Alexandria Ocasio Cortez eyes vice ranking member spot on Oversight Committee

 January 30, 2023

Democrat Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York recently revealed her plans for the future.

AOC announced she is "gunning to be the vice ranking member on the House Oversight Committee, which would presumably place her second in line to become the ranking member or chairwoman if Democrats retake the House in 2024," reported Breitbart.

"The 'vice ranking member' position was first created in 2017 to elevate junior members the Democrat Party wants to take on a more public role. Ocasio-Cortez’s appointment to the position would indicate a greater infiltration by the populist left into the establishment," reports Breitbart.

"There’s been conversations, but nothing’s been finalized," Ocasio-Cortez said. "I think I’m going to have a lot of fun on this committee." She added:

Of course, [Republicans are] going to be calling hearings on horrible things, but our job is to protect the people and protect the vulnerable communities that they seek to attack. [I]t gives us an opportunity and a platform to de-legitimize a lot of the disinformation that they’ve been advancing.
