Alexandra Rojas, executive director of “Justice Democrats” said that in 2016 the organization put “out a call for nominations. We got over 10,000 nominations. Out of those 10,000 nominations, we found Alexandria.”
He’s referring to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), who was a bartender at the time, and was propped up to run for Congress.
The Justice Democrats held auditions for potential congressional candidates across the U.S.– not just in New York. AOC’s brother, Gabriel, submitted her name to the organization to be considered.
“My brother told me that he had sent my nomination in the summer, but I was literally working out of a restaurant. I was like, no way!” Ocasio says on the video, talking to her now chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, who is being investigated fraud by the FEC. Chakrabarti allegedly funneled over $1 million in political donations into two of his own private companies.
Also in the video is the brains behind the entire operation: Corbin Trent, a Saul Alinsky disciple, or AOC’s “puppet master.”
