Now that she’s the “it girl” of the Democrats, who "represents the future of our party," according to the party chair Tom Perez, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s biographical claims have come under scrutiny, and cannot withstand the sunshine. Most notoriously (for now!) her claim that she commuted 40 minutes from her home in the Bronx to school in Westchester doesn’t pass the smell test. Mark Lungariello, of her actual home town (not the Bronx) Rockland/Westchester Journal News, writes:
U.S. congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s online bio was tweaked days after she faced scrutiny over where she grew up. (snip)
Her bio was called into question by some conservatives after the victory because she lived and went to school in Westchester County, New York, which some critics charged contradicted her Bronx girl campaign narrative.
The bio previously stated, “She ended up attending public school 40 minutes north in Yorktown, and much of her life was defined by the 40-minute commute between school and her family in the Bronx.”
That sentence in the bio has since been changed, though it still doesn’t explicitly state that she moved out of the Bronx to Yorktown when she was 5 years old.
“She ended up attending public school in Yorktown, 40 minutes north of her birthplace,” it now states. “As a result, much of her early life was spent in transit between her tight-knit extended family in the Bronx & her daily student life."
Face it: she lied. And she still is fudging the truth. "Tight-knit extended family" is a deceptive term meant to imply she lived in the Bronx when in fact she lived in upscale Westchester.
Would you buy a used biography from this woman?

She’s gorgeous, and perez looks like a snake, but they both would destroy this country if they got into office.

A Democrat that lies....how unusual (sarc)
ocasio-cortezs lies, professional obfuscation, and use of misdirection will quickly propel her to a leadership position in the dnc.
Holy cow! You mean a would-be politician lied to us?
Doesn’t matter if the bitch came from mars, America’s #1 enemy will prop her up as America’s darling! November is going to get REAL UGLY!!! Buckle up cause the ride is going to get nuts!!
Maybe she has high cheekbones in her ancestry??

Typical of all the demi-rats. Misrepresentation is a major part of their resume.
And all the while, dodging snipers’ bullets...
Thanks for the Photo.
First I’ve seen.
She ain’t All That.
The old saying goes the politicians who are setting her up to run for president someday are already building the log cabin in which she was born.
Gorgeous?!? Naw. For a latina, she’s fugly. Seriously.
I married one, in Miami area. I know latina women.
She’s a dog. Arf arf!
Communists feel the ends justify the means... but they’ll turn on a dime if the ‘ends’ need a different story...
They lowered the bar on beauty in 2006. Remember Obummers beard? We were told she was the most beautiful woman ever. Barf, puke, gag a maggot.
Now they can claim plane Jane is a beauty, and compared to moochie, well I guess she would be.
Strip you of your lies? If ANYONE lies, they lose credibility. You can not break moral laws and get away with it.
“It was never easy for me....I was born a poor, black child.”
Just another Obama.
First Fauxcahontas, now this.
