RedState reported a week ago on how “Libs of TikTok” founder Chaya Raichik recently visited Capitol Hill in order to try and confront Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) over an inflammatory lie AOC told about her during a February House Oversight Committee hearing on “Twitter’s Role in Suppressing the Biden Laptop Story.”
To quickly recap, AOC said during the hearing that Raichik’s claims about how Boston Children’s Hospital was providing so-called gender-affirming care including hysterectomies to minors were lies that brought “incitement” of violence upon the hospital:
Ms Ocasio-Cortez asked Twitter’s former head of safety Yoel Roth why the account was not suspended “despite inspiring a bomb threat due to the right-wing incitement of violence against trans Americans.” Mr Roth said that “regrettably” the account remained active.
The only falsehood, however, was AOC’s, as the hospital had already gone on record with a webpage boasting of their services.
In essence, AOC smeared Raichik, and during her initial visit to D.C., the only person Raichik got to talk to about the ethics complaint she’d filed was one of AOC’s handlers, and even that was very brief as the handler scurried off and never returned.
This time around when Raichik visited, she bumped into AOC and posed for a picture with her… before letting her know who she was and that she had lied about her and was being hit with an ethics complaint.
Watch below as AOC makes a cowardly move by again insulting Raichik in calling her a “transphobe” before running away instead of addressing the substance of her false allegations about Raichik and admitting she was wrong.
Note: The short version of the clip is at the beginning. A longer version of her confrontation with AOC is towards the end:
BREAKING: I served @AOC with an ethics complaint after she lied about me in a committee hearing. AOC wasn’t in her office but then I bumped into her as I was leaving the Capitol!

It just absolutely never fails with these people. They get to say whatever they want to as powerful lawmakers about private citizens no matter how false, and then when those citizens fight back, the lawmakers run away just as fast as they can.
This is about par for the course for AOC, who uses Twitter and her perches on various committees as ways to bully people without having to address them directly. And yet on the rare occasion when one of them has the nerve to call her out directly, she plays the victim.
If your words are the truth, then stick around, stand your ground and defend what you said. If you can’t do that and instead flee the scene to avoid having to explain, you’re just proving your opponent’s point, which is exactly what happened here.
As I’ve often said, Democrats usually at some point get around to revealing who they really are, which AOC perfectly demonstrated with her reaction to being confronted by Raichik.
It’s sad in a way that she had to be punked in order for Raichik to get her attention, but here we are.
