Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was just fined for this hypocritical reason
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims to be for blue-collar workers.
She campaigned on raising the minimum wage to $15 despite the fact that it would lead to higher unemployment and cripple small businesses.
But her campaign was just slapped with a fine that will make you laugh out loud.
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign was fined $1,500 by the state of New York for failing to provide workers compensation coverage.
This is truly rich coming from someone who calls herself a champion of workers.
Fox News reports:
The campaign of rookie U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has been fined by the state for not providing workers’ compensation coverage for a month last year.
The failure to provide the coverage to campaign staff is particularly awkward for Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist who rose to stardom after unseating top Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley with a campaign theme of improving conditions for the working class.
“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 told the New York Daily News.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just can’t get out of her own way.
Earlier this week Rachel Maddow featured Ocasio-Cortez on her show to react to President Trump’s national address on the border wall.
And she stepped in it big time.
She accused President Trump of spreading “falsehood after falsehood.”
She even went as far as to claim illegal immigrants who break our laws to sneak into the country are “acting more American than any person who seeks to keep them out ever will be.”
Yet even CNN recently published an article titled, “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s very slippery slope on facts.”
In the article, CNN took her down in this one sentence:
Fudging the facts in pursuit of “being morally right” — as Ocasio-Cortez puts it — assumes that moral righteousness is an agreed-upon thing.
This is an incredibly dangerous path.
It’s the same propaganda that socialist dictators used when taking power.
