Sounds like Socialist Democratic darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez helped her goddaughter to get into a public charter school.
You know, one of those evil rich people things.
Betsy DeVos called her out:
How nice that @AOC claims to have helped her goddaughter get into a public charter school. It’s a shame she works to deny that opportunity to every other disadvantaged family in America. “Good for me, but not for thee,” indeed. #EducationFreedomhttps://t.co/a2RhOEeU0o

Not a great look, AOC.
From the New York Post:
Good for me, but not for thee.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez managed to get her goddaughter into a Bronx charter school, according to a Facebook Live video she recorded in 2017 — before she was a public figure.
“This area’s like a lot of where my family is from,” AOC says as she strolls along Hunts Point Avenue in the Bronx. “My goddaughter, I got her into a charter school like maybe a block or two down.”
It’s unclear exactly how Ocasio-Cortez managed to finagle the favor for her goddaughter, or which school she attended. There are at least five — including South Bronx Classical Charter School I and Bronx Charter School for the Arts — within walking distance of the Hunts Point subway station where the video cuts out.
Reps for AOC did not immediately respond to request for comment.

Typical of a socialist. If she gets her way, she’ll be living like Bernie Sanders with three homes, nice vehicles, school choice, while the poverty is equally distributed among us peasants.

And her serfs … sorry, supporters … will defend her right to be super-wealthy just like Bernie.
Just another reason why socialism SUCKS.
