Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says will 'reach out' after Corbyn call uproar

Fiona Onasanya jailed for three months. What happens in Peterborough now? Activist who confronted Jeff Flake over Kavanaugh will attend State of the Union

The activist who confronted a Republican senator in an elevator in the fall during the debate over Brett M. Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court will attend President Trump's State of the Union address as a guest of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).

Just as she does with the parent group, Archila serves as co-executive director at the Center for Popular Democracy Action Fund.

Archila made headlines after TV cameras caught her angry confrontation with Flake in a Senate elevator in September. Christine Blasey Ford accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct dating back to the 1980s and testified against Kavanaugh before the Judiciary Committee.

"Thank you for bringing this to me", replied Ocasio-Cortez to Nehorai. "You're telling me that my assault doesn't matter!" one woman said. Kavanaugh denied all allegations against him.

The duchess wrote on the bananas, "You are strong" and "You are loved", as well as "You are brave" and "You are special". During the breakfast show, he said: "Giving a sex worker a banana is clearly exposing them to potential mockery".

Hours after the encounter, Flake, who had voted to move ahead with Kavanaugh's confirmation, reached across the aisle to delay a floor vote on the confirmation for one week to allow the FBI to investigate Ford's claims.

Ocasio-Cortez, the Democrat representing parts of Queens and the Bronx, tweeted back that the average National Football League salary is $2 million below the $10 million she has suggested in her tax plan. Kavanaugh was confirmed by the Senate 50-48. Ana Maria is the NY14-er who famously jumped into the elevator with Sen. Ocasio-Cortez advocates a 70 per cent marginal tax rate on the wealthiest Americans - a proposal that saw a pushback from conservatives - as well as a so-called Green New Deal, an ambitious programme that aims to mitigate climate change thorough massive investment in green jobs and infrastructure. "Flake to elevate the stories of survivors everywhere", Ocasio-Cortez wrote.

Ocasio-Cortez responded in a tweet, saying "It was an honor to share such a lovely and wide-reaching conversation with you, @jeremycorbyn!".

"I got us matching pins", Ocasio-Cortez told her in a video posted along with the tweet. After the probe failed to produce any compelling evidence of Kavanaugh's guilt, Flake ultimately voted in favor of his confirmation. The congresswoman tells Archila "we can wear them on Tuesday", the day of the President's address to Congress.
