New Report Shows AOC Skipped Out on Failed Business’ Bills and Taxes

But she has the cash to wear a $3,500 pantsuit for a photoshoot?

There may soon be a new “her” in the Trump rallying cry of “lock her up!”, and it certainly didn’t take a lifetime of political malfeasance to get there.

No, these latest calls for justice are not coming after a lengthy career in DC, grifting lobbyists and industry heads alike.  Instead, we are learning about the negligence of Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who could be on the hook for some hefty court-ordered restitution.The Democratic socialist congresswoman from the Bronx still hasn’t paid a 7-year-old tax bill left over from a failed business venture.

AOC had founded Brook Avenue Press, a publishing house that sought designers, artists and writers from urban areas to help paint the Bronx in a positive way in children’s stories, in 2012.

As the Post previously reported, public records show the state dissolved the company in October 2016. The state can make such a move when a business fails to pay corporate taxes or file a return.

The state Tax Department then filed a warrant against her now-defunct business on July 6, 2017, over a $1,618.36 unpaid bill.

And it isn’t getting any cheaper as AOC remains obstinate.

As of Friday, the tax warrant had still not been satisfied, and the outstanding balance had grown to $2,088.78, the department said.

Ocasio-Cortez had previously stirred controversy during her 2018 congressional campaign when she revisited her old “stoop” in a lower-class neighborhood of New York City for a photoshoot.  The publicity piece drew criticism after it was revealed that the pantsuit AOC posed for the photos in cost somewhere in the ballpark of $3,500.
