Far left Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now being investigated by the House Ethics Committee.
She allegedly accepted gifts in an inappropriate fashion in 2021.
This couldn’t happen to a nicer lady.

BUSTED: House Ethics Committee Launches Bipartisan Investigation Into AOC
The House Ethics Committee is launching a bipartisan investigation into Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.), the panel announced Wednesday.
The committee did not disclose the nature of its investigation, which was jointly launched by acting committee chairwoman Susan Wild (D., Pa.) and acting ranking member Michael Guest (R., Miss.). But Ocasio-Cortez has faced numerous allegations of ethical impropriety during her time in Congress, including the possibility that she improperly accepted gifts ahead of the 2021 Met Gala.
A spokesperson for Ocasio-Cortez said she is confident the matter will be dismissed. “The Congresswoman has always taken ethics incredibly seriously, refusing any donations from lobbyists, corporations, or other special interests,” the spokesperson told Forbes.
Watchdogs say the Democratic firebrand violated House ethics rules when she “borrowed” jewelry and a glitzy custom-made “tax the rich” gown for the 2021 Met Gala. Ocasio-Cortez also impermissibly accepted free tickets to the event for her and her then-boyfriend, Riley Roberts, the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust and National Legal and Policy Center watchdog groups alleged in their respective ethics complaints.
Ocasio-Cortez did not report receiving any gifts connected to her attendance at the Met Gala in her 2021 financial disclosure. She did, however, disclose receiving a $3,057.04 engagement ring from Roberts.
This is a very bad look for a member of Congress.

AOC should face criminal charges if anything is discovered in her ethics investigation.

The worst news for AOC is that Republicans are about to take over the House.
