NY congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez angered her constituents by raising $2 million for Texans, while some New Yorkers are without electricity.
Constituents in Ocasio-Cortez's home district, NY-14, say they have no way of contacting the congresswoman because she doesn't have her own office or staff in her district -- even though she received a taxpayer-funded budget to pay for both.
Ocasio-Cortez, also known as AOC, raised $2 million for Texans impacted by winter storm Uri. She rushed to Houston, Texas on Friday for photo ops.
Twitter users were angry that she stood in front of Texas representatives Sheila Jackson Lee (left) and Sylvia Garcia (right) at the microphones.
Constituents in her home district in New York say they haven't seen her in years. They are told to contact her through social media.
Twitter user @WonderKing82 dragged AOC for failing to properly represent the voters who put her in office.
"I call for investigation in Alexanderia Ocasio-Cortez allocation of funds because she took government tax payers funds to open up two congressional offices and she never did. Three years later still no office for her constituents in the Bronx and Queens."
Twitter user Karen Jean wrote: "Pure pandering, You have no empathy for anyone but yourself. Stay in New York, don't those people need your "help" too?"
Twitter user @churchlady320 wrote:
"She claims to have an office. She hasn't staffed it. Had a social worker, someone not knowing how to fight GOP cuts, but I gather she's gone. AOC like every other Rep HAS A BUDGET for her district office. How has that money been spent? We deserve to know."
And @DanaHoule tweeted:
"She's conducting herself and running her operation not as if she's NY-14's Representative, but like she's the United States' At Large Representative. Maybe her constituents will be fine w that. But personally I think she owes them more."
