Washington, D.C. – The Lincoln Project is “def in scam territory,” as Congresswoman and Acting U.S. Senator Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (Socialist-NY) put it is the understatement of the year. One can only wonder if she is aware that the Lincoln Project’s largest donor was Chuck Schumer’s pet Super PACs.
Of the $90 million that the troubled Lincoln Project raised with the help of Chuck Schumer, Senate Majority PAC, and Majority Forward (and their donors), only $27 million went toward advertising. The rest enriched their founders…and helped buy some pretty cool stuff!
As of now, neither AOC nor Schumer have been asked about Schumer’s decision to send big Democrat donors’ money to former Republicans with questionable track records. Even worse, Schumer has yet to ask for his money back!
Statement from NRSC Spokesman T.W. Arrighi: “The Lincoln Project is and always has been a colossal waste of money. Even before it was clear the founders helped protect a sexual predator and cover up his abuses, the founders were former Republicans who were despised by actual Democrats. But Senator Chuck Schumer sent $2 million into their pockets anyway. We have little doubt this information sits poorly with Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez, who’s made clear her disdain for the infamous PAC. The question is: will she demand an answer from Schumer now or wait until primary season draws closer?”
