Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez keeps reporting some of the House of Representatives unknown practices. On Wednesday, after leaving a hearing on homelessness, Ocasio saw “tons of people” camped outside in what she thought it was a demonstration.

But no. According to Ocasio-Cortez: “Lobbyists pay the homeless and others to hold their place so they can get in some Committees first.”

“Apparently this is a normal practice, and people don’t bat an eye,” she said. “The first few people in line are guaranteed a seat in a given hearing. Lobbyists and those who can afford it pay people to hold their spot so they get in first.”
