WATCH: AOC BUSTED Tricking “Fun Run” Participants Into Donating to Her Campaign

by Paul Goldberg

The joke was on supporters of AOC who thought they were attending her “fun run” event to support the “Green New Deal.”

Many of them were duped and had no clue they were actually donating to her campaign instead.

AOC was busted on camera with the charade and practically “ran away” refusing to answer any questions.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez held a 5k in Queens Saturday that she billed as “a Family Fun Run supporting U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal on the Saturday following Earth Day.”

But many of the 400 runners didn’t realize their $30 registration fees were going directly into the lawmaker’s campaign coffers.

“We’re getting together for our own health, for our planet’s health … and to fight for the Green New Deal together,” the freshman Democrat told the participants before they set off.

Environmentally conscious supporters — who jogged through Astoria Park alongside a beaming, strolling AOC — believed their money was going to help save the planet.

“It’s going to help raise awareness and educate people,” a female runner told The Post.

“I think it’s really for this particular New Green Deal,” said Brian Schwartz of Long Island. “No question.”

“It’s to help the environment. To support the Green New Deal,” another woman said. “It’s a good cause.”

A vaguely worded notices on AOC’s Facebook page — saying that the run would support “U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez & the Green New Deal” — worsened the confusion.

But the fine print on a third event-related website revealed the truth.

“Registration fees are contributions to AOC for Congress,” reads the legal disclosure on aoc5k.com, which lists the Federal Election Commission rules that donors must follow.

The registration fees should be used for exile/relocation of AOC to Venezuela or Cuba.

What a terrible person! I hope she is forced to pay back the people she tricked into giving her money for her campaign.

She is horrible, and no way is she going to be forced to pay them back, but she should. The House Ethics committee needs to address this right now!
