'Where's Mitch?': Ocasio-Cortez and Fellow Democrats Search High and Low to Demand McConnell Hold Vote to End Shutdown

The House Democrats called on the Senate Majority Leader to "end this manufactured crisis and allow our devoted federal workers to get back to work for the American people"

With the economic pain and dire safety risks caused by the record-long government shutdown becoming clearer by the day, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and a group of her fellow freshman House Democrats marched to the Senate building on Wednesday to hand-deliver a letter demanding that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) immediately hold a vote to reopen the government.

'Where's Mitch?' AOC And Friends Hunt Down Mitch McConnell
It's a new game! "Where's Mitch," AOC asks, as she and several of her colleagues go on a hunt to try and find him so they can get the government reopened.

lexandria Ocasio-Cortez and some of her colleagues are tired of Senator Mitch McConnell shirking his duty and causing a lot of people a lot of pain by making them work with no paychecks. They went on a hunt for him. A "Where's Mitch" hunt.

In her own words: "We have voted over and over to reopen the government. Now we're on the senate side. We're roving out. The senate side because the thing is we went to his office in the Capitol. we went to the his office in the Russell building, the cloak room...He's not in the Capitol, he's not in the Russell building, the floor of the senate and 800,000 people don't have their paychecks. So where's Mitch?"

Please note: I left out the part where Crooks and Liars suggested that the House folks check the sandbox where the turtles hang out.
