Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Dances Around Questions About Her Attorney
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a young Democrat who is running for Congress in New York’s 14th district. She has come under fire for not providing enough information about her attorney, and some have even accused her of being unqualified for the position. In an interview with The Washington Post, Ocasio-Cortez defended her decision to not release more information about her attorney and said that she trusts the judgment of her campaign team. She also noted that she is working with a team of lawyers who are experienced in electoral law and campaign finance.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez danced around questions about her attorney on Thursday, but did not provide any further information. Her refusal to answer questions may be a sign that she is not confident in her lawyer, or she may simply not know who he is. However, because the interview was conducted in Spanish and Ocasio-Cortez only spoke a few words of it, it is difficult to say for certain what her reasoning was.
