Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not doing herself any favors, nor making many friends during her first year in Congress.
She’s frequently clashed with members of her own party, and understandably so.
It would be one thing if she were experienced, an expert on her own party’s platform, or even practiced what she preaches. But according to a recent FEC complaint, her own chief of staff allegedly used a complex series of transactions to skirt federal election law. All this while AOC has railed against these kinds of campaign finance practices.
Here’s the bottom line: AOC’s rise to prominence illustrates a weakness and lack of real leadership within the Democratic Party. Her stint in Congress has been far more tumultuous than anyone could have expected.
