Writer Luke Thompson was temporarily suspended by Twitter for calling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez out on giving her boyfriend a job in her Congressional office.
Ocasio-Cortez responded to Thompson’s claim by saying that he only has an account so that he can access her schedule.
“Actually this cal designation is a permission so he can have access to my Google Cal. Congressional spouses get Gcal access all the time. Next time check your facts before you tweet nonsense,” Ocasio-Cortez responded — though her claim was quickly debunked by the writer.
Thompson responded by noting that he is listed in the directory as “staff” — not as a boyfriend or spouse. He additionally noted that the House doesn’t use Google.
Thompson also posted a link to Roberts’ LinkedIn profile — causing the boyfriend to quickly delete his entire profile.
