There is a ticking time bomb hovering over the career of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Secrets from her past could destroy her career at any moment.
And you won’t believe who is sitting on the smoking gun that will end Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s career.
Last summer, Ocasio-Cortez became a household name when she defeated ten-term incumbent Joe Crowley in a Democrat primary.
Her victory was one of the biggest upsets in American political history.
Not only was Crowley a ten-term incumbent and the fourth-ranking Democrat in the House, but many observers also pegged Crowley as a possible successor to Nancy Pelosi.
But that all got flushed down the drain when Ocasio-Cortez stunned Crowley in the primary contest.
However, Ocasio-Cortez’s victory almost never came to be.
And even in her victory, the seeds were sown for her eventual defeat should she seek higher office.
That’s because according to a new bombshell book, “The Hill to Die On,” written by Politico reporters Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer, Crowley was sitting on the motherload of dirt on Ocasio-Cortez.
But he inexplicably refused to unleash it upon his challenger feeling it would make him look weak.
The New York Post – which obtained an advanced copy of the book reported:
“Crowley had plenty of fodder he could’ve used against Ocasio-Cortez, but his top New York campaign operatives decided to take the punches and not hit back,” Politico reporters Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer write in their new book, “The Hill to Die On.”
“It wasn’t just that Crowley didn’t want to go dirty; he thought it would be a sign of weakness in D.C. if he was seen in a tight race against Ocasio-Cortez. He was supposed to be the next Democratic leader, not someone who had to fight for reelection,” the two write.
Crowley took the wrong lesson from then-House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and his stunning defeat at the hands of conservative challenger Dave Brat back in the 2014 primary.
Cantor – a liberal RINO who is still the highest-ranking member of the House to ever lose a primary – spent hundreds of thousands of dollars attacking Brat.
Brat later credited those attack ads with raising his name recognition and letting the conservative grassroots know Cantor had a legitimate Tea Party challenger.
Crowley sat on the illegal – and possibly criminal – schemes that Ocasio-Cortez took part in regarding a PAC her now chief of staff had set up to support her campaign.
The details of this shady arrangement are now leaking out and Ocasio-Cortez is facing a 21-count complaint with the Federal Election Commission.
While Ocasio-Cortez dodged this bullet during the primary, it’s a sure bet that an opponent in a future race will bombard her with attack ads about her corrupt dealings.
If Ocasio-Cortez ever seeks higher office, this scandal could be the smoking gun that ends her career.
