Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been praised in the liberal press for her “transparency,” particularly on social media.

Just don’t be transparent about her — at least if you worked for her campaign — or you might be hearing from her lawyers.

According to the New York Post, one of the New York Democrat’s former campaign aides is currently feeling the wrath of the AOC legal team after publishing an account of his time working for the liberal freshman congresswoman.

“Ocasio-Cortez’s legal counsel sent a cease and desist letter to Latino activist Ramon Ramirez for his self-published memoir titled ‘Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: The Democrats’ Surprise,’” the Post reported Monday.

The last word of Ramirez’s title has apparently taken on new meaning for him, if his reaction is anything to judge by.

“I’m surprised,” Ramirez said.

“I didn’t say anything against her. I never said anything against her agenda.”

Well, no. However, it’s worth noting that the Democrats’ surprise — and thusly, AOC’s wrath — may be that Ramirez decided to paint Ocasio-Cortez’s victory over now-former Rep. Joe Crowley in the Democratic primary in explicitly racial terms.

“We stripped the Celtic king of a crown that he had received without political or community merit,” Ramirez wrote in the book.

-/Well, no. However, it’s worth noting that the Democrats’ surprise — and thusly, AOC’s wrath — may be that Ramirez decided to paint Ocasio-Cortez’s victory over now-former Rep. Joe Crowley in the Democratic primary in explicitly racial terms.

Of Crowley’s 6-feet, 4-inch height, Ramirez wrote in a draft manuscript that it was “unfortunately proportional to the despotic and solemn air with which he demanded to be revered like the ‘Celtic king.’”

—According to Crowley’s congressional biography, Crowley’s father was a New York City police detective, his mother was an Irish immigrant.

—Ramirez’s book also outlined a bit of dirty trickery from the Ocasio-Cortez : “Ramirez details how he and a fellow official of the Pan-American Democratic Association of Queens, William Salgado, worked with Ocasio-Cortez to circumvent Crowley’s refusal to debate the challenger by scheduling a bilingual June 11 showdown at the Jackson Heights Jewish Center — without informing Crowley’s camp,” the Post reported back in March.

—“Ramirez says he had fliers printed and posted before notifying the opposition, which complained of a scheduling conflict and offered to send a surrogate in Crowley’s place.

—Ramirez also dedicated a significant portion of the book to touting Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist bona fides — he himself is an avowed socialist who brags of studying in Russia — which may perhaps have been another sore point.

The letter demands that “Surprise” and another one of Ramirez’s self-published books be removed from Amazon and other sellers because they “seek to profit off the Congresswoman’s name and likeness, without her involvement or permission,”
