Republicans jumped on the revelations, telling the newspaper that the episode reveals "hypocrisy at its finest" by Ocasio-Cortez.

The 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez, a democratic socialist, made bettering the lives of working people and the poor in her Queens-Bronx district a key component of her successful campaign to upset longtime incumbent Joseph Crowley in the 2018 Democratic primary.

Ocasio-Cortez, a first time candidate, delivered a shocking upset a year ago when she ousted 10-term incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in New York's 14th congressional district. Others simultaneously warn Ocasio-Cortez is destined for a lonely, ineffectual career in Congress if she continues to treat her own party as the enemy. "And the Democratic Party is not going to succeed that way". But after the story published, she responding to the report on Twitter Friday, writing, "To quote Alan Moore: 'None of you understand".

Democratic Rep. Nydia Velázquez of NY has been a bridge between the Democratic caucus and Ocasio-Cortez, counseling the freshman congresswoman in private conversations against targeting her fellow Democrats, according to Politico. I'm not locked up in here with YOU.

Democratic leaders were also frustrated that Ocasio-Cortez criticized their new set of House rules on Twitter in the first week of the new Congress, Politico reported.

Veteran Democratic members suspected Ocasio-Cortez was behind a siable online campaign to convince Speaker Nancy Pelosi to give her the plum appointment.

After all, she's been in office for less than a fortnight and hasn't done anything except tweet out ridiculous comic book references and scare the beejeebees out of rational Democrats by pushing her multi-trillion-dollar "Green New Deal". "We will be one of them". 'Honestly, if the Democrats had 3 more of her, Americans would run away so fast that we'd have a power monopoly until she's Lieberman's age'.
