An ex-New York public lawmaker recorded clash against Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Wednesday, appealing it was illegal for the liberal agitator to block him and others on Twitter.
In a court filing, the former New York assemblyman, Dov Hikind, argued that it was illegal for Ocasio-Cortez to block him from her popular official Twitter account given that she uses the account as a public forum where she advocates for her positions and comments about the news cycle.
The suit adds that the freshman congresswoman has blocked others, including student group Students for Trump and Ryan Saavedra, who writes for conservative news outlet The Daily Wire.
Hikind, a “loyal advocate for Jewish causes and the State of Israel” according to the suit, said he was blocked after he “criticized” Ocasio-Cortez’s recent comments comparing custody centres on the southern border to Nazi concentration camps.
The lawsuit comes after a federal appeals court governed Tuesday that President Trump acted unconstitutionally in blocking certain Twitter users from his official account.
