AOC's constituents may struggle to talk to an actual human when they call her offices: 'She has no plans to serve the people'

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is the least accessible representative in New York City, with her Washington, D.C., and her New York City offices utilizing filtering systems that prevent callers from speaking to an actual person, according to the New York Post.

The Post called the offices of each of the 13 lawmakers representing New York City, and all the offices of each of those lawmakers had a person answering the phone — except Ocasio-Cortez's offices. A congressional Democratic aide accused Ocasio-Cortez of not caring about her constituents.

"She has no plans to serve the people. That's why she has no constituent services operation," the aide told The Post. "If you're a grandma in Queens who needs help with her Medicare and you call AOC's 'district office' you get a recording that tells you to visit the website instead. What kind of elitist nonsense is that? Shameful, it's all shameful."

She went from net worth of 80k to several million. Probably has a multi million dollar movie and book deal in the works. If she wins again she will be in the 40 minute net worth range. Not bad for civil service job.
