Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., slammed Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-K.Y., over a lewd “choking & groping” photo that went viral on Monday night.
The picture shows a group of young conservatives wearing “Team Mitch” shirts at a recent rally with a cardboard cutout of Ocasio-Cortez, shared by the social media user “feminist next door.”
A number of the young men are giving a “thumbs down” to the camera. One is pretending to kiss and hug Ocasio-Cortez; another is mimicking a choking grip around the cutout’s neck.

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “Hey [Mitch McConnell] — these young men look like they work for you.”
“Just wanted to clarify: are you paying for young men to practice groping & choking members of Congress w/ your payroll, or is this just the standard culture of #TeamMitch?”

The tweet comes just one day after Ocasio-Cortez attacked McConnell for declining to call the Senate back from recess for an emergency vote on new gun control laws.

“The House passed HR8, a Bipartisan Background Checks Act, *5 months ago* and the Senate has yet to vote on it. It was one of our 1st major priorities after ending the gov shutdown. You’ve been sitting on it since February giving bogus excuses. Care to explain [to] the people why?” the New York socialist tweeted on Sunday, in response to McConnell’s tweet offering his condolences on the shooting in El Paso, Texas this weekend.
The entire nation is horrified by today's senseless violence in El Paso. Elaine's and my prayers go out to the victims of this terrible violence, their families and friends, and the brave first responders who charged into harm’s way.
