AOC’s Opponent Had the Intel to Crush Her, Refused to Use It
Former Democratic Congressman Joe Crowley reportedly had the dirt that he could have buried his, then opponent, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with but chose not to go with it? In a report exposed by NY Post, Anna Palmer, an author with Politico explains:
Crowley, a longtime political power broker from Queens, was widely considered to be perfectly situated to become then-House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s successor before his stunning defeat last June that propelled the former waitress to the halls of Congress.
“Crowley had plenty of fodder he could’ve used against Ocasio-Cortez, but his top New York campaign operatives decided to take the punches and not hit back,” Politico reporters Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer write in their new book, “The Hill to Die On.”
“It wasn’t just that Crowley didn’t want to go dirty; he thought it would be a sign of weakness in D.C. if he was seen in a tight race against Ocasio-Cortez. He was supposed to be the next Democratic leader, not someone who had to fight for reelection,” the two write.
Daily Caller dug up that Crowley allegedly knew that Ocasio-Cortez was vulnerable on campaign financing laws and how she was raising money for her political ambition. A source told the two reporters that Crowley was way ahead of the news cycle and could have leveled some potentially damaging allegations against the former waitress-turned environmental activist politician.
The Ocasio-Cortez campaign may have been in violation of Federal Election Commission laws by transferring political donations through the Justice Democrats PAC that she may have controlled. Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti secured majority control of Justice Democrats PAC in December 2017, archived copies of the group’s website reveal, and it may have continued as an arm of her campaign, according to corporate filings obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
AOC still maintains she did nothing wrong but if any of this is found to be true the socialist sweetheart could face jail time.
