Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Says ExxonMobil Lobbying Tactics ‘Shameful’ and ‘Explosive’

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called ExxonMobil's tactics "shameful" and "explosive" following a report on controversial comments by lobbyist Keith McCoy.

Ocasio-Cortez, a Democrat who represents New York's 14th congressional district, spoke to the U.K.'s Channel 4 News on Thursday, after the network aired undercover video of McCoy discussing lobbying efforts on behalf of the oil and gas giant.

In recordings captured by Greenpeace U.K's investigative platform, Unearthed, McCoy named several senators who were key to ExxonMobil's lobbying operation, including Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV).
