Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez 'Grifted' $5.3 Million in 2019 for Race in Non-Competitive District

Birds gotta fly, fish gotta swim, and grifters gotta grift.

And Sandy from Westchester, who invented a poor background, is the embodiment of politically correct grifting. She's running for reelection in a Latino/Hipster district where no Democrat with a pulse is likely to lose to a Republican. But she's still collecting millions she doesn't need.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez raised nearly $2 million over the final three months of last year, according to the star House freshman's campaign.

Ocasio-Cortez’s sizable cash haul — $1.97 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 and over $5.3 million for the entire year — is one of the largest revealed so far among members of Congress, and the size of her fundraising base will likely stoke speculation about the New Yorker's ambitions.

She is expected to report entering 2020 with $3 million cash on hand, according to her campaign, even though she is running for reelection in an overwhelmingly blue district. But POLITICO recently reported that whispers have already started about a presidential run for the 30-year-old, and there’s also talk of a potential Senate run in 2022 or 2024.

Either one would be a bad joke. But not impossible.

Meanwhile though the money keeps rolling in. And so does the good life.
