HomeNews WireAOC Blasts Buttigieg for Being Funded by Billionaires, But Then Reality Strikes Editor December 26, 2019 Every Democrat has been jumping all over Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg lately after learning of his dealing with billionaires to raise funds for his campaign. It seems like the worst thing in the world to do is to accept “big money” donations. Why exactly I'm not sure…but, they are Democrats so it doesn't have to make sense. Bernie Sanders, a devout "Democratic Socialist", has always harped on the idea of taking money from “millionaires and billionaires”, even though he is one himself. He prefers a grassroots method of fundraising. So I guess that just means that everyone else must follow that ideology also. Even Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blasted Buttigieg for getting money from the super-rich, but she forgot to mention something…she received a donation from another Democratic presidential candidate, Tom Steyer, who happened to be a…you guess it, a billionaire! The Democrats are just full of hypocrisy! According to Fox News, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., criticized South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg over the weekend for holding a fundraiser at what has been called the "billionaire wine cave," but she wasn't exactly up front about the campaign contribution she received from billionaire Democratic donor and current 2020 candidate Tom Steyer. The freshman congresswoman railed against the one percent at a campaign rally for Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., over the weekend and took some not-so-veiled shots at the Indiana mayor over the fiery spat he had with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., at last week's Democratic debate. "For anyone who accuses us of instituting purity tests, it's called having values," Ocasio-Cortez told the Venice, Calif., crowd. "It's called giving a damn. It's called having standards for your conduct, to not be funded by billionaires but to be funded by the people, which is different." Remember the Democratic motto, "Do as we say, not as we do."
