Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

This is probably why freshman lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez grates on the good ol’ boys club in Congress. Watch this short but riveting video in which she uses a little game of Q & A to create a brutal takedown of Congress’ absurd campaign finance laws. This sharp-witted clarity revealing the ruse behind the shell-game of campaign finance, shows how venal politicians are using it to enrich themselves at the public’s expense. To be fair, there are many honest and conscientious legislators in Congress who are there to act as “public servants” as they were elected to do. But there are also way too many who use their office and their influence to shovel money into their own pockets. This video shows just how ridiculously easy it is to do.
