Ocasio-Cortez Returns Campaign Funds to ‘Catcallers’

(2018-08-11) — After accusing pundit Ben Shapiro of ‘catcalling’ when he offered her campaign $10,000 if she would sit down for an interview with him, New York Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez today announced she would return all campaign funds to any donor who expected her to do anything.

“Ben Shapiro catcalled me because he wants something,” said Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described Democratic-Socialist. “I suddenly realized that every campaign donor also wants something. They want me to sponsor legislation, to speak out, or even to win the election. They’re virtually hollering, ‘Hey, Baby, can I get some of that action?’. That’s simply unacceptable. This is my #MeToo moment, and I won’t be manipulated any more.”

Shapiro, a founder of The Daily Wire, shocked America when he posted a video to Twitter inviting Ocasio-Cortez to have a conversation about what she believes, or even a debate for charity if she prefers. The clearly-sexist effort to ‘mansplain’ his political ideology to a vulnerable woman, triggered a social media avalanche, which means that what he did was wrong and Shapiro should apologize.
