When asked recently about Virginia’s embattled Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax, Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shirked the question, denying knowledge of the serious allegations of sexual assault against Fairfax.
However, as several conservative pundits quickly pointed out, the young Congresswoman wasted no time in condemning Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh for unfounded allegations which came during his confirmation hearing.
Interestingly, Ocasio-Cortez was asked about the Fairfax allegations a week after they began coming out, yet declined to comment on the issue, whereas she immediately helped to publicly propel the accusations against Kavanaugh.

Social media users were not impressed with Ocasio-Cortez for having dodged the question, with many pointing out that her duty as an elected official included being aware of the situation involving Fairfax.
I would have been impressed if she stopped and answered truthfully.

Ever notice when she’s in one of her “mean girls” groups, she’s looking for the camera but when she’s alone always avoids questions? 🐑 🐑 🐑

Funny, @AOC claims to be an expert on every other subject under the sun.

Reminds me of a friend of mine who was very religious. He read the Bible a lot. He also drank lots of whiskey. I asked his what does it say in the Bible about drinking whiskey. He said he didn’t read that part.

she should absolutely have as a Congress woman-elect have made it her business to learn every single thing there was to know about the accusations against the Supreme Court Justice nominee. the LT. Govnr of Va is as high profile as Kavanaugh?
