Embattled Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on the Democrats’ recent string of anti-Israeli conspiracy theories Thursday afternoon; releasing a fundraising email that accused AIPAC of “coming after” Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.
“It’s official – AIPAC is coming after Alexandria, Ilhan, and Rashida,” writes the email. “Rashida, Ilhan, and Alexandria have at times dared to question our foreign policy, and the influence of money in our political system. And now, lobbying groups across the board are working to punish them for it.”

“In this administration and all others, there should be no special relationship or status. We should actively check anti-Semitism, anti-blackness, homophobia, racism, and all other forms of bigotry,” adds the email.
