Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was just hauled into court. It has finally happened, and Trump fans everywhere are cheering. She’s in big trouble now.
According to reports, a former member of the New York legislature, Dov Hikind, has sued Rep. Ocasio-Cortez for blocking him on Twitter. Hikind is also a resident of the congresswoman’s district.
Ironically, a recent court ruling against President Trump blocking critics on Twitter helped make Hikind’s lawsuit against Ocasio-Cortez possible. As Hikind noted, the ruling sets “a precedent that Ocasio-Cortez must follow.”
“It’s unclear if Ocasio-Cortez is aware of this ruling or not, but either way, I have decided, after speaking with my legal counsel, to initiate a lawsuit against her for blocking me and a host of other public figures,” Hikind continued.
Hikind also noted the congresswoman’s double-standard. “She constantly brags about the millions of followers she has but is afraid of my speech,” he said. “She is a hypocrite.”
Hikind is a Jewish man and a prominent pro-Israel activist in New York. He has particularly taken Ocasio-Cortez to task for her ignorant, anti-Israel rhetoric — something she apparently could not stand.
