Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who used to pose as a bartender before posing as a politician “for the people,” and who was outraged that nobody including her was helping her poor abuela, took her common touch but not her mask to the Met Gala the other day so she could hobnob with the rich and famous and their expensive clothing and jewelry, and did so while wearing a small fortune of a dress that said “tax the rich” on it as if she were AWARE of the irony instead of just exploiting the spotlight to hang out with the upper crust.
Well THAT dress is itself a hypocrisy, because the very fancy designer of that very fancy dress that says to tax the rich in keeping with the supposed AOC message of everyone paying their fair share has not paid HER fair share. Yeah she SAYS tax the rich, but is dodging TAX on HER riches.
It’s in multiple states to boot. So she’s a border crossing evader. From the New York Post:
The 37-year-old fashionista who made waves at the Met Gala with Democratic-Socialist AOC last week is a notorious tax deadbeat with unpaid debts dogging her in multiple states, records show.
Most of luxe-living James’ arrears center on Cultural Brokerage Agency, an LLC she formed in 2011 to serve as the parent company of her fashion brand, which today is known as Brother Vellies. It’s a favorite of people like Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Meghan Markle.
The company racked up three open tax warrants in New York state for failing to withhold income taxes from employees’ paychecks totaling $14,798, the state Department of Taxation and Finance told The Post. The debts — which were incurred before the pandemic — stem from 2018 and 2019. The company has been hit with 15 warrants in total since 2015.
The company got into a deeper hole with the feds. Between April 2018 and April 2019, the Internal Revenue Service placed six federal liens on Cultural Brokerage Agency totaling $103,220. The liens specifically cite the company’s failure to remit employee payroll taxes.
The IRS declined to comment on their current status.
Just awesome. Exactly perfect. This is exactly how everything they all do is all the time. This is what being a Democrat means.
