In the post, Rispoli said Ocasio-Cortez was a "vile idiot" who "needs a round." 

"And I don't mean the kind she used to serve," Rispoli wrote, apparently referencing the lawmaker's past work as a bartender. 

"This incident, we feel, has been an embarrassment to our department,” Lawson said of the since-deleted post.
