Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is once again at the center of a Democrat Party civil war.
The drama and controversy never seems to end.
Now Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez exploded over what this fellow Democrat just said about her.
Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Sean Patrick Maloney became the first Party campaign chief to lose re-election since 1992.
The New York State Supreme Court throwing out the Democrats’ unconstitutional gerrymander forced Maloney to run in a new district.
In the Primary, Maloney defeated fellow Democrat incumbent – and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ally – Mondaire Jones.
But after Maloney lost to Republican Mike Lawler – one of four House seats in New York that the GOP flipped – he blamed Ocasio-Cortez for Democrats losing big in the Empire State.
Maloney claimed Ocasio-Cortez did nothing to help other New York Democrats running for re-election out of spite over him defeating her fellow “Squad” member in a Primary.
“The last time I ran into AOC, we were beating her endorsed candidate two to one in a Primary, and I didn’t see her one minute of these Midterms helping our House majority,” Maloney stated.
That comment enraged Ocasio-Cortez.
Ocasio-Cortez listed the donations she made to the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee, her campaign trips, as well as the field organization she ran to help turn out the vote.
“Let’s make something crystal clear: SPM [Maloney] courted me for donations to swing races & it was the 1st thing I did this term. Over a quarter million for Dems this cycle, DCCC facilitated some & now he denies it. If he isn’t aware of my visit to CA & efforts we put in, that’s on him,” Ocasio-Cortez posted on Twitter. “Because of Dem party abandonment in key areas, statewide victories depended HEAVILY on driving up numbers in progressive areas like mine & @nywfp.”
“To our knowledge, I was the only NYC House Dem in a safe seat to run a full-throated heavy field operation for GOTV,” Ocasio-Cortez added.
Ocasio-Cortez then cast Maloney as an out of touch elitist who ignored her constituency.
“As for him ‘not seeing me’… perhaps it’s because he as a party leader chose not to see nor value prominent members of his party for years. Either way, we will continue to organize & turn out undervalued + unseen communities in this country – whether the powerful like it or not,” Ocasio-Cortez continued.
Finally, Ocasio-Cortez blasted Maloney for not taking responsibility for his defeat.
“Lastly, many moderate dems + leaders made it very clear that our help was not welcome nor wanted. Despite our many, many offers. Yet found ways to try to help from afar. So for them to blame us for respecting their approach in their districts is laughable. Take some ownership,” Ocasio-Cortez concluded.
