Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t have enough money to help her “Abuela” rebuild her home in Puerto Rico but she definitely has $1.4 million dollars to invest in a clothing line for herself.
To make things more outrageous, she used campaign funds to do it!
Daily Wire reports on this hilariously awful move by AOC.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in another move to make herself ubiquitous, paid a political merchandise firm a whopping $1.4 million from her campaign coffers just in the first six months of 2021 to create T-shirts and hats with leftist slogans such as “Tax the Rich” and “Abolish ICE” — much of the merchandise featuring her initials.
What is insane about this is that most of the money she invested doesn’t go into manufacturing the clothing, it’s what she has paid a design firm to develop the concepts and branding.
Only a small fraction goes into paying workers in third-world countries to make these t-shirts.
