'Girl from the Bronx' Ocasio-Cortez called out in fact check

Posted July 04, 2018

Her campaign biography states that her father was a small business owner and that "she grew up in a working-class household where her mother cleaned homes and everyone pitched in on the family business".

Ocasio-Cortez's victory led to the appearance of Cori Bush, running for Missouri's 1st congressional district, on MSNBC in a segment called "The New Faces of the Democratic Party". On the right, she's portrayed as a radical extremist leading the Democrats over a cliff.

While the picture of the Yorktown Heights home is indeed the one Ocasio-Cortez grew up in, Cardillo incorrectly stated that she went to Brown University.

But he argued that Ocasio-Cortez's campaign platform illustrates the necessary ideological diversity in the party.

He told MSNBC of Ocasio-Cortez's win that "time will tell, but I think what we've seen in elections across the country are candidates who won by focusing on the issues that were keeping their constituents up at night".

"I'm an educator, I'm an organizer", she continued.

According to the Democratic congressional candidate's website, she attended a public school in Yorktown growing up because of the "state of the Bronx public schools in the late 80s and early 90s".

PEREZ: "Well, my daughters -I have three kids - two of whom - one just graduated college, one is in college and they were both texting me about their excitement over Alexandria".

Ocasio-Cortez's brother's description differs from photos of the houses tweeted by Cardillo: "I owned & sold that home".

Following her victory, Ocasio-Cortez became an overnight celebrity, attracting social media shout-outs from Bette Midler, Mindy Kaling, and Cynthia Nixon, a Democratic candidate for governor. "She embodied so much of what we wanted to accomplish".
