Tell me she isn't honest. This is the type of naivete that can get someone killed. If Hillary was POTUS, they would find AOC dead on a park bench somewhere.

An internal review recently found that 52 members of congress and 182 senior staffers have violated the STOCK Act.

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pushed back against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's rejection of a ban on members of Congress from trading and holding individual stock while in office. In a series of tweets on Friday evening, Ocasio-Cortez reiterated her prior opposition to members trading individual stock while in office, writing that the practice is inappropriate when members "write major policy and have access to sensitive information."

"There is no reason members of Congress should hold and trade individual stock when we write major policy and have access to sensitive information. There are many ways members can invest w/o creating an actual or appeared conflict of interest, like thrift savings plans or index funds."

But nobody is forcing them to invest in stocks or use the information to their advantage.  Has she ever heard off ethics? Oh wait…my bad, she’s a liberal…she hasn’t.
