WATCH: AOC Under Fire for Claiming to Know Nothing About Justin Fairfax Allegations

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.
