Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who has a habit of blocking many people on Twitter when she does not have answers is being sued by a fellow Dem.
Former New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind filed a suit against the freshman Dem for blocking people on her page.
Dems pushed the issue by suing President Donald Trump for blocking people on Twitter and now those actions, may just jump up and bite her back.
“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has blocked me on Twitter yesterday apparently because my critique of her tweets and policies have been too stinging,” he said.
“Just today the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed a ruling that elected officials cannot block individuals from their Twitter accounts, thereby setting a precedent that Ocasio-Cortez must follow,” he said.
“Twitter is a public space, and all should have access to the government officials on it,” he said in filing the lawsuit against the representative.
“It’s unclear if Ocasio-Cortez is aware of this ruling or not, but either way, I have decided, after speaking with my legal counsel, to initiate a lawsuit against her for blocking me and a host of other public figures.
“Ocasio-Cortez is acting cowardly and should be ashamed of her attempts to silence me. I’ve done nothing but address her ignorance and disregard for the truth.
“She constantly brags about the millions of followers she has but is afraid of my speech. She is a hypocrite,” he said.
“I’m looking forward to the day where she has to unblock me so that free speech in America is guaranteed even when it offends!” he said.
The complaint seeks an injunction against Ocasio-Cortez, a declaration that she violated the First Amendment, and an award of attorney’s fees. The complaint focuses on Ocasio-Cortez’s popular and active @AOC account, with more than 4.6 million followers.
