Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's father was a well-paid architect. Since the age of 5 she hasn't lived in the Bronx as she and others advertise. Since the age of 5 she has lived in a planned community with TWO golf courses in one of the richest counties in the entire country. Her dad was a millionaire.

That is nice if you want to support her, but she doesn't need to lie about being from a working class background and the NY Times and WaPo doesn't need to promote the lies. I realize the NY Times and WaPo are more about promoting an agenda than reality, but still.

Are democrats really that shallow that they wouldn't vote for a Democratic Socialist that wasn't truly from a middle class back ground?

This is interesting. I'm curious however to know, where does it say her father was a millionaire?

They have a narrative to promote. They think the truth is whatever they say it is, regardless of what the facts inconveniently happen to be.

She's only 28 and has much to learn about the real world. She's still living in dream land. What has she DONE or BUILT?

These are her 15 minutes of fame. If she gets to Wash DC, they will chew her up and spit her out like spoiled food. Next....

Quaking in our boots, by golly.

She's Bernie, lite. Just another freeloader.
The only ones who care about her are the people with their hands out. Slackers....

“a modest two-bedroom house on a quiet street.”

The article does nothing to refute this and Harlem has an amazing park.
