AOC booted from a union-backed party due to a lack of signatures

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, has been booted from the ballot of the progressive union-backed Working Families Party by a judge from Queens. AOC only received 13 of the needed 15 signatures to get on the ballot for the left-wing group. One imagines that her grandstanding against Amazon which cost her constituents the prospect of 1,000s of jobs might be behind it.

Her main Democratic primary challenger, Michelle Caruso-Cabrera said, “AOC has hurt working people of the Bronx and Queens with her votes and creates disunity within our party…No wonder why pro-union forces don’t want her, and neither do our neighbourhoods.

Get woke, go broke?

We shouldn’t forget that she won the seat by a handsome margin. It would require a pretty severe swing to unseat her. Still, the one thing about politics is that history is rarely a guide to the future, especially in the time of coronavirus.
