On Thursday, Eddie Scarry, the media reporter for a conservative outlet the Washington Examiner, was blasted on Twitter after posting a candid image of Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) attempting to criticize her outfit.
Ocasio-Cortez has been outspoken about her financial situation, and how she lacks the funds to afford a Washington D.C. apartment.
Scarry said Ocasio-Cortez didn't appear to lack money since she had on a nice outfit. Scarry, has a history of taking unwanted photos of women. "Most notably, at parties that took place on the weekend of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner last year, Mr. Scarry surreptitiously snapped two shots of women’s posteriors and posted the photos on FishbowlDC," The Observer reported.
"Hill staffer sent me this pic of Ocasio-Cortez they took just now. I’ll tell you something: that jacket and coat don’t look like a girl who struggles," he tweeted.
Twitter roasted Scarry for his comment.
