(Ing, like Ocasio-Corte, is a member of Democratic Socialists of America.) But Ocasio-Cortez's win is getting them a second look from the news media, which does not want to miss another upset, and donors, who are eager to rally behind another "impossible" cause.

Ocasio-Cortez tells a variation of that story all the time, and for good reason.

Later that afternoon, Ocasio-Cortez responded to the tweet, saying the house was in a town for working people and that she did not attend an Ivy League university.

For one, Ocasio-Cortez never went to Brown.

Yeah, but here's the problem: Sanders did well with working class whites. "I was born in a place where your Zip code determines your destiny".

Ocasio-Cortez urged her supporters in an email to donate to freshman Rep.

Progressive political newcomer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed a conservative TV host on Sunday after her suggested the Democratic congressional candidate for NY lied about where she came from.

As an example, she said, she bumped into two teenagers in the Bronx minutes before the polls closed Tuesday night, who excitedly said they voted for her. She ended the conversation with one more tweet, eviscerating Cardillo for questioning her authenticity. "Your attempt to strip me of my family, my story, my home, and my identity is exemplary of how scared you are of the power of all four of those things", she wrote. "You know, I don't think people wake up in the morning and say, 'I'm a capitalist!'" she added. I completely disagree with her solutions, but she is listening to her community. For now, however, Cortez seems to be focusing on trying to dispel the notion that she's too far left, or something.

Cardillo is staring right at the essence of Ocasio-Cortez's message, but he still can't see it.

In response to the tweet, Ocasio-Cortez first corrected Cardillo, explaining she went to Boston University, not Brown, and then said that her parents worked incredibly hard for the family to be able to live in the small house.
