Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is lying about her upbringing once again, saying she is just a “girl from the Bronx,” when the truth is she did not grow up there at all.
In fact, the self-professed socialist grew up as a well-off kid in the ritzy New York suburbs, not the lower to middle-class Bronx.
On Thursday, the woman increasingly being called Alexandria Occasional-Cortex tweeted out the new plaque that will sit outside her office in Washington:
“Don’t be fooled by the plaques that we got, I’m still / I’m still Alex from the Bronx,” she wrote.

This, of course, is an outright lie. She was never “Alex from the Bronx.”
The congresswoman to be insists that she grew up a poor girl in the Bronx. Indeed, on her campaign bio she specifically notes that she spent her youth living in the downscale Bronx. So she is down wif da shtruggle, don’t cha know!
But, what she doesn’t bother to mention is that she moved away from the poor neighborhood in the Bronx when she was a five-year-old when her architect daddy moved the family to the upper middle class area of Westchester.
Indeed, according to Daily Wire, the average income in Westchester is $116,741, about twice that of families in the Bronx.
So, it appears that Ocasio-Cortez grew up a poor little girl, alright. But a poor little rich girl!
Speaking of Ocasio-Cortez and money, it seems that she has no problem taking yours away but is a bit tightfisted with her own. Page Six recently found a former co-worker who still holds a grudge after the suddenly famous candidate gipped her out of a night’s tips at a restaurant they worked at together.
But one waitress has a bad memory of working with Ocasio-Cortez, 28, as Ocasio-Cortez tended bar during the very busy Cinco de Mayo celebration in 2017.
At the end of the night, when it came time to split the $560 in tips she had gotten at the bar, Ocasio-Cortez gave the waitress only $50. After the waitress complained to her manager, her take was doubled to $100, a source said.
“It says so much about her character,” said my source. “From that point on, I wouldn’t talk to her. I couldn’t look at her.”
Yep, it seems that Ocasio-Cortez is yet another so-called socialist who take yours while enriching herself.
