Liberal superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “retracted erroneous information” surrounding her Green New Deal this week; with key staffers saying “mistakes happen” after posting an “unfinished fact sheet” regarding the proposal.

“Mistakes happen when doing time launches like this coordinating multiple groups and collaborators,” added the key staffer.
