Democrat New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was identified as a “Westchester County voter” in an April 2016 Young Turks segment, proving that she is registered to vote at an address in Westchester County, not in the Bronx.
Ocasio-Cortez is facing scrutiny after she claimed that she lives in an apartment in the Bronx, just not the one that she moved out of without telling anyone for safety concerns. Ocasio-Cortez said that she will not publicly disclose her new supposed Bronx address. She also lives in a luxury apartment in Washington, D.C. Ocasio-Cortez grew up in Yorktown Heights and attended Yorktown High School in Westchester County, undercutting her Girl From the Bronx public image. (h/t notwokieleaks)

Incoming New York Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is clearly rattled by persistent reporting on her plush suburban upbringing, which undercuts her well-honed image as a working-class girl from the Bronx.
Ocasio-Cortez fired back at the facts with social-justice rhetoric, accusing a recent fact-teller of “mansplaining” her childhood to her. But Ocasio-Cortez did, in fact, grow up in Yorktown Heights in Westchester County.
Ocasio-Cortez’s father reportedly bought the house in Yorktown Heights when the socialist was approximately two years old. She reportedly moved from Parkchester, in the Bronx, to Yorktown Heights when she was five years of age. A glowing New York Times profile of the socialist starlet said the family moved to Westchester County “in search of better schools.”
Thus, the family of Ocasio-Cortez, who attended Yorktown High School, actively rejected the Bronx.
Investigative reporter John Cardillo of Newsmax TV is not letting Ocasio-Cortez off the hook.
[email protected] every word he wrote is accurate.
You grew up in an affluent Westchester suburb, not the Bronx. You flat out lied.
I spent more time on the streets of the south Bronx than you, so please slow your roll Congresswoman. https://t.co/6zmnmVm2RE

Ocasio-Cortez is already struggling to maintain her Bronx-bred image in the world of Washington.
