WASHINGTON – It’s been a whirlwind of excitement for newly elected lawmakers this week as they get acquainted with the building that will likely be a second home: the U.S. Capitol.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s first two days in the nation’s capital have been an adventure. The 29-year-old, who was the youngest Congresswoman ever elected, was mistaken for an intern her first day and Thursday, her second day, was criticized over her attire through a tweet that was later deleted.
“People keep giving me directions to the spouse and intern events instead of the ones for members of Congress,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote Wednesday afternoon on Twitter.
