This Guy Lied About AOC’s Credit Score And Got Fact Checked Hard

Some guy who admits in his Twitter bio that he “signed contracts with Goldman Sachs” and other bankers got noticed for spreading an increasingly common lie about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s credit score and (non-existent) eviction history. The claim, which has already been labeled false by Snopes, is that Ocasio-Cortez has a credit score of 430 and has been evicted twice. There is no evidence to support this claim, but it’s one of those things that people repeat over and over like it’s fact until people believe it.

“We encountered several dozen accounts spreading this rumor, yet not a single one pointed to any sort of news report, interview, financial record, witness statements, or anything else even slightly resembling evidence,” says Snopes.

“Johnson claimed that Ocasio-Cortez had been evicted from her home twice with the help of a sheriff’s office. We did a background check on the congresswoman and found no mention of such an incident, no court cases tied to her living arrangements, and no irregularities in her housing history.”

This former banker appears to be suggesting that former poverty should disqualify Ocasio-Cortez from having anything to say about money or from attempting to save both the precarious U.S. economy and humanity from climate catastrophe. The part about her resume is, obviously, also false, but also hilarious considering the fact that our current President was elected largely on the idea that electing someone with zero political experience is somehow a good thing.

This is also the same guy who spread that obviously fake BuzzFeed article about smiling being a white supremacist symbol.

With all that in mind, Twitter users had something to say to Mr. LeFevre. Those who didn’t send him the Snopes article pointed out that having someone in Congress who actually understands what poverty is like could be seen as a positive thing.

Others have pointed out all the many ways in which this dude would be better off turning his tweets upon the actual President and other powerful rich men.

Then, of course, there are those who are concerned about LeFevre’s mental state.

The burn unit will be working overtime on this one.
