According to the NYDN, a "Democratic campaign veteran scoffed that "it's not a great look" for Ocasio-Cortez that her campaign received a fine for not carrying workers' compensation coverage".
According to Politico, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) said, "I'm sure Ms. Cortez means well, but there's nearly an outstanding rule: Don't attack your own people".
However, Ocasio-Cortez has seen an explosion in popularity, thanks especially to Facebook and Twitter, neither of which existed when Lieberman ran for vice president in 2000.
"I think that there's a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right", she told host Anderson Cooper.
Technically, it's the same political party, but a newer swath of lawmakers are filling seats in the Capitol, including Ocasio-Cortez, a freshman already making ripples in her first week.
Some lawmakers are trying to convince Ocasio-Cortez to use her influence to unite Democrats, while others have warned her that she's headed for a lonely tenure in Congress if she treats her more moderate colleagues as enemies, the report said. "She doesn't understand how the place works yet".
She says the fine, first reported by the New York Daily News, has been paid.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, has come under fire after it was revealed that her campaign was fined by the state for not providing workers' compensation coverage for a month previous year.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has zoomed into the social media stratosphere.
When an editor from the National Journal, Josh Kraushaar, pointed out Ocasio-Cortez's media criticism resembled that of President Donald Trump, the self-identified Democratic socialist doubled down. "I'm a little confused why she's the thing".
Ocasio-Cortez's mention of "brown lady says a curse word" was likely a swipe at the media attention Rashida Tlaib, a Muslim congresswoman from MI, garnered when she called Trump a motherf****r shortly after being sworn into office.
