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

The stunt backfired as the dance went viral and Ocasio-Cortez dancing her way into her Congressional office in a short video for Twitter.

Joe Lieberman, former Democratic Senator from CT, made it clear he is not a fan of New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

"If you look at the majority of new Democrats in the house, they tend to be, I say, center-left, if they are not left-left", he said.

According to reports, the campaign was forced to pay a $1,500 fine for not providing the required insurance.

"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", said Representative Yvette Clarke (D., N.Y.).

AOC unsheathed the quote from a character created by the British anarchist author in response to a Politico piece about older-guard Democrats' frustration with the outspoken new member of their House. Her statement drew praise from both sides of the aisle. This wasn't Lieberman's first slam against her. But others believe Ocasio-Cortez is tweeting her way to an ineffectual career if she continues to treat her own party as the enemy.

The 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez, a democratic socialist, made bettering the lives of working people and the poor in her Queens-Bronx district a key component of her successful campaign to upset longtime incumbent Joseph Crowley in the 2018 Democratic primary. "Because the policies Ms. Ocasio-Cortez advocates are so far from the mainstream, her election in November would make it harder for Congress to stop fighting and start fixing problems".

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.
