Ocasio-Cortez reportedly in line for banking post

Donald Trump

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez' congressional campaign was fined $1,500 for not having workers' compensation coverage for one month past year, the New York Daily News reported Friday.

"I can not tell you the amount of dysfunction that this president is advancing", she said on MSNCB following the address, as reported by The Daily Wire.

Democratic leaders were also frustrated that Ocasio-Cortez criticized their new set of House rules on Twitter in the first week of the new Congress, Politico reported. Also pictured is Rep. Dina Titus, D-Nev., right.

The report described lawmakers as fearful of Ocasio-Cortez's ability to swing progressives against more establishment Democrats and anxious to utilize her influence to unite the party.

During this time, campaign staffers were not covered for injuries received on the job.

Joe Lieberman, a former Democratic Delaware senator and vice presidential candidate, leveled his own criticism Thursday, telling Fox Business, "With all respect, I certainly hope she's not the future and I don't believe she is".

"She needs to decide: Does she want to be an effective legislator or just continue being a Twitter star?" a House Democrat who agrees with her on the issues told Politico. Instead she shot back, tweeting, "New party, who dis?".

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

What did Ocasio-Cortez say?

"She's new here, feeling her way around", added Rep. Kurt Schrader, D-Ore. "But it's a good example of what I'm talking about, a bright shiny new object, came out of nowhere and surprised people when she beat a very experienced congressman", she told CNN in December. He frequently voted along Republican ideology lines, and post-retirement from the Senate, served as head counsel for the white collar criminal defense and investigations practice at a law firm that did extensive work for Donald Trump and then later failed to mention that as a conflict of interest when necessary.
