(Alternet) -- Just when one thinks that attacks on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from Republicans and others on the right cannot become any more idiotic, someone surprises us—and the latest culprit is author/banker John LeFevre, who attacked the 29-year-old Democratic congresswoman on Twitter for allegedly having had a low credit score and asserted that she shouldn’t be on the House Financial Services Committee because of it. Ocasio-Cortez’ past credit scores, of course, are irrelevant to how she performs in Congress; registered Democrats who voted for her in Queens and the Bronx in November could care less what Equifax, Experian or TransUnion thinks of her. But the fact that LeFevre even brought it up not only underscores his elitist, classist mentality—it also shows how silly the attacks on her have been. And Ocasio-Cortez summed it up perfectly when she tweeted, on February 8, “This stuff is really sad. The GOP is so intellectually bankrupt that they no longer engage to debate issues in good faith.”
But that was hardly the only time Ocasio-Cortez has been attacked for something that isn’t even remotely relevant. Here are some of the silliest, most pathetic attacks on the New York City congresswoman.
