Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has had another ethics complaint filed against her by the Coolidge Reagan Foundation.

According to IJR:

A conservative group has filed another ethics complaint against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) for her shady professional relationship with her boyfriend, Riley Roberts.

The Coolidge Reagan Foundation — a conservative, First Amendment activist group — filed a complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) against Ocasio-Cortez for misuse of congressional resources relating to interactions with Roberts.

As IJR previously reported, the Coolidge Reagan Foundation also filed a Federal Elections Commission (FEC) complaint against Ocasio-Cortez and her campaign manager-turned-chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, after it was revealed that Chakrabarti’s PAC paid Roberts a total of $6,000 within two months of his LLC being paid $6,191.32 by Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign.

The OCE complaint is unrelated to the campaign payments and instead calls for an investigation into an official mail.house.gov email address provided to Roberts by the congresswoman.

This is the first time that the Congresswoman has been referred to the Congressional Ethics Office.
