Rep. Ocasio-Cortez's campaign paid $1,500 fine to NY state

"I think she needs to give herself an opportunity to know her colleagues and to give herself a sense of the chemistry of the body before passing judgment on anyone or anything", Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-NY) said. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) tapped into the nerd fanbase motherlode Friday when she quoted Watchmen author Alan Moore.

Ocasio-Cortez also advocates for an ambitious "Green New Deal" that calls for a transition to a 100 percent renewable energy system and the complete replacement of America's power grid as a means of generating jobs and saving the natural environment.

With more than 2 million followers on Twitter, Ocasio-Cortez uses the power of social media to address issues on her terms. Rank and file are peeved that there's a grassroots movement to try to win her a top committee post they feel she doesn't deserve. "We might as well ask for something big". But now she's under fire for failing to provide people who worked for her proper legal protection.

Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-Conn.) said that Ocasio-Cortez just doesn't understand how the Democratic Party works. "It doesn't have to", Lieberman wrote in The Wall Street Journal.

The New York Republican Party has since slammed Ocasio-Cortez as a hypocrite, saying the violation is "not a good look" for someone who claims to be a champion for workers.

"Make no mistake, come January, in this committee the days of this committee weakening regulations and putting our economy once again at risk of another financial crisis will come to an end", she said in remarks that briefly roiled markets". That move dovetails with the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act that Congress passed a year ago. 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.
