Celebrity Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has taken to social media, calling for the Electoral College to be scrapped because it's a "scam."

Ocasio-Cortez claims that the body of electors, whose votes are required to elect a US president, is racist, suggesting it disenfranchises people of color.

In a Monday Instagram post, Ocasio-Cortez joked that she saw "many votes" while driving through the desert.

She went on to sarcastically refer to it as the "electoral college."

The far-left AOC Squad leader then cited several excerpts from a New York Magazine article that refutes arguments in favor of the Electoral College.

AOC told Republicans that she thinks the system "is, in fact, a scam."

"The Electoral College has a racial injustice breakdown," Ocasio-Cortez said.

"Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the Electoral College effectively weighs white voters over voters of color, as opposed to a 'one person, one vote' system where all our votes are counted equally."

The controversial Democrat went on to blast the argument that the Electoral College would give rural states a "fair shake."

"Could you image if we had this kind democracy-altering 'fairness' provision for literally any other group?" the congresswoman asked.

"If we weighed, for example, black and indigenous voters more because of unfairness?"

She later pointed to Republicans who live in blue states and how their votes "count equally" in a popular vote.

The socialist lawmaker claims that eliminating the Electoral College would end the "special treatment of some voters over others."

"#FactsAreFacts, America," Ocasio-Cortez concluded.

"The Electoral College has got to go."
