Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and the 15 other Democratic lawmakers who were arrested Tuesday outside the Supreme Court coordinated the stunt with a progressive dark money group funded by billionaire George Soros.
Getting arrested was the whole point of the stunt, Ocasio-Cortez said in an Instagram post on Tuesday. She said organizers of the Center for Popular Democracy Action Fund asked her and her colleagues to "submit themselves for arrest in front of the Supreme Court."
The New York lawmaker insisted in the post what she and her colleagues did was "very different than a 'publicity stunt.'"
Omar spokesman Jeremy Slevin tweeted about 30 minutes before the lawmakers hit the street that a film crew with the dark money group would be on the scene live streaming the event.
"Members of Congress, including [Omar] will be participating in a civil disobedience at the Supreme Court, potentially including arrests, shortly," Slevin tweeted before the lawmakers began illegally obstructing the street outside the Supreme Court. "@CPDAction is live streaming it. Follow along!"

Andrew Friedman, the co-executive director of CPD Action, told the Washington Post in 2018 that the group and its sister organization, Center for Popular Democracy, receive over $1 million a year from Soros's Open Society Foundations.
As a 501(c)(4) nonprofit group, CPD Action isn't required to disclose the identity of its donors.

Ilhan Nur Said Elmi (her real name) should be stripped of her fraudulently acquired citizenship and deported back to her beloved Somalia.
At first glance I saw aoc, omar monkey pox.
To the DEMs, the message *always* takes priority over the methods.
If the cuffs were imaginary, were the police real? I’m not counting out the possibility that they hired actors.
Soros runs the Democrat Party.
The old Nazi sure keeps busy.
I recommend that next time they should be shot with tasers. That might make them think twice before another LARP outing.
These are the same phony assed bitches you knew in high school. And these two still act like it.
What a cunning stunt.
Soros, Schwab...Nazi’s and the children of Nazi’s seem to be running the world.
I thought it was the CCP. What do I know!
Soros won’t spend his own money.

Lots of cutouts to protect those higher up.
Voting them into Congress was also a “stunt”.
I saw what you did there and it’s hilarious!
Wouldn’t it be neat if Congress did some actual work rather than photo ops designed to get themselves re-elected.
Insurrection! Throw em in the gulag.
