If you look up the word ‘hypocrite’ in the dictionary, there should be a picture of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Ever since she was elected, the socialist darling has spent most of her time railing against the excesses of wealthy Americans and how she claims they manipulate the tax system.
Well, wouldn’t you know it… it turns out the AOC is the one who is manipulating the tax system for HER own benefit.
According to a report from The New York Post, Ocasio-Cortez has yet to pay a seven-year-old tax bill related to a failed business venture.
You read that correctly… SEVEN YEARS!
According to the report, Ocasio-Cortez owes $2,088.78 in unpaid corporate taxes for Brook Avenue Press, a publishing house she founded in 2012.
The company aimed to help develop and identify stories and literature in urban areas, specifically in communities like the Bronx.
AOC’s team says the tax bill was issued in “error.” (Of course they would say that)
“The congresswoman is still in the process of contesting the tax warrant. The business has been closed for several years now, and so we believe that the state Tax Department has continued to collect the franchise tax in error,” said AOC spokeswoman Lauren Hitt.
After pulling off a stunning upset in 2018, AOC is now facing 13 challengers as she prepares for her first reelection bid.
AOC is piling in a ton of cash to support her reelection bid. According to Newsmax, she raised $5.3 million last year, one of the largest figures among members of Congress, and another $2.7 million in January, February, and March of this year.
But if her shady tax history is any indication, perhaps someone might want to look at this figures to make sure they are legit!
