Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's campaign was fined by the state of NY for not having required workers' compensation for a month past year, according to the NY state Workers' Compensation Board.
There is a stark contrast between Ocasio-Cortez's style and freshman congressman Dan Crenshaw's (R-Texas) as both of their names have been in the media several times. Also pictured is Rep. Dina Titus, D-Nev., right.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) tapped into the nerd fanbase motherlode Friday when she quoted Watchmen author Alan Moore.
Ocasio-Cortez, a first time candidate, delivered a shocking upset previous year when she ousted 10-term incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in New York's 14th congressional district. "Honestly, if the Democrats had three more of her [Ocasio-Cortez], Americans would run away so fast that we'd have a power monopoly until she's Lieberman's age".

"With all respect, I certainly hope she's not the future and I don't believe she is", he said.
Recently Ocasio-Cortez told Politico that she wasn't interested in backing progressive candidates against incumbent Democrats, insisting that she's "focused on my job". She still has not answered whether she will follow through with her own advice to fellow lawmakers to "have some integrity" and forgo her paychecks during the partial government shutdown.
Ocasio-Cortez shared with her more than 2 million Twitter followers that she'd vote against a Democratic rules package.
According to the Daily News, her spokesman had "nothing to add". "It's not the same thing, at all", she said.
