Freshman Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) has found herself in some big trouble lately.

And yet, still, the mainstream media doesn’t seem to care. Curious, isn’t it?

The latest example…

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y) has been hit with an ethics complaint alleging that the freshman Democrat improperly used House resources for political purposes in violation of ethics rules.

The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT), a Washington, D.C.-based watchdog group, filed the complaint Thursday to the U.S. House of Representative’s Office of Congressional Ethics requesting that the committee investigate Ocasio-Cortez’s use of official resources on her social media accounts.

“In the first two weeks of February 2019, Ocasio- Cortez posted numerous videos of official House floor and committee proceedings on her political Twitter and Instagram accounts,” the complaint reads. “Her posts prominently displayed both official House photographs and video footage, on which she commented and instructed viewers to watch the videos.”

Continued:

“Ironically, in one of the posts she discussed the ethics standards to which she should be held,” it continues. “Additionally, on Ocasio-Cortez’s political Instagram page, she directly links to her official House Instagram account and includes a link for political contributions, alongside the posts of official video footage and her comments on official action. There are numerous ethics rules violated in this case, all of which require separation between official action and resources and political action and fundraising.”

House ethics rules prohibit Members from using official taxpayer-backed resources for any political or campaign-related activities.

The watchdog says that Ocasio-Cortez committed a number of violations.

S. Mitra Kalita has a blue checkmark on Twitter and works in the programming department for CNN.

She sent the following tweet:

Seeing the words “prepared” and “authentic” to describe @AOC, often with surprise that she’s made it so far. This is the superpower of women of color: to prep more than everyone else, read the room, yet stay true to yourself because the alternative ain’t worth it. Just guessing.

Self-described Democrat Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded, essentially playing the victim card:

People think it’s a joke when folks say we have to work 2x as hard for the same seat.

Whether you believe it or not, the upside is when we do get here,we’re used to being held to a diff bar. To being doubted. To getting new hoops thrown @ us last min.

So we know how to perform.

Twiter took notice, and things quickly backfired on Alexandria:

Ocasio-Cortez defended anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar:

Unlike this President, Rep. @IlhanMN demonstrated a capacity to acknowledge pain & apologize, use the opportunity to learn abt history of antisemitism,+grow from it while clarifying her stance.

I’m also inspired by Jewish leadership who brought her in, not push her out, to heal.

AOC is “proud” of Omar:

Lots of people here proclaiming to be “woke” trying to police communities on what they are/aren’t allowed to be upset by.

I’m proud @IlhanMN raised the issue of lobbyist 💰 in politics & equally proud of her sensitivity to communities. Both are possible.

Omar showed no shame after responding to a series of tweets from journalist Glenn Greenwald.

LOOK:

Enter Omar with the anti-Semitic stereotype:

REPORT: Not Long Before Epstein’s Arrest, He Rush-Ordered $100,000 Cement Mixer to Private Island

Hmm…Interesting, to say the LEAST!

You know when you call a business and ask them to deliver a cement mixer to your private island? Oh, have you never been in Jeffrey Epstein’s shoes? Now that a medical examiner has “confirmed” that the registered sex offender committed suicide, new information has just been released about what happened in the lead-up to his arrest. From Daily Wire: Convicted pedophile and alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein reportedly had a $100,000 cement truck rushed to his mansion in the Virgin Islands late last year, just days before a bombshell report was published by the Miami Herald which ultimately led to his arrest. Epstein “got the Carmix 5.5 XL self-loading concrete mixer delivered to Little St. James on November 7 last year,” the Daily Mail reported. “Epstein was in such a hurry that he paid for the machine up front so it would arrive sooner — even though it meant being responsible if it got damaged in transit.” The timeline of events is important here, especially when taking into consideration other items that Epstein shipped to his other residences at times when he was facing legal troubles. Who are we kidding? Epstein was probably trying to bury some evidence, right? RIGHT!? WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPMp9edgAeg That Jeffrey Epstein could commit suicide after being on suicide watch defies belief. There are many powerful men who wanted him dead, and their secrets to die with him. Epstein epitomized the sickness in the souls of so many men. #ToxicMasculinity https://twitter.com/tonyschwartz/status/1160188139941572608?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1160188139941572608&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-jeffrey-epstein-is-dead%2F I have no idea how Epstein committed suicide while under suicide watch. There needs to be a thorough investigation. More importantly, I’m saddened for all the people who will be denied answers, explanations, and justice. https://twitter.com/marclamonthill/status/1160188503780671491?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1160188503780671491&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-jeffrey-epstein-is-dead%2F BREAKING: Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide ends the criminal case against him because no one else was charged in the indictment…

BOMBS AWAY! Trump Brutally Mocks Rashida Tlaib Like Never Before, & It’s Can’t Miss

DDAAAAANNNGGG!!

In case you missed the news regarding Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, AOC, and Israel, President Trump has graciously decided to sum most of it up. He went after Tlaib pretty hard. Here’s why… Israel was very respectful & nice to Rep. Rashida Tlaib, allowing her permission to visit her “grandmother.” As soon as she was granted permission, she grandstanded & loudly proclaimed she would not visit Israel. Could this possibly have been a setup? Israel acted appropriately! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1162490843619635201?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162490843619635201&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Flol-trump-calls-out-rashida-tlaib-on-twitter%2F Rep. Tlaib wrote a letter to Israeli officials desperately wanting to visit her grandmother. Permission was quickly granted, whereupon Tlaib obnoxiously turned the approval down, a complete setup. The only real winner here is Tlaib’s grandmother. She doesn’t have to see her now! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1162493654432460801?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162493654432460801&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Flol-trump-calls-out-rashida-tlaib-on-twitter%2F Like it or not, Tlaib and Omar are fast becoming the face of the Democrat Party. Cortez (AOC) is fuming, not happy about this! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1162495014037049346?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162495014037049346&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Flol-trump-calls-out-rashida-tlaib-on-twitter%2F Trump told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu not to let the radical freshman Democrats into the country. He listened. It’s official: Israel will bar Congresswomen @RashidaTlaib and @IlhanMN from entering Israel due to “suspected provocations and promotion of BDS” at this time the final decision is been drafted and passed for comments before a press release. https://twitter.com/danawt/status/1161952978904985601?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1161952978904985601&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Freport-congresswomen-ilhan-omar-and-rashida-tlaib-will-be-banned-from-entering-israel%2F From New York Post: Israel on Thursday barred Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering the Jewish state, citing their support for a Palestinian-led boycott movement — a decision that unleashed a torrent of condemnation by Democratic congressional lawmakers. “The decision has been made, the decision is not to allow them to enter,” Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely told Israel’s Reshet Bet Radio. Netanyahu’s words: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: No country in the world respects America and the American Congress more than the State of Israel. As a free and vibrant democracy, Israel is…
