In a message to McConnell on Twitter, Ocasio-Cortez wrote:

Hey @senatemajldr - “These young men look like they work for you. Just wanted to clarify: are you paying for young men to practice groping and choking members of Congress w/ your payroll, or is this just the standard culture of #TeamMitch? Thanks.”

2. Thanks AOC for making me break out in a smile.

Tell it like it is. We have rude, lecherous men with no sense raising young boys to be rude, lecherous men with no sense.
