Ocasio-Cortez: Democratic Donors Should Stop Donating Money to the DCCC

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) on Saturday said that small-dollar Democratic donors should stop donating to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and give to swing candidates instead.

Ocasio-Cortez's criticism of the DCCC is in response to Rep. Cheri Bustos (D., Ill.), the new chairwoman of the DCCC, announcing a new policy earlier this month that attempts to protect incumbent Democrats from primary challengers. The new policy bans Democratic consultants from working with primary challengers if they want to continue doing business with DCCC.

Bustos argues that the new policy isn't specifically targeting progressives and that she isn't punishing consultants for their past work with incumbents, but progressives aren't convinced.

"The @DCCC’s new rule to blacklist+boycott anyone who does business w/ primary challengers is extremely divisive & harmful to the party," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. "My recommendation, if you’re a small-dollar donor: pause your donations to DCCC & give directly to swing candidates instead."

Why? The DCCC's only goal is to smear anyone who isn't a Democrat. It's an invaluable tool in AOC's propaganda campaign.
The enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my friend. It may just be that I have two enemies.
