Whoopi Goldberg and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Melissa Stewart, a state Workers Compensation Board spokeswoman, told the Daily News that the Ocasio-Cortez campaign coverage lasted from March 31 to April 30 past year and it already paid the fine.

The failure to provide workers' compensation coverage lasted one month, as noted by Stewart, but that was enough for fellow Democrats to voice concern over the report and critics of the young rep to highlight the lack of coverage as evidence of "hypocrisy". She's pro-labor, pro-equality, supports taxing the ultra-rich to pay for vital government programs and infrastructure, and champions the working class and minorities.

Ocasio-Cortez was just 10 years old when Lieberman ran for vice president along with Gore.

When asked by Anderson Cooper on CBS's 60 Minutes, whether Trump "is a racist", she responded: "Yeah, yeah no question".
