A police officer in Louisiana suggested in a social media post that Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should be shot, calling the progressive Democratic congresswoman from New York a "vile idiot.".

Before becoming a member of Congress, Ocasio-Cortez worked in a New York City bar as a bartender.

Rispoli, according to NOLA, has been on the Gretna police force since 2005.

The department's police Chief Arthur Lawson told the local news site that the post was "disturbing" and appeared to violate the department's social media policy.

Although he said he did not believe it was an actual threat against the congresswoman, he promised the situation would be dealt with.
