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

Pelosi Ocasio Cortez Hug

Establishment Democrats are fighting self-proclaimed socialist Rep.

Some of the lawmakers want her to help unite Democrats and focus her attacks on the Republicans, while others warn she has to stop treating her own party as the enemy, the website noted.

Yes, but she was on "60 Minutes" and got to call Donald Trump a racist on national television. This is about as dumb a move as any frosh member of Congress has ever pulled.

And her almost 3 million Twitter followers add to her clout.

AOC is heading for a fall.

Former Obama Cabinet Member Julián Castro Announces 2020 Presidential Bid
Joaquin Castro's position on the House Intelligence Committee has made him a frequent public critic of the president. Castro is among the first in a long list of expected Democratic candidates to officially announce their bids.


What did Ocasio-Cortez say?

"I'm sure Ms. Cortez means well, but there's nearly an outstanding rule: Don't attack your own people", said Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO).

Meanwhile, Politico ran an article today claiming "Exasperated Democrats try to rein in Ocasio-Cortez", for which AOC had yet another ideal response, not just shutting down the sentiment but also solidifying her nerd cred for the foreseeable future.

In a comparison that Ocasio-Cortez would surely hate, politicos have pointed out that the NY rep. has "Trumpian" tendencies. "Honestly, if the Democrats had three more of her [Ocasio-Cortez], Americans would run away so fast that we'd have a power monopoly until she's Lieberman's age".

'If you look at the majority of new Democrats in the House, ' he said, 'they tend to be - I say, center-left. and that is because they had to be center-left to win some of those competitive swing districts that they took from Republicans'. She also criticized POLITICO for publishing a story suggesting she considered backing a primary opponent against rising star Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), who many believe could become the first black speaker.
