AOC Allegedly Caught Illegally Parking in Front of Whole Foods

By

“Like most celebrities, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) doesn’t always play by the rules. Sources inform the Washington Free Beacon that the socialist congresswoman’s white Tesla was parked illegally outside the Whole Foods near her posh apartment complex in Washington, D.C.,” The Free Beacon reported Thursday.

“Ocasio-Cortez’s office did not immediately return a request for comment on the parking scandal. There is more than sufficient evidence, however, to conclude that the illegally parked white Tesla belongs to her.”

First, the car photographed on Friday had New York plates and a congressional parking pass displayed on the dashboard. AOC revealed to Vanity Fair in an October piece that she’d purchased a car and wasn’t the best with following traffic regulations.

“If it’s alternate side parking in New York City, I put on my pants and some warm clothes and I go move the car,” she said in a video that described her daily routine.

“I actually just got a car and I’m really lucky that I have not gotten a parking ticket in the last two weeks,” she continued. “But about two days or maybe the day after I got my car, I did get pulled over for making a right on 23rd Street when I wasn’t supposed to, but I got a warning.”

It’s not clear whether Ocasio-Cortez was referring to NYC’s alternate-side parking rules (which are notoriously obnoxious) or the fact she’s a regular parking scofflaw. Whatever the case, she apparently has parking issues. Plenty of us do, though — so where’s the evidence this is her?

On one of her many Instagram Live chats, she let on a bit more about the car she purchased: “I usually travel by train, but due to COVID I now drive by car, I travel by car,” she said. “Not a combustion engine vehicle, but I travel by car between New York and D.C.”

The blog Tire Meets Road was able to glean quite a bit from this — namely, that she was likely the owner of a Tesla Model 3 Long Range.
