AOC settles lawsuit with former Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov HikindPosted: Updated:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez settled a lawsuit with former Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind on Monday.
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez unblocked Hikind on Twitter and spared herself from having to testify in federal court over why she blocked the former lawmaker.
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez also went on the say that, "Now and in the future, however, I reserve the right to block users who engage in actual harassment or exploit my personal -- campaign account, @AOC, for commercial or other improper purposes."
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez issued an apology to Hikind that read in part, "In retrospect, it was wrong and improper and does not reflect the values I cherish. I sincerely apologize for blocking Mr. Hikind."
