Is Congress conspiring to collect and use “dark money” for nefarious means? Sure, it might sound like a line from a suspense novel, but Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) would swear it’s as truthful as the Bible.
And worse yet, she thinks they should get a raise if she’s right.
Yep. Voting against cost of living increases for members of Congress may sound nice, but doing so only increases pressure on them to keep dark money loopholes open.
This makes campaign finance reform *harder.*
ALL workers deserve cost of living increases, incl min wage workers. https://t.co/fCdgHKx4G1

We all know these dark money loopholes are really just her attempt to distract, but let’s break down the logic here for a second. If she DID believe they were involved in dark money, wouldn’t paying them more of it be a bad idea?
Then again, she advocates for criminals half the time…so I guess that makes sense.
What do you think?
