Albany, NY - The campaign of U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been fined $1,500 for not having the required workers’ compensation for a month last year.

A spokeswoman for the New York state Workers’ Compensation Board, Melissa Stewart, said Friday that Ocasio-Cortez’s Democratic campaign lacked coverage from March 31 to April 30.

She says the fine, first reported by the New York Daily News, has been paid.

Stewart says the coverage is “vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries.”

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.

A message left with her Washington office wasn’t returned.

If Trump was nabbed on an oversight like this, this imbecile would be screaming that this is an impeachable offense. May those with ignorance levels like hers be kept away from positions of authority and power. May those with morality levels like hers be somehow kept away from society.

Be nice to her, she might be your POTUS soon. You dont want her to retaliate against her enemies like Trump did. It cant hurt to be nice. Trump wouldnt be in this Matzev if not all his shigas lke Little Rubio, Lying Ted etc. Reagan did more illegal Impeachable offenses than Trump (Iran Contra) and nobody Dems or Reps did do to him what they do to Trump. Trump is rated even lower than Nixon. We are in the Golus and nothing to gain attacking politicians.

Ain't it too bad that Trump with his low rating is not going anywhere and he will win again in 2020.

Fake news Trump doesn't hold grudges. He invited Romney to the wh. And he has considered many of his opponents for positions. Yes during the race he plays nasty. But to the contrary he doesn't hold grudges
Cortez is a dumb stupid waitress kid. She ain't being the next president.
Maybe deblassio. You have wierd wild ideas and paranoia

She's nearing the end of her 15 minutes of fame. Soon she will be saying and demanding crazier and crazier stuff until she will be the political equivalent of nuclear waste. No one will want to be anywhere near her and her name will be used to scare people to stay away from anyone who has been seen near her or standing by her. The Establishment Democrats are going to sideline her until she learns the rules.

Bernie Sanders in lipstick.

To #1- You should get your facts staight; Lieberman initiated the feud by going after her publicly, when he was interviewed by the media. She merely responded on Twitter, as would Trump. Your bogus charge of anti-semitism in this case, detracts from those who are bonafide anti-semites, such as Nazis, and other fringe groups.
