Rep. Ocasio-Cortez's campaign fined for not providing workers' comp coverage

Whoopi Goldberg and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

As reported by The New York Daily News on Thursday, Ocasio-Cortez's campaign has been hit with a New York state fine for failing to carry workers' compensation coverage.

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

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

Members of Congress tell Politico on and off the record that Ocasio-Cortez will have an ineffective legislative career if she continues to criticize party leadership. "The so-called champion of workers, when given her own responsibility, is not following the law".

Meanwhile, Politico ran an article today claiming "Exasperated Democrats try to rein in Ocasio-Cortez", for which AOC had yet another flawless response, not just shutting down the sentiment but also solidifying her nerd cred for the foreseeable future. "We cannot get their casework started because we cannot even get laptops in the hands of our district offices because the president has made a decision to hold the paychecks of everyday Americans hostage so that he can fulfill campaign, I don't even want to call it a promise, a campaign fantasy that the vast majority of Americans disapprove of".

Instead, the open downstate NY slot on the House Ways and Means Committee went to a moderate Democrat, Long Island Rep. Tom Suozzi, a former CPA, attorney and county executive.

When asked by Anderson Cooper on CBS's 60 Minutes, whether Trump "is a racist", she responded: "Yeah, yeah no question".

They point to her hiring of two former organizers from the progressive group Justice Democrats, which helped get her elected, and a November conference call in which she urged, "all Americans know money in politics is a huge problem, but unfortunately the way that we fix it is by demanding that our incumbents give it up or by running fierce campaigns ourselves".

The freshman representative was sure to deny that such a sentiment is comparable to the president at all. "But it's a good example of what I'm talking about, a bright shiny new object, came out of nowhere and surprised people when she beat a very experienced congressman", she told CNN in December. "Whenever I make a mistake. It's not the same thing, at all", she said.
