In a string of tweets Friday night, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez argued that “the right thing” for the anti-Trump Lincoln Project would be to donate “a lot” of its money to “people who actually made a big difference.”
And if the group has already spent its fundraising proceeds, she said it should just raise more to give away.
“There’s potential incentive bc @ProjectLincoln is def in scam territory w these results,” she tweeted. “It’s a pretty bad rep even tho GOP has a thing for failing up. Come clean, say ‘listen, we thought it’d work, it didn’t, & in good faith we’re gonna raise X mil for these ppl who deserve it.’”
She also questioned how many Republican voters the group’s ads, which included billboards in heavily Democratic New York City, had actually persuaded.
