Justice Democrats, a far-left political group associated with the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wing of the Democratic Party, has quietly formed a super PAC. The move opens the big-money floodgates for a group that routinely lambasts the "power of large corporations, billionaires, and wealthy campaign contributions in our democracy."
“This committee intends to establish a second bank account to deposit and withdraw funds raised in unlimited amounts from individuals, corporations, labor organizations, and/or political committees,” Natalie Trent, treasurer of the Justice Democrats PAC, wrote in a letter to the FEC. “The funds maintained in this account will not be used to make contributions, whether direct, in-kind, or via coordinated communications, or coordinated expenditures, to federal candidates or committees.”

The Justice Democrats PAC amended its organizational filing today to become a hybrid PAC--its new independent expenditure arm will be able to raise money without being subject to federal contribution limits. https://t.co/ZFhtOH7WW4 pic.twitter.com/0gBcG1mvgy— Rob Pyers (@rpyers) May 1, 2020

Now try to convince me how the "reform the Democratic Party strategy" is definitely working.

Progressivism is obviously just a trendy career to these people. https://t.co/vMFjHRrcTt
Notice how AOC, Pramila and others haven’t made a peep about Justice Democrats filing for a Super PAC. Where is the condemnation and outrage?— Richard Medhurst🌹🇸🇾🇵🇸 (@papichulomin) May 5, 2020
Jimmy says (timestamp 7:28) what I've been saying since day zero, "The Justice Democrats are exactly what they say, they're Fucking Democrats."— No More Donations (@NoMoreDon8) May 4, 2020
