AOC Disguises ‘Fun Run’ for ‘Green New Deal’ As Campaign Fundraising Event, Tricking Participants

Many participants did not know that their Fun Run registrations were actually donations to AOC’s campaign slush fund.

A freshman Congresswoman from New York is facing scrutiny after hosting a “Fun Run” after some participants were unaware that their donations were actually campaign contributions.

“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,'” according to The New York Post. 

Many of the 400 participants, the report said, did not know that the $30 registration fee for the run was actually a donation to the Congresswoman’s campaign fund.

A vaguely worded notices on AOC’s Facebook page — saying that the run would support “U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez & the Green New Deal” — worsened the confusion.

But the fine print on a third event-related website revealed the truth.

“Registration fees are contributions to AOC for Congress,” reads the legal disclosure on aoc5k.com, which lists the Federal Election Commission rules that donors must follow.

Ocasio-Cortez’s spokesman, Corbin Trent, confirmed that the run was a fundraising event.

At least one participant voiced his concern over the lack of transparency from the Congresswoman’s office.

“The site says it’s to benefit her environmental plan,” one participant reportedly said. “If it is going to go directly to her campaign they should have said so.”

Furthermore, some parents registered their children, thus contributing to the Congresswoman’s campaign under their children’s names – a potential violation of campaign finance law.

The young House Rep has had some serious run-ins with campaign finance rules already in her short tenure in Congress. She was accused of paying her boyfriend Riley Roberts out of her campaign coffers, and a March Federal Elections Commission complaint alleges that her campaign moved nearly $1 million “off the books.”

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody Orders Investigation Into Mike Bloomberg’s Felon Voting Bribery Scheme

The oligarch may be held accountable.

Published

on

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody has ordered an investigation into what appears to be a bribery voting scheme organized by Democrat oligarch Mike Bloomberg. Moody ordered the investigation after Governor Ron DeSantis requested it, following Congressman Matt Gaetz in questioning the legality of his felon voting scheme.

Bloomberg is personally paying off the outstanding fines of black and Hispanic felons in order to restore their voting rights in Florida before the November election. Florida prevents felons with outstanding fines from voting, and those responsible for criminal acts are nominally supposed to pay the fines incurred from their crimes- not an out-of-state billionaire.

Bloomberg is also nakedly racially discriminating in his felon voting scheme, reserving the fine repayment for black and Hispanic felons, only.

In her letter on the matter, AG Moody requests that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigate the scheme, as well as the FBI(as if they’d actually do anything.)

The Democrat oligarch could potentially face felony charges pertaining to obstruction of justice for paying fines that convicted felons are supposed to be responsible for, and election fraud for what seems to be bribing nominally eligible voters to tacitly support the Democrat candidate. The bribery charges could potentially make Bloomberg liable for federal criminal charges.

Florida passed a felon re-enfranchisement referendum in 2018, changing previous state law that barred felons from voting. They still have to pay off outstanding fines to utilize the right. The swing state has been trending red, but it remains a competitive must-win state for President Trump in November.
