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

Donald Trump

Ocasio-Cortez, who at 29 became the youngest woman to be sworn into Congress, had the ideal millennial four-word response to the criticism: "New party, who dis?".

"I'm sure Ms. Cortez means well, but there's nearly an outstanding rule: Don't attack your own people", said Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo. The former vice-presidential nominee, who retired in 2013 after being a US Senator for 24 years, insisted that the Democrats will only be losing public support if they adopt, what he called, her "left-left" views as their own.

Incumbent Democrats are most annoyed by Ocasio-Cortez's threat to back primary opponents against members of their ranks she deems too moderate.

According to reports, the campaign was forced to pay a $1,500 fine for not providing the required insurance. Rank and file are peeved that there's a grassroots movement to try to win her a top committee post they feel she doesn't deserve. On Thursday, Lieberman, an Independent, spoke with Fox Business about the future of the Democratic party and his thoughts on the rising political star, who was sworn in last week along with a fresh crop of House Representatives. "There's a difference between being an activist and a lawmaker in Congress".

Republicans jumped on the revelations, telling the newspaper that the episode reveals "hypocrisy at its finest" by Ocasio-Cortez.

They also quoted Democrats, such as Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) saying things like this: "I'm sure Ms. Cortez means well, but there's nearly an outstanding rule: Don't attack your own people".

Suspicious packages sent to Indian consulate, other missions in Australia
Ten News reporter Candice Wyatt told Nick McCallum there was about a dozen police outside the Spanish Consulate in Carlton. There are also reports the Korean, Greek, Italian, Pakistani and Egyptian consulates have also been in lockdown.

They both unseated a fellow Democrat and share Puerto Rican roots.

In other words, she's Lieberman's worst nightmare.

"This is basic stuff, especially if you hold yourself out to be the champion of workers", added the Democrat.

"She's new here, feeling her way around", Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-OR) said. "She doesn't understand how the place works yet".

The New York democratic socialist would be a thorn in the side of Wall Street, which has seen its regulatory burden lowered since Donald Trump became president.
