AOC Embroiled in Ethics Scandal After Clashing with Conservative Activist [Video]
Controversial congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is facing mounting criticism after a heated altercation with Twitter user Chaya Raichik, who runs the “Libs of TikTok” account, in the halls of the Capitol building. The incident, captured on video by the Heritage Foundation, shows Ocasio-Cortez storming away from Raichik after accusing her of being “super transphobic.”
According to witnesses, the confrontation began when the two bumped into each other in the congressional building. Ocasio-Cortez reportedly told Raichik, “You’re actually super transphobic and I never want to share a space with you,” before storming off.
Raichik later tweeted that she was on Capitol Hill to serve Ocasio-Cortez with an ethics complaint “after she lied about me in a committee hearing.”
During a recent hearing of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, Ocasio-Cortez accused Raichik of lying about Boston Children’s Hospital offering “gender affirming hysterectomies” for young girls. In response, the Heritage Foundation has filed a nine-page complaint against Ocasio-Cortez, alleging that she broke ethics rules by “knowingly and intentionally defaming Chaya Raichik, creator of the viral Libs of TikTok account, falsely accusing her of lying and disseminating disinformation.”
Last year, Raichik’s “Libs of TikTok” account was banned by Facebook following alleged threats against Boston Children’s Hospital staff after a post alleging minors were undergoing hysterectomies as part of gender-affirming surgeries. Raichik gained more than a million Twitter followers after retweeting TikTok videos showing controversial drag shows that included children in the audience.
Despite mounting pressure from critics, Ocasio-Cortez has yet to respond to the complaint. It’s clear that tensions between the congresswoman and her conservative opponents are reaching a boiling point. Only time will tell how this situation will ultimately be resolved.
