    No, I expect you to look it up yourself before making accusations. Well, you should. I expect you to twist and spin to avoid actually acknowledging anything like you always do. This isn't about you, it's about other people reading your post and making sure they think twice before taking anything on face value.

    Defeat PP wherever they rear their evil heads. They have already crossed the line into industrial murder for body parts.

    Interesting. So a non profit that depends on federal funds sets up a PAC to support political outcomes to...get more federal funds.

    Seems like there should be some sort of campaign finance reform to get rid of this.

    Link?
    I have not heard who or what was her real damage but as discussed earlier, when actual professors are advising cannibalism to fight global warming (link provided in this thread)? I'm not sure she wasn't for real. Let me know if you have links showing more about this loon. I am interested.

    already been discussed in an outer thread, research it, while you are researching it, sure you will find out the truth that it was a Trump supporter

    ""Trump supporter" who ranted about "eating babies" at AOC event is member of LaRouche fringe group"

    Your link does show a Tweet that reads a LaRouche account states that they trolled AOC. I hope we read more. Really not convinced yet but seems to make some sense.

    I can only assume that not ALL of the funds used for the PAC is tax payer money. The US is a JOKE country if it that's the case.

    Well PP is a tax payer funded organisation. Where else would they get the bulk of 45 million from?

    Were it that locked down, I'd see more stories about who she is. As it is, I do a search on "we must eat the babies" and I just get a bunch of links about what happened. Reviewing..
    A search does come up with a Breitbart article that notes AOC does not rule out the women may have been just a nut job.

    There are multiple separate organisations. The one that receives some tax payer funding provides healthcare services. The Super PAC will be legally and financially separate and will raise it's money via private donations, just like all other PACs do. Again, if you cared to put in a little bit of effort, you would know these simple facts. You can't morally make you definitive accusations if you're not willing to put in that basic bit of effort.

    This is the end of our conversation on the matter.

    I don't know that they directly use taxpayer funds to fund their PAC, but if they did, who would stop them?

    A rather absurd claim that presupposes money paid to PP for services rendered someone belongs to the government.
    They're not entitled to participate in the political process? Why? Because you don't like them?

    You're going to stop virtually all large corporations from getting involved in the political process? How when we have Citizens United?

    Do you think making up silly nonsense like that is a valid argument?

    My version of campaign finance reform would deny any corporate structure ( profit or non profit), from contributing to PACs or political parties/campaigns if they receive federal funds.

    In addition, any corporate structures that have contracts with the federal government should be prohibited from lobbying the government.

    None of this has to do with Citizens United. I'm convinced that progressives never read the case and have no idea what it's about.

    You just excluded nearly every major U.S. corporation.

    Not every corporation is a Federal government contractor or depends on federal funds.

    Why do they get public funding if they charge for services rendered?

    Did I say that they're not entitled to participate in the political process?

    Don't PAC's have to demonstrate how they're funded?
