Title: Where in the world does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez live?
Post by: Elderberry on February 24, 2019, 10:48:33 AM
New York Post by Isabel Vincent, Kevin Fasick and Mary Kay Linge 2/23/2019

She may be America’s most famous freshman congresswoman, but in New York, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a virtual ghost.

She has no district office and no local phone number, unlike the state’s three other freshman members.

And it’s unclear whether the 29-year-old lawmaker, who represents the Bronx and Queens, actually still lives in the Parkchester neighborhood that has been so closely tied to her rise — even though she won her upset victory over fellow Democrat Rep. Joe Crowley with accusations that his home in Virginia made him too Washington-focused to serve his district.

Ocasio-Cortez has used her deceased father’s Bronx condo on her voter registration since 2012, and even posed in the one-bedroom Bronx flat for celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz in a Vogue magazine profile after her stunning November election. But The Post could find little indication she continues to live there.

The Post e-mailed the Ocasio-Cortez’ spokesman, Corbin Trent, four times with specific questions — they were all ignored. On Saturday, The Post reached Corbin by phone.

“We will not be commenting,” he said. Among the queries he refused to answer: Where does the congresswoman live?

On Saturday night, a staffer promised a Post reporter that Ocasio-Cortez would talk to him after a speaking event in Corona.

During the event, two staffers were seen reading an early edition of this story on their phones.

“Come downstairs, I have to take a picture quick,” the congresswoman then told the reporter after the event, instructing him to wait for her. Twenty minutes later, she ducked out a back door, jumped into a chauffeured SUV, and zoomed off.

Ocasio-Cortez was in New York City last weekend and this weekend, with appearances in Queens on both Saturdays — yet she was not seen coming or going from her Parkchester pad either day.

Her apartment’s next-door neighbor said she had never seen Ocasio-Cortez. Another neighbor, who has lived down the hall from the congresswoman’s apartment for the last 40 years, said he’d never seen her or her boyfriend, Riley Roberts, who has claimed the address as his own since last spring.

"Where in the world does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez live?"

Where can you vote?
When I taught Texas Election Law, I asked each group what determines where a person can vote.  I taught many groups in those years, and in all the groups no one answered correctly.

Let's say you own a house in one county, you own another house in another county, you own an apartment in another county, and sometimes you live with another person in an apartment in another county.  Where can you vote?

The answer: You may vote at any place where you can receive mail at a physical address - not a mail box in a post office.  So, you can vote in any of the counties listed above, but you can only vote in ONE of the counties; you have to choose one.  In the apartment situation, living with someone, if you can get mail there, you can vote there.

When I lived in a gated community next to a large lake, I also had a house in another county and that is where I voted.  Later, I sold the other house and just lived at the lake, so I voted there.  We had a number of people who lived in Houston and also had a house in that lake community.  Most of them voted in the county with the lake as they thought their vote would count more in the smaller county.

Now that you know this, you have just passed my course, Election 101.

What about a person that lives with someone, but doesn't get mail there. Instead gets mail "General Delivery" at the Post Office?

Title: Ocasio-Cortez Exposed As Fraud As No Evidence Exists Of Her Supposed Bronx Residency

Ocasio-Cortez Exposed As Fraud As No Evidence Exists Of Her Supposed Bronx Residency


New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has painted a picture of herself as a tough woman from the Bronx but it appears to be a façade.

It has been alleged before that she was raised in the affluent Westchester region of New York and was a fraud.

She has strongly denied those accusations and insisted she was raised in the Bronx and Westchester.

But now that she is a Congresswoman she insists that she resides full time in the Bronx and her brand is built on that premise.

No, must have a physical address of a house, apartment.  Not the post office.

So nomads and vagrants can't vote. That's a good idea. They'd sell their votes anyway.

I had a cousin live in a tipi for a year protecting his crop, but I don't suppose he cared about voting either.

"that neighbors have never met her and mail piles up at her apartment for months"
____________
She gets mail there so she can vote there as long as that is the only place she votes.

Sometimes, due to redistricting, the elected person now lives out of his/her district he/she represented.  They get an apartment in their old district, they can get mail there, and can still be the representative for the district.

Mystery solved: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez covers tracks in address debacle
NY Post, Feb 24, 2019, 8:38 PM

The day after The Post reported that residents said they had never seen her around — and she ducked questions about it after an appearance — her spokesman said the Democratic freshman congresswoman now lives with her boyfriend in a two-bedroom apartment “a block and a half away.’’

The pair relocated there earlier this month, he said.

“She lives in the same neighborhood she’s lived in for years,” said the spokesman, Corbin Trent. “She is not living in the exact same condo.’’

The recent move still didn’t explain why residents at her previous digs — a one-bedroom Bronx condo owned by her mom — insisted they had never seen her there.

US reps and senators are required to have a residence in their home districts.

Ocasio-Cortez, a former bartender-turned-progressive pacesetter, literally ducked questions about her residence after an appearance Saturday in Queens. She told The Post to wait for her to pose for a photograph — then slipped out a back door and into a waiting SUV.

Ocasio-Cortez previously claimed that she has lived since 2011 in a mortgage-free, fourth-floor condo in Parkchester, which according to records was bought by her late dad, Sergio Ocasio, who died in 2008.

After The Post reported a next-door neighbor and another fourth-floor resident saying they have never seen the self-proclaimed socialist living there, Trent denied the residents’ claims, saying her family’s apartment “was home, period, for her,’’ according to the Daily Mail.

Nothing unusual about this at all. Half the politicians in D.C. do not live where they claim to live or they have multiple homes.
Hillary became a Senator of New York having never lived there.
We have an illegal/fraudulent Muslim immigrant who married her brother for citizenship, and nobody is sure where she lived or lives.

This is just another example of how so called 'Rule of Law' does not apply to Democrats in D.C. Nobody will ever prosecute them for anything. And even if somebody tried, no judge would ever convict a Democrat (unless they are told to by the D.C. political machine).
D.C. is anarchy. If you are a Democrat, you can literally do anything you want to with no fear of prosecution.

Hillary and her crew, committed dozens of blatant, obvious, in your face, felonies. Everytime, when she was asked about so called, 'breaking the law', she literally laughed out loud for quite a while until she could stop herself.

This story doesn't bother me except for that part. Last time I checked according to the Green Nazi's, having an SUV is a big no no.

Politics and show business are pretty similar. In both, the role you get depends on your looks and celebrity, with points for actual acting ability, and no points deducted for having a room temperature IQ or whacky opinions. Witness Robert De Niro and Alyssa Milano. Now think of Adam Schiff and Maxine Waters. The actors and politicians could switch roles and no one would be the wiser.

"her spokesman said the Democratic freshman congresswoman now lives with her boyfriend in a two-bedroom apartment 'a block and a half away.'"

As long as the boyfriend's apartment is in the same district she represents, she can use that address to vote there as she can get mail there.  If the boyfriend's apartment is outside the district she represents, she would have to use the address of the condo that IS in the district.
