Earlier this month, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) advertised on social media that her team was hiring a number of people to help her win in the upcoming November election:
Team AOC is hiring!
Field organizers, video producers, creative directors, and more to help us win a future for the many with Medicare for All, a federal jobs guarantee, dismantling systemic racism & a Green New Deal🌞🌱
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) August 13, 2020
In her tweet, she asked followers to view a Google document that included the titles, duties, requirements and salaries/benefits of each position.
Oddly enough, the first two positions, Creative Director and Field Organizing Director, featured monthly salaries that each totaled $6,666.66:
The number ‘666’ is commonly known in the Bible as the ‘Mark of the Beast’ or ‘Devil’s Number’:
The number of the beast is associated with the Beast of Revelation in chapter 13, verse 18 of Book of Revelation. In most manuscripts of the New Testament and in English translations of the Bible, the number of the beast is six hundred and sixty-six or χξϛ (in Greek numerals, χ represents 600, ξ represents 60 and ϛ represents 6). –Wikipedia
Now, a question remains: Why did Ocasio-Cortez choose this particular number, up to the cent, as salaries for two new prestigious positions in her 2020 re-election campaign team?
