Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Schools Joe Lieberman Over Remarks That She’s Too ‘Controversial’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez' congressional campaign was fined $1,500 for not having workers' compensation coverage for one month past year, the New York Daily News reported Friday.

A spokeswoman for the NY state Workers' Compensation Board, Melissa Stewart, said Friday that Ocasio-Cortez's Democratic campaign lacked coverage from March 31 to April 30.

"This coverage is vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries", said the spokeswoman.

The failure to provide workers' compensation coverage lasted one month, as noted by Stewart, but that was enough for fellow Democrats to voice concern over the report and critics of the young rep to highlight the lack of coverage as evidence of "hypocrisy".

Ocasio-Cortez, who at 29 became the youngest woman to be sworn into Congress, had the flawless millennial four-word response to the criticism: "New party, who dis?"

According to reports, the campaign was forced to pay a $1,500 fine for not providing the required insurance.

"This is basic stuff, especially if you hold yourself out to be the champion of workers", added the Democrat. Jeffries is the new Democratic Caucus chair. "She doesn't understand how the place works yet". "She's gotten a lot of attention because she's different".

In 2011, Ocasio-Cortez graduated from Boston University with a degree in economics and worldwide relations. But it's- it's not the same thing as- as the President lying about immigrants.

"She needs to decide: Does she want to be an effective legislator or just continue being a Twitter star?" an anonymous House Democrat said. In June, she beat Crowley and last November she was elected to Congress. Ocasio-Cortez is now part of the 116th class of Congress, which also happens to be the most diverse, with a record number of women winning seats in the House of Representatives.
