Recently sworn-in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez found herself under increased scrutiny over the weekend after the New York Post revealed her campaign spent over $23,000 on “car services” during the 2018 midterm elections.
The revelation comes as Cortez is promoting her ‘Green New Deal,’ which calls for the elimination of cars, trucks, buses and other engine-based vehicles within the decade to clamp-down on climate change.
The ‘New Deal’ seeks to “totally overhaul transportation by massively expanding electric vehicle manufacturing, build charging stations everywhere, build out high-speed rail … create affordable public transit available to all, with goal to replace every combustion-engine vehicle.”
“Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign logged 1,049 car service transactions totaling over $23,000 between May 16, 2017, and Dec. 31, 2018, The Post found. Her campaign once booked 26 car-service transactions in a single day,” reports the New York Post.
