Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez vigorously defended her role in sinking Amazon's move to New York City on Tuesday in the face of bipartisan criticism, claiming the deal would have been "one of the biggest giveaways in state history" and would have priced people out of the local community.
"Amazon Pullout, Thanks for Nothing, AOC", the billboard, located on 42nd street near 8th Avenue, reads.
Congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez is facing ethics questions after being accused of secretly using PAC money to fund her campaign. "(PS fact that it's in Times Sq tells you this isn't for/by NYers.)", tweeted Cortez.
After Amazon made a decision to back out of their second headquarters in Long Island City, Job Creators Network posted a billboard in Times Square, New York calling out Democratic Rep.
Macron unveils measures to tackle 'worst anti-Semitism since WWII'
During World War II, the French Vichy government collaborated with Germany notably in the deportation of Jews to death camps. Macron had received praise from President Reuven Rivlin earlier in the day for his stance on anti-Semitism in France.
Foldable 'Huawei Mate X' with 5G leaked ahead of MWC 2019

LGBT Magazine Accuses Trump Of Racism Over International Gay Rights Campaign
As The Jerusalem Post noted, "Iran's radical sharia law system prescribes the death penalty for gay sex". He is slated to head the White House's campaign to decriminalize homosexuality in dozens of countries.
After Fox News reached out to the Job Creators Network for comment on Ocasio-Cortez's tweets, the Wikipedia page was subsequently edited again and it now includes the line that was in the NY congresswoman's tweet: "It is funded mainly by corporate executives and conservative foundations including the Mercer Family Foundation". Amazon had planned to build a campus in Queens that was expected to create jobs for around 25,000 people, while receiving up to $3 billion in tax breaks and subsidies. Protests against Amazon popped up in opposition to the deal.
Whether Ocasio-Cortez's grievances are justified is questionable. "We could hire out more teachers".
Ocasio-Cortez then doubled down by invoking a scene from The Office in her takedown of the billboard. There is no report that says Ocasio-Cortez was notified of these charges before the story broke out late last night.
"Today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon's corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world", she tweeted on February 14.
