New York Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has come under fire for claiming to be a “girl from the Bronx” when she actually grew up in a wealthy suburb in upstate New York.
And now it appears that she may have gone by a completely different name when she was in high school.
In an exclusive to The Gateway Pundit, old yearbook photographs of Ocasio-Cortez not only show that she went to a fancy high school, she also appears to have gone by a different name.
TGP reports that an “anonymous classmate” reached out to them and provided photos of Ocasio-Cortez from high school.
The outlet claims that the classmate attended and graduated from Yorktown High School, which is where Ocasio-Cortez went.
Ocasio-Cortez graduated in 2007 from Yorktown Heights, which is a middle-to-upper class area in Westchester County in upstate New York City.
Below is an image of Ocasio-Cortez in the yearbook.
Another image from the alleged yearbook appears to show that Alexandria went by “Sandy Ocasio.”
Below are two more images from the yearbook:
The alleged classmate reportedly told TGP that Yorktown High School had an “excellent” educational program, was well funded, and that students even had access to Putnam Northern Westchester BOCES, which is a trade school.
According to Trulia, the average price of a home in Yorktown goes for $477,000. That’s almost half a million dollars for a home, which signifies how nice of an area she grew up in.
The yearbook photos coupled with the fact that it Alexandria appears to have gone by the name “Sandy” in high school comes after she was busted last week misleading about her upbringing.
The 29-year-old socialist took to Twitter to share a photograph of the new plaque outside of her office in the U.S. Capitol.
“Don’t be fooled by the plaques that we got, I’m still / I’m still Alex from the Bronx,” she captioned the tweet.
