Dog days: PETA faults Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for buying purebred pup

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez angered her fellow Democrats by announcing that she would not pay fees to the Democratic Congress Campaign Committee, which is committed to electing Democrats into the house.

According to records, she has not paid her $ 250,000 contributions so far, despite using her massive social media to raise millions for her own reelection, Fox News reported.

Newkirk went on to urge the young Democrat leader to visit any NYC Animal Care & Control center and adopt a shelter dog to give her new French Bull Dog a companion, especially when she is away on business. Her fundraising was done with zero call time, the campaign said.

"Look, she has a lot of followers", Bustos replied.

In a letter to her Democratic colleagues, Pelosi said she was proud of their "courage and patriotism" and warned that senators now have a choice as they consider the charges of abuse and obstruction against the president.

"It's interesting, I have the chairwoman of the DCCC whose job it is to support incumbents and Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez is one". "I'm asking you just a straightforward question: Is she good for the Democratic caucus in the House?"

"Even people my age are stressed and have anxiety about having kids just because we want to make sure we are bringing our kids into a healthy world, into a stable future, and we shouldn't ever have to be anxious about that", she explained.

"Senate Democrats are ready for the trial to begin and will do everything we can to see that the truth comes out", Schumer said. My politics are somewhat different than hers, but she brings a voice that's welcome. "And I have great appreciation for that".

AOC raised an unprecedented $1.42 million in the third quarter of 2019 - and had an eye-popping $1.9 million in cash on hand as of September 30, according to the Federal Election Commission.

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, meanwhile, has declared she will raise her new dog as "a community pup", noting on Twitter that she hoped to train the little guy to come to work, "enjoy townhalls" and ride Amtrak when he commutes from NY to the nation's capital.

"I also believe that a Dem majority should be transformative, which is why I give strategically", she added.

"I'm a former reporter, Victor, so I understand what you're trying to get at", Bustos said.

"I want to help front members by putting the money directly in my pocket", said Ocasio-Cortez.
