New Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Takes Heat for Corbyn Praise

WASHINGTON (JTA) - Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who is emerging as a leader of Democratic progressives, told a Jewish writer that she would reach out to discuss allegations that Jeremy Corbyn, the British opposition leader, is antisemitic.

"Here's a hint: I just picked up this gift for them at our very own Lockwood Shop in Jackson Heights", Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, referencing a neighborhood in Queens that she represents. She shared Monday on Twitter that she was bringing Ana Maria Archila, the woman who confronted Senator Jeff Flake about her sexual assault and urged him to reconsider his vote for then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. In an appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Ford told the panel that she was "100 percent" certain that Kavanaugh had assaulted her at a gathering of teenagers when they were in high school in the 1980s; Kavanaugh vehemently denied the accusations during his testimony.

Following the confrontation, Flake called on Republicans to delay the vote and allow the FBI to investigate the allegations for one week.

"I hope you'll take a look at the amount of Jews trying to call attention to Corbyn's long, documented history of anti-Semitism."The left's blind spot in this regard can still be fixed". Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortex retweeted CNN's tweet that said "State of the Union 2019: What to watch" and she said, "None of it". She wasn't planning on leaping into that elevator ahead of the Kavanaugh vote, but after hearing the stories of survivors across the country, she went in.

Ocasio-Cortez replied, thanking Nehorai for his comments, adding: "We can not + will not move forward without deep fellowship and leadership with the Jewish community".

Speaking on Monday, he said: "There's a much greater chance they [the Sala family] will get answers if [the plane is] recovered". Below are pictures of Emiliano Sala's dog, before his master went missing, and now as it looks in hope for his return.


"Look at me when I'm talking to you".

Archila is co-executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy.

Following the encounter, Flake pushed for a delay in the confirmation process to allow for an FBI investigation. He ultimately voted to confirm Kavanaugh and is now retired from the Senate.

Archila, who is the co-executive director of the NY nonprofit Center for Popular Democracy, said she will be dressed in white and seated in the gallery overlooking the chamber.

Whether attempting to shame her over her wardrobe or dancing in an old college viral video, Ocasio-Cortez always somehow seems to come out on top. "We can wear them on Tuesday".
