“AOC is calling out Nancy Pelosi’s corruption and hypocrisy.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) hit the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) on Thursday over its policy to blacklist firms that work with candidates challenging Democratic incumbents in primaries.
Her criticism came a short time after Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) endorsed Rep. Joe Kennedy III’s (D-Mass.) Senate bid.
The policy, announced by the Democratic campaign arm earlier this year, blacklists any consulting firms that choose to work with primary challengers. The DCCC at the time told The Hill that the policy is meant to protect incumbents from outside challenges.
