'SociaLOLism'! Looks like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has THOUSANDS of dollars' worth of 'splaining to do

If Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t already exist, we’d have to invent her.



Here’s what she tweeted this past March (via Reason):

More from Reason:

Despite the Twitter comment, campaign spending reports from the Federal Election Commission indicate that her words only go so far. Fox News found that the Ocasio-Cortez campaign not only spent thousands on Uber rides, but also on a local ride-sharing service called Juno, between the months of April and June. The campaign spent nearly $4,000 on 160 Uber rides and $2,500 on over 90 Juno rides. Spending reports from July and August are not yet available.

Ocasio-Cortez is certainly not the first politician to criticize “unregulated” ride-sharing companies in public while benefiting from their cheaper services. While running in the most recent Democratic presidential primary, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I–Vt.) criticized Uber for being an “”unregulated” company with “serious problems.” He was also one of the handful of presidential candidates whose campaign reported using Uber instead of taxis close to 100 percent of the time. Eventual Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee were the only two presidential candidates whose campaigns could boast spending more on taxis than on Uber.



Ain’t that just the way it goes?

At the very least, she’ll be in good company once she’s elected.
