So Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Is Now A Jew?

Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York made a surprise revelation to a progressive Jewish group on the final night of Hannukah on Sunday: She traces her ancestry back to 15th-century Sephardic Jews.

“As is the story of Puerto Rico, we are an amalgamation” she said. Referencing her comments after the event Ocasio-Cortez said “culture isn’t DNA” but added that “to be Puerto Rican is to be a descendent of African Moors + slaves, Taino Indians, Spanish colonizers, Jewish refugees, and likely others.” 

Elizabeth Warren, Rachel Dolezal and Shaun King all probably share a common ancestor.
