Ocasio-Cortez passed over for influential House committee

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez' congressional campaign was fined $1,500 for not having workers' compensation coverage for one month a year ago, the New York Daily News reported Friday.

She says the fine, first reported by the New York Daily News, has been paid. Also pictured is Rep. Dina Titus, D-Nev., right.

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.

During this time, campaign staffers were not covered for injuries received on the job.

Former Democratic vice presidential candidate and general curmudgeon Joe Lieberman is a former Senator best known for bucking his party by supporting conservative positions.

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. In June, she beat Crowley and last November she was elected to Congress. Ocasio-Cortez is now part of the 116th class of Congress, which also happens to be the most diverse, with a record number of women winning seats in the House of Representatives.

"There's a difference between being an activist and a lawmaker in Congress", the source said.

Some Democrats recently expressed their concern and criticism over her methods to Politico.

The Politico report said some Democrats compare Ocasio-Cortez' prolific use of Twitter to President Trump's regular posts on social media.

In 2011, Ocasio-Cortez graduated from Boston University with a degree in economics and global relations. "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.

"I think she needs to give herself an opportunity to know her colleagues and to give herself a sense of the chemistry of the body before passing judgment on anyone or anything", Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-NY) said.
