AOC Gets Smacked With Another Ethics Complaint

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been hit with a second ethics complaint after attending the exclusive Met Gala earlier this week. The conservative watchdog group, National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) filed the complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics alleging AOC improperly accepted the tickets for herself and her boyfriend.

Fox News reports:

House rules allow members to take free tickets to charity events directly from event organizers, and The Post reported Tuesday that AOC and boyfriend Riley Roberts were directly invited by the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

However, the NLPC argued that “it is the table sponsor who is gifting or underwriting a coveted seat to AOC at the Gala.

“And if … the table where AOC sat was one paid for by one of [the] corporations attending the event, such as Instagram or Facebook, AOC has received a prohibited gift from the corporation that also lobbies Congress.”

The complaint further alleged that the borrowed white Brother Vellies gown worn by AOC — which featured the words “Tax The Rich” scrawled on the back in red lettering — constituted an impermissible gift because it was “directly related to AOC’s ‘position with the House’ as a highly visible and controversial Member.”

Earlier this week, the conservative American Accountability Foundation also filed an ethics complaint regarding AOC’s attendance at the Met Gala. AOC has argued that her attendance is part of her “responsibilities in overseeing our city’s cultural institutions that serve the public.”


  1. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin just like the rest of the biden misfits, hide behind the drapes don’t want to testify before Congress what a bunch of gutless wimps, no balls , always some one else fault never their own, standard procedure, unfortunate mistake,we don’t take advise, were biden misfits.These guys should spend their live in jail for leaving Americans on the battlefield.
    Fellow American:
    2,352 U.S. Military Personnel, dead.
    66,000 Afghan military and police, dead.
    47,245 Afghan civilians, dead.
    494 Humanitarian Aid Workers, dead.
    $2.3 Trillion in American Taxpayer money, gone.
    All of this, borne by the American people in defense of Afghanistan, only for us to leave in disgrace and leave billions of dollars in American equipment behind for the Taliban to use.
    Memorial
    500,000 Assault weapons, left behind.
    22,000 Humvee combat vehicles, left behind.
    42,000 SUVs, left behind.
    Dozens of UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters left behind.
    This is what Joe Biden calls a “success.” It is pathetic.

    1. That was no victorious war and withdrawal, it was a crushing DEFEAT. Inflicting those kind of casualties and capturing that much equipment is something the VICTORIOUS forces do. Yet Obidma and the Media Mouthpieces claim our involvement was successful and our “withdrawal” was peaceful.

      No it wasn’t. The way it ended was that we got our azzez kicked!

      Thanks Democrats! You’ve inflicted another defeat on the Home Team!

        1. True, but our allies won’t see that. All they will see is the US turning tail and running away leaving them in the lurch. In their place, would you trust us again? The Democrats are digging us a hole we may never climb out of again. And, yes, that IS intentional.

        2. Sadsack Osama, Mohammedan Mulatto, the man behind the curtain, is helping his Muslim Brothers get a leg up in the game. He awarded them victory.

    1. This horse-arse face will suffer nothing.
      Now, if it was Marjorie T green from GA, she would immediately be kicked out of Congress.
      Such idiots.

      1. No accounting for the poor taste of dim wits. AOC is as ugly inside yet they let her rant and the psycho really draws the psycho fake news. Surprised they don’t tape her in the restrooms. Will admit every thought her pea brain can dream up is always pretty much guaranteed to irritate someone therefore news for them.

          1. The climatologist that work for this worthless government, hand pick the data they want to make money for the demorats. They only go back a1000 years, not several hundred thousands like they should. They would see the pattern then, but it wouldn’t make them look good.

  2. AOC has argued that her attendance is part of her “responsibilities in overseeing our city’s cultural institutions that serve the public.”… That’s not her job she oversees areas where the federal government has oversight. Culture is not one. I thought a congressperson couldn’t moonlight. Hey, Sandy, which job do you want?

    1. Right Paul. She’s made of Teflon, nothing sticks and she has no self esteem. The phony photo shoot at the chain link fence was one of her most despicable stunts.

    1. I’m still waiting for her to be charged with fraud by marrying her brother. If anyone else did this they would be in jail.

  3. By attending this gala, just how does she fulfill her responsibility to oversee her district’s cultural institutions that serve the public? I would think that requires something more substantial than simply attending a social fund-raising event. Free tickets, borrowed clothes, photo ops with bigwigs … how does that serve her constituency?

  4. cortes has always been the dumbest congressperson in history unless you consider biden, harris, schumer, shiff, waters, pelousy.. The biggest group; of anti americans in US history,. C’mon dummies wake up!

  5. Imagine attending an event mainly ran by the rich and claiming they should pay more taxes? Only AOC would think this was the right venue!
