Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who became the youngest woman elected to Congress Tuesday, said she cannot afford to rent an apartment in Washington, D.C., until her congressional salary kicks in.

Ocasio-Cortez, 29, made national headlines after she defeated 10-term Rep. Joe Crowley in New York's June primary, and will now represent the state’s 14th Congressional District. She told The New York Times that the transition period from now until she starts her job “will be very unusual, because I can’t really take a salary.”

“I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real,” Ocasio-Cortez told The New York Time

This complaint is common. Someone will step up and lend her the money and probably not actually collect it later.
Some House members have lived in their offices for months at a time because they can't afford housing.
Her naivety is rather entertaining tho, makes you wonder if it's that or a competency issue.

Trump has proven to us all that competence and qualifications are completely irrrlevant in American politics. All that is important are things like "ratings", "media attention", "optics", "branding', "name recognjition", etc, etc.
Actual competence is no longer important.
Thanks asshole!!!

What has that to do with Ms. Cortez? If actual competence was required half or better in Congress wouldn't be there.
