Democratic Rep. Nydia Velázquez of NY has been a bridge between the Democratic caucus and Ocasio-Cortez, counseling the freshman congresswoman in private conversations against targeting her fellow Democrats, according to Politico.

"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 said.

"This coverage is vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries", Stewart said. In its Friday report, Politico pointed to no fewer than 20 Democratic lawmakers who aren't exactly over the moon about Ocasio-Cortez's public behavior and its reflection on the party. "It's unbelievable", said state GOP spokeswoman Jessica Proud. "The so-called champion of workers, when given her own responsibility, is not following the law".

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's journey to Washington began in the Bronx, N.Y., where she was born to Puerto Rican parents.

Technically, it's the same political party, but a newer swath of lawmakers are filling seats in the Capitol, including Ocasio-Cortez, a freshman already making ripples in her first week.

Thailand will have to wait for the results from all the groups to see if they qualify as one of the best third-placed teams. India then hit the post once more in the last few minutes of the game but couldn't convert and lost the match 2-0.

Republicans quoted in local news reports were quick to complain about the apparent hypocrisy, and a Democrat agreed that the oversight did not look good.

"I think that there's a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right", she told host Anderson Cooper.

Ocasio-Cortez was just 10 years old when Lieberman ran for vice president along with Gore.

Politico noted that Ocasio-Cortez's star power includes being better known by millions of Americans than longtime House Democrats, including Nancy Pelosi and John Lewis. "It's not the same thing, at all", she said.

In November, Ocasio-Cortez, 29, became the youngest woman ever elected to Congress.
