An ethics complaint has been filed against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democrat from New York.
It doesn’t matter what for, all I have to say is IT’S ABOUT TIME.
The particular incident being referred to here is her decision to wear a “TAX THE RICH” dress to a $30,000 PER TICKET event.
The American Accountability Foundation (AAF) filed the complaint, asking the Office of Congressional Ethics to “immediately open an investigation” into whether or not the $30,000 ticket provided to AOC was an “impermissible gift” or not.
“Without prompt investigation and enforcement of Congressional Rules, the American people are likely to lose faith in the ability of Congress to police its members,” the complaint continues.
The AAF is quite sure the Met gala did not fall under either the “widely attended event” or “charity event” clauses that allow politicians to accept tickets to events. The invitations for the event were overseen by Conde Nast, a for-profit company.
