Democrat Socialist darling Ocasio-Cortez sent shock waves through the Democrat Party when she defeated the fourth most powerful Democrat in the House of Representatives, Rep. Joe Crowley, in the New York primary in June.
The Democrat Socialists of America support no borders, no profit, no prisons and no cash bail.
But now Ocasio Cortez is coming under fire for fudging her bio page on her campaign website.
Ocasio-Cartez claimed she commuted to school everyday 40 minutes from her home in the Bronx.
“She ended up attending public school 40 minutes north in Yorktown, and much of her life was defined by the 40 minute commute between school and her family in the Bronx.”
But after she got caught the Socialist Democrat changed her bio to reflect that she was not commuting 40 minutes a day which was a complete lie.
She ended up attending public school in Yorktown—40 minutes north of her birthplace. As a result, much of her early life was spent in transit between her tight-knit extended family in the Bronx and her daily student life. It was clear to her, even then, that the zip code a child was born in determined much of their destiny.
FOX News reported:
The Democratic Socialist candidate seeking to represent New York’s 14th Congressional District is facing backlash over her working class “Bronx girl” campaign narrative.
As the Journal News reported, the original online bio for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — the 28-year-old Bernie Sanders protégé who defeated longtime Democratic incumbent U.S. Rep. Joseph Crowley on June 26 — seemed to suggest that she commuted to a school in the suburbs from her family’s home in the Bronx borough of New York City.
But after critics noted that she and her family left the Bronx when she was 5 years old, the bio was changed to imply that the Bronx was home to her “extended family,” the newspaper reported.
Still, no mention was made that her family moved to Yorktown, north of the Bronx, where records indicate Ocasio-Cortez lived with her mother and brother until their home was sold in 2016 for $355,500, according to the report.
Ocasio-Cortez fired back at her critics.
“Your attempt to strip me of my family, my story, my home, and my identity is exemplary of how scared you are of the power of all four of those things,” she tweeted.
The candidate has built her campaign on a laundry list of socialist ideas such as universal healthcare, a $15 minimum wage, and abolishing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
