The Democrats took another massive hit to their 2022 prospects.
This time one of the party’s biggest stars inflicted the damage.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wrecked Chuck Schumer with one devastating letter.
If Chuck Schumer wants to remain Senate majority leader in 2023, Democrats have to win the Wisconsin Senate race.
Thanks to the antics of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and left-wing prosecutors, that task became much more difficult.
Police took 39-year-old career criminal Darrell Brooks into custody on suspicion of killing five people and wounding 40 after Brooks allegedly plowed his SUV into a crowd attending a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
A George Soros-backed district attorney named John Chisholm supervised the office that allowed Brooks back onto the streets by posting a measly $1,000 bail after police arrested Brooks on charges that Brooks ran over a woman with his car.
Chisholm is one of many Soros-funded district attorneys that worked to eliminate or greatly reduce cash bail which turned prisons into revolving doors allowing violent criminals to receive get-out-of-jail-free cards.
Turning violent criminals loose is the goal as left-wing activists like Chisholm want to dismantle the American criminal justice system in the name of fighting “racism.”
“Is there going to be an individual I divert, or I put into [a] treatment program, who’s going to go out and kill somebody? You bet. Guaranteed,” Chisholm told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in 2007.
The day after Brooks allegedly murdered five people because a Soros-backed prosecutor opposed cash bail, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dispatched a letter to the district attorney of each of New York City’s five boroughs demanding an end to cash bail.
“More than 75% of individuals in custody haven’t been convicted of a crime, and are confined in unsafe conditions simply because they cannot afford cash bail. Condemning thousands of individuals to languish in such environments as they await trial is unacceptable,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow Democrats complained about a humanitarian crisis from keeping dangerous criminals in jail prior to their trials.
There was no mention of the dangerous effects of ending cash bail such as allowing Darrell Brooks back out onto the streets where he allegedly killed five innocents.
“We have grave concerns that excessive bail amounts are leading to unnecessary pretrial detention and contributing to a humanitarian crisis in New York City’s jail system, particularly on Riker’s Island. 14 people have died this year in the custody of New York City Department of Corrections,” the letter read.
Ocasio-Cortez threatened the DAs that unless they emptied the prisons Democrats in Congress or the White House may step in and impose a jail break policy to free inmates that couldn’t make bail.
“Condemning thousands of individuals to languish in an environment plagued by persistent overcrowding and mounting violence as they await trial is not acceptable, and risks violating the federal civil rights of these individuals. If these conditions are not addressed, federal intervention may be necessary to protect detainees from additional harm,” the letter added.
In 2020 Ocasio-Cortez helped cost the Democrats every toss-up race in the House of Representatives by allowing Republicans to brand Democrats as the party of defunding the police.
Ocasio-Cortez demanding an end to cash bail when a left-wing prosecutor allegedly allowed an act of domestic terrorism to take place because of opposition to cash bail hands the GOP a golden opportunity to define Democrats across the board in 2022 as soft on crime.
And since Republicans only need to win one seat to win back control of the Senate – and most of the toss-up races are in red states – Ocasio-Cortez’s letter could be the final nail in the coffin for Chuck Schumer’s time calling the shots in the Senate.
