Ocasio-Cortez campaign fined by feds

Instead she shot back, tweeting, "New party, who dis?".

Ocasio-Cortez is a self-proclaimed socialist democrat who has claimed higher taxes and wealth distribution are needed.

AOC unsheathed the quote from a character created by the British anarchist author in response to a Politico piece about older-guard Democrats' frustration with the outspoken new member of their House.

"I'm sure Ms. Cortez means well, but there's nearly an outstanding rule: Don't attack your own people", Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) said. 'Honestly, if the Democrats had 3 more of her, Americans would run away so fast that we'd have a power monopoly until she's Lieberman's age'. But their frustration goes beyond that: Democratic leaders are upset that she railed against their new set of House rules on Twitter the first week of the new Congress. 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. 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.

According to VG, a note written in poor Norwegian was left at Hagen's home warning that she would die if police were alerted. Chief investigator Tommy Broeske said 68-year-old Anne-Elisabeth Falkevik Hagen has been missing since October 31.

In other words, whether Lieberman likes it or not, it would seem that the future of the Democratic party is already here.

"I think she needs to give herself an opportunity to know her colleagues and to give herself a sense of the chemistry of the body before passing judgment on anyone or anything", Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-NY) said.

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.

Her new chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, told supporters during a November conference call that 'we gotta primary folks'.
