AOC May Have Misled Twitter Followers About Her Charitable Giving

Democrat Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York may have misled twitter followers about her charitable giving.

AOC got into a tit-for-tat with the company's new owner, Elon Musk, claiming that proceeds from her campaign merchandise go to charity groups.

"Ocasio-Cortez had slammed Musk’s new plan for Twitter users to pay $8 a month for verification. In response, he drew attention to a sweatshirt from her campaign merchandise store, costing nearly $60," reported Fox.


"She said the items are made in the USA and 'all proceeds go to community organizing like our Homework Helpers program which gives private tutoring to kids who’ve needed learning support since COVID,'" reports Fox.

AOC, however, contradicted her own website because the site clearly states that "purchases are campaign contributions."

"Campaign finance data since July likewise make no mention of donations to charity organizations," reported Fox.

Later on in the spat with Musk, AOC said, "Also my Twitter mentions/notifications conveniently aren’t working tonight, so I was informed via text that I seem to have gotten under a certain billionaire’s skin."

AOC added, "Just a reminder that money will never by your way out of insecurity, folks." Following that tweet, the representative corrected her "by" typo with, "BUY*."
