Following the public catfight between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and a can’t-stop-mouthing-off Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez team over casually hurled claims of racism, Democrats aren’t about to just let the whole thing go and “try to do better” next time.
Apparently, the longtime machine pols of the outer boroughs of New York City are being activated. Jurassic Rep. Gregory Meeks, of Queens, an 11-term congressman, put Ocasio-Cortez on notice that she, too, could be in line to get primaried. She wants to play Robespierre on the Dems, she can wind up like him on the guillotine, too.
According to the New York Daily News:
Queens Democratic boss and 11-term congressman Greg Meeks took a thinly-veiled jab at fellow Big Apple Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Friday, urging her to back off her racially-tinged feud with party leaders or face a fight for her political life.
In an interview with the Daily News, Meeks fumed over Ocasio-Cortez’s recent racial beef with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and pushed back against her left-wing allies at Justice Democrats for openly backing insurgent candidates trying to unseat members of the Congressional Black Caucus.
He also said the CBC can play the same game.
