In the realm of celebrity, where a huge Twitter following and media personalities fawning over fashionistas reign, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a superstar. Arguably, she has forced Speaker Nancy Pelosi's hand more than once.

But, when it comes to effective legislating, the New York Democrat is not even a D-lister.

The study found that Ocasio-Cortez introduced 21 bills defined as “substantive,” but her legislation got no action in committees, no floor votes, and none became law. The study's data is gleaned from Congress.gov.

“She introduced a lot of bills, but she was not successful at having them receive any sort of action in committee or beyond committee and if they can’t get through committee they cannot pass the House,” Alan Wiseman, a Vanderbilt political scientist and co-director of the center, told The Post.
