(NationalSentinel) Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) called out Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) over a viral photo showing a group of young men ‘groping’ and ‘choking’ a cardboard cut-out of her while wearing “Team Mitch” t-shirts.

“Hey @senatemajldr – these young men look like they work for you,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

“Just wanted to clarify: are you paying for young men to practice groping & choking members of Congress w/ your payroll,” she asked, “or is this just the standard culture of #TeamMitch?”

The picture in question was posted on Facebook and then shared by a Twitter user named @emrazz.

“Break me off a piece of that,” the caption reads.

The picture emerged following Ocasio-Cortez’s attempt to blame McConnell for the shootings in El Paso and Dayton, Ohio by not calling a Senate vote on a Democrat gun control measure passed in February that strips away Second Amendment rights.

“The House passed HR8, a Bipartisan Background Checks Act, *5 months ago* and the Senate has yet to vote on it,” she tweeted. “It was one of our 1st major priorities after ending the gov shutdown. You’ve been sitting on it since February giving bogus excuses. Care to explain the people why?”

That tweet came in response to one from the Majority leader, who fell and broke his shoulder this week, in which he expressed condolences for the shooting victims and their families.

“The entire nation is horrified by today’s senseless violence,” said the majority leader. “Elaine’s and my prayers go out to the victims of this terrible violence, their families and friends, and the brave first responders who charged into harm’s way.”
