C. office, was a leader of the Justice Democrats, the far-left group behind the freshman Democrat’s sharp political rise and surprise upset victory over seasoned Democratic representative Joseph Crowley.
As Trent was acting as a spokesperson for Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign last year, he was receiving a salary from the Justice Democrats PAC. Between September 9, 2017 and October 15, 2018, $73,000 in salary disbursements were paid to Trent from the group’s PAC.
This is not your father’s Democrat party.
These people make JFK look like a hardline conservative.
