On Wednesday, socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) responded in solidarity with Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin’s party scandal.
New York Post reports:
Marin, who at 36 is one of the world’s youngest world leaders, came under fire earlier this month after cellphone videos showed her dancing and parting wildly at a private party and a nightclub.
On Monday, almost two weeks after Marin faced backlash, the 32-year-old New York congresswoman tweeted a short clip of herself from 2019 boogying down to Edwin Starr’s classic 1970 hit “War” outside her Capitol Hill office.
“Elected officials who dance? We’re here for it, @marinsanna,” AOC wrote, adding a winking emoji to the caption accompanying the post, which quickly went viral.
AOC originally recorded the video three years prior in response to an online troll’s attempt to embarrass her by leaking a clip of the young politician dancing on the roof of Boston University while she was a student there.
