FTA: "To add insult to injury, the vendor hired to collect qualifying signatures to secure ballot access for the Republican Party nomination in the June 2020 Primary, violated New York State election laws."

Surely, market forces will take care of this without need for the dissatisfied customer petitioning the government for redress, right?

Her campaign said she faced "hurdles" including "a corrupt political establishment working to silence her."

Well, she's definitely a Republican.  "It's never my fault."

do any of these types of 'challengers' have anything to offer other than an insatiable need for attention?

Which one? Being a GOP challenger to AOC is the most basic b*tch GOP thing in 2020.

Murray suspended her campaign just days after she had filed a lawsuit against a contractor for allegedly making errors while tasked with getting signatures on Murray's behalf.

Her campaign said she faced "hurdles" including "a corrupt political establishment working to silence her."
"To add insult to injury, the vendor hired to collect qualifying signatures to secure ballot access for the Republican Party nomination in the June 2020 Primary, violated New York State election laws. The vendor was hired in good faith, yet ultimately prevented Murray from qualifying to be on the Republican Primary ballot for the June 2020 Primary," the campaign said in a statement.

The campaign said it is taking the case to court to ensure "no other candidate is likewise taken advantage of."

The federal lawsuit alleges, among other mistakes, that the vendor used a registered Democrat to be the "subscribing witness" for Murray's petition, which violates state law that requires the subscribing witness be a Republican in order to get on the GOP primary ballot, the New York Daily News reported.


If I'm reading this correctly, it sounds like she hired a company to illegally gather signatures on her behalf. Then somebody caught on, and she preemptively sued the contractor and threw them under the bus to give her campaign plausible deniability.

Undoubtedly he'll say it's simply a comment on "political reality" or something similar, not realizing that the two are one and the same. Things like "political reality" and "it is what it is" have always been, and remain, tools of the oppressor to justify the state of oppression.

I don't see AOC going away anytime soon, if at all. That girl is feisty, driven, intelligent, believes in equality and equity for all. She's also smart as a whip and doesn't take anyone's bullshiat. In all reality I think she's going to be one of the most powerful people in America in the next decade or so.

I wish Emma Gonzalez would run for Congress, AOC would be a great mentor for her.

Any normal human would characterize it as attacking. And in fact, pretty much everyone except you already has, regardless of which corner they took in the Pelosi-Cortez scuffles. If you want to call it by a different word that's fine, but Pelosi unquestionably went out of her way to single out Cortez and "the Squad" for things that she has never and would never single out any other congressional member for.

The offense by the contractor was having a registered Democrat sign the certification form for the signatures, where NY law requires someone registered as a Republican certify when collecting signatures for a GOP primary.

Such requirements help make it a little more difficult for one party to help Bozo The Clown run and win in the other party's primary.

Cortez hasn't changed who she is, how she speaks, or what she does since she got elected. The only difference between you thinking she's too loud and in-your-face, or you thinking she's been "shown her place" as a young woman who couldn't possibly govern anything other than a kitchen or a daycare center, is how and when the media chooses to cover her.
