AOC campaign fined for not providing worker's comp
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/ocasio-...n-coverage

Quote:The campaign of rookie U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has been fined by the state for not providing workers’ compensation coverage for a month last year.

The failure to provide the coverage to campaign staff is particularly awkward for Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist who rose to stardom after unseating top Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley with a campaign theme of improving conditions for the working class.

“The employer did not have the required workers’ compensation coverage from March 31, 2018, to April 30, 2018, and was issued a final penalty of $1,500, which was paid,” state Workers Compensation Board spokeswoman Melissa Stewart told the New York Daily News.

“This coverage is vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries,” she added.

Quote:This isn’t the first time the congresswoman’s pro-working class credentials have been called into question.

She remains under scrutiny after avoiding answering questions on whether she will follow through with her own advice to fellow lawmakers to “have some integrity” and forgo their paychecks during the partial government shutdown.

Last year, Ocasio-Cortez was also mocked after lamenting the shuttering of a coffee shop in New York, even though it closed its doors thanks to the wage hike in the state – a policy that she supports.

“The restaurant I used to work at is closing its doors,” she wrote in a tweet. “I’m a normal, working person who chose to run for office, because I believe we can have a better future.”

The owners blamed the minimum wage hike for the closure. “The rents are very high and now the minimum wage is going up and we have a huge number of employees,” Charles Milite told the New York Post last month.

Typical leftist hypocrisy

As someone smarter than I recently posted, AOC is "an idiot’s idiot."

She suggested that Congress should forego their paychecks until the shutdown ends. 70-something Congressmen/women, including Dan Crenshaw, have since signed off on their paychecks to be held.

AOC has not, and said she "had to go" when Fox News called her office to see if she had put her money where her mouth was.

Defines AOC and the Democrats pretty well.
"...Ocasio-Cortez is ideologue. She can’t “lose” and she is not humbled when she cannot answer a simple policy question or is abjectly wrong about a subject, because she thinks ideologically. Her answers, outlook, and attitude are predetermined absolutely, because they are all derivations of an ideology that is utterly shock-proof. There is no experiment, fact-check, or body of evidence potent enough to disarm her, plainly because a person who thinks ideologically will not be allow themselves to be refuted.

Twentieth-century political theorist James Burnham, writing in Suicide of the West, defined the ideological thought process as a systematic, self-contained set of ideas dealing with the nature of reality and an individual’s relation to it. The primary function of ideology, Burnham contended, is to adjust attitudes and perception, not to state truths. Ideologues such as Ocasio-Cortez cannot be dissuaded by logical analysis or empirical evidence.

It is the ideology, not fact, that defines what will be accepted as truth, reason, or “morally right.” The ideologue will merely reinterpret, deny, or deflect facts so they become consistent with their outlook, or pose no threat to it. Ideologues press forward in optimism that they are on the right side of History, Progress, and Justice...."

Yup, they've forsaken reason and logic for what effectively boils down to a religious belief.

The religious left has become the deniers of science, history, and reality.
