Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Campaign Fined For Not Providing Worker's Compensation Coverage

Washington Examiner

Excerpt:

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign was fined $1,500 by New York for failing to provide workers’ compensation coverage for a month in early 2018.

The 29-year-old Democratic Socialist's campaign “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,” Melissa Stewart, director of public information at the state’s Workers Compensation Board told the New York Daily News.
“This coverage is vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries,” Stewart said.

GOP spokeswoman Jessica Proud told the outlet that the incident represented “hypocrisy at its finest.”

“The so-called champion of workers, when given her own responsibility, is not following the law. It’s unbelievable,” Proud said.

In fairness to her, this was for just a month, so it could have been an oversight. Despite the fact she’s been out of school several years and is pushing 30, she’s still never been anything but a bartender/waitress, so it’s not like she’s ever been an employer or payroll manager before. Rather than hypocrisy (in THIS particular case), maybe it was simple incompetence.

I have a feeling we're going to see A LOT of that in the next few years.

Yes, and a lot of her real hypocrisy, as well. It might even be a challenge keeping straight which is which, but I’m one of those types of who thinks you first need to be “precisely, factually correct” in order to even have a chance at being “morally right”.

She didn't start her campaign without talking to people within the party and they all have the know how to set up these things and run the campaigns properly.

However, there is a history of candidates walking away leaving large tabs owing after a campaign has been run.

This is just another example of politicos deciding where to cut corners and not having the moral fiber to be embarrassed about it.

The fact that the social justice warrior happily ignored the law to protect the well being of her lowly grunts, well, it just adds one more layer of hypocrisy to her already thick coat of varnish.

Ignorance is bliss on so many levels .... Unfortunately, that bliss is only enjoyed by the ignorant.

I certainly get it, and you make a valid point, but I can’t help that my next thought is “had the reverse been true what would AOC say?”

Before this incident of hers, I think she would have been her usual very mouthy and judgmental self if someone else had made the identical mistake, especially someone on the other side of the political spectrum. However, now that she's gone through making the mistake herself, I'd like to think she would not be so quick to cast stones at anyone else over it. Of course, in her case, there's an excellent chance any such newfound, uncharacteristic restraint would come not from having gained some humility and understanding, but rather simply from realizing she has something in her past that makes her not well-suited to being able to point a finger and lecture the other person for political points in the situation.
