Democratic-Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to confuse users on social media Thursday evening; posting a bizarre conspiracy theory concerning “AstroTurf” and “dark money.”

“Heads up – I’m deleting a tweet about astroturfing bc I want to make sure details are solid. Dark $ is hard to track, & the practice of astroturfing to manipulate public opinion is notorious. Want to make sure any comments about it are thorough,” she posted.

Cortez’ comments come after days of fierce criticism over her handling of the botched Amazon deal; with enraged New Yorkers erecting an anti-AOC billboard in the heart of Times Square.
