Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is criticizing the presence of lobbyists at a traditional bipartisan orientation program for newly elected Congressional lawmakers.
'Our 'bipartisan' Congressional orientation is cohosted by a corporate lobbyist group. Other members have quietly expressed to me their concern that this wasn’t told to us in advance,' Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Thursday. 'Lobbyists are here. Goldman Sachs is here. Where‘s labor? Activists? Frontline community leaders?'
