Ocasio-Cortez campaign fined over employer rule violation


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has only been in Congress for a week, and she has done a fantastic job of proving to everyone that she’s a total hypocrite.

On Thursday, her campaign was fined by the state of New York for not carrying workers’ compensation insurance for a month while she ran for public office last year.

“The employer did not have the required workers’ compensation coverage from March 31, 2018, to April 30, 2018, and was issued a final penalty of $1,500, which was paid,” state Workers Compensation Board spokeswoman Melissa Stewart said.

“This coverage is vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries,” Stewart added.

Adding insult to injury, the so-called champion of workers’ rights is anything but that.

In fact, she has taken to Twitter numerous times to rage against “greedy employers,” which is apparently what she is.


Ocasio-Cortez also recently flip-flopped on donating her congressional salary during the government shutdown.

Last week, the 29-year-old socialist was asked if she will honor her own advice to lawmakers to “have some integrity” and give up their salary while the federal government is shutdown.

When asked about donating her salary, Ocasio-Cortez told a reporter, I’ve gotta run.”

We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
