Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Lesson on Campaign Corruption Is the Most-Viewed Twitter Video of Any Politician

A recent video of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been making its rounds on the internet for all the right reasons. The clip, compiled by NowThisNews, shows the New Yorker asking a series of questions during a House committee hearing that illustrate the flawed nature of U.S. campaign laws.

Not only has the clip grabbed Americans’ attention, but the video has also soared to at least 37.5 million views, as of this writing. That places it as the most-viewed Twitter video of any politician, according to Jon Laurence of NowThisNews.

Considering the brevity of Ocasio-Cortez’s term, it’s an impressive stat for a freshman member of Congress. On top of that, the viral clip has garnered over 47,000 retweets and 121,000 likes, and sits at number 41 among the most-viewed Twitter videos of all time.
