Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 28, defeated a ten-term NYC Congressional incumbent, Joe Crowley, and she touted her “girl from the Bronx’ working-class background.

But, in fact, she grew up in Yorktown, a wealthy suburb north of NYC.


But no matter. The Huffington Post has already anointed her as the person who will be the leading Democrat on Climate Change.


U.S. congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s online bio was tweaked days after she faced scrutiny over where she grew up.

Ocasio-Cortez, 28, drew national attention when she won a Democratic Party primary against longtime U.S. Rep. Joseph Crowley in a district that represents parts of the Bronx and Queens.

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….
