An Alinsky Rule 5 Post 44: Sources with knowledge of a staff shake-up underway in the office of Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez report that, by June 1, 2019, Carlos Danger (AKA Anthony David Weiner), former Democratic Congressman representing New York’s 9th congressional district from January 1999-June 2011, may join the campaign staff of the recently elected Democrat Congresswoman of New York’s 14th district, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC).
AOC has, since her victory last November, become a rising star in the Democrat Party’s constellation of new, young, far left – some say Socialist – lawmakers in the U.S. House of Representatives. Her D.C. Office has recently gained media attention for assigning AOC’s boyfriend, Riley Roberts, a mail.house.gov email address.
An anonymous source inside AOC’s House staff stated, on deep background, that Roberts is an unpaid consultant to AOC, for the time being.
Meanwhile, Danger Weiner is being strongly considered for the paid position of Twit Master on AOC’s re-election campaign that has already commenced with fund-raising for the 2020 election. His experience with social media and NY politics is seen as a plus.
If hired, Danger will be commuting to AOC’s D.C. 2020 Campaign Office from a halfway house in Brooklyn, NY.
According to NBC4TV Columbus, Ohio, “The Federal Bureau of Prisons reported that Weiner has been moved from a federal prison in Massachusetts to a halfway house in Brooklyn, New York. In May 2017, Weiner pleaded guilty to one charge of transferring obscene material to a minor and was sentenced to 21 months in federal prison but is being released early for good conduct. According to the Bureau of Prisons, Weiner is now scheduled to be released on May 14.”
An unidentified consultant to the AOC Campaign noted that AOC (right below) resembles Danger’s ex-wife Huma Abedin (left below) in appearance.
It is unclear who initiated the contact between Danger and AOC, but some speculate that it came as a recommendation from Roberts.
