Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez bashes Uber but her campaign sure does seem to love to use the ride share service

Uh oh. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just stuck her foot in her mouth again.

A few months ago, she went on an anti-Uber tweet spree, blaming the unregulated rise in popularity of the company for the financial and personal woes of yellow cab drivers.

However, the candidate apparently doesn’t put her money where her mouth is.

FEC financial reports show that Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign spent $4,000 on Uber rides for campaign staff between April and June of this year. She tweeted her sentiments about the company BEFORE her staff used the service, so you’d think if she felt that strongly about helping out yellow cab companies, she’d tell her staff NOT to use the ride share service.

Reports also show that another ride share service called Juno was used and they spent over $2,000 there. Not seeing any yellow cab service listed on there, Alexandria.

Fox news reached out to her for comment, but received no response.
