The socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) has been caught in an ethics investigation, and she’s scrambling to deflect blame.
As reported by RedState, the non-partisan Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) found that AOC’s 2021 appearance at the Met Gala broke federal laws for accepting impermissible gifts associated with her night hanging out with celebrities. The cost of admission alone to the Met Gala is $30,000, and the dress was billed at over $40,000.
Fox News reported that AOC responded by pointing the finger at a former staffer, whom she claims had dropped the ball in notifying her that she owed money.
However, the fault ultimately rests with AOC herself, and she should have ensured that all her bases were covered and that she wasn’t breaking federal law.
This investigation reveals the hypocrisy of socialist politicians like AOC, who claim to fight for the common people while engaging in elitist behavior.
AOC’s appearance at the Met Gala, with its exorbitant costs and exclusive guest list, contradicts her supposed stance on taxing the rich. Furthermore, her attempt to deflect blame onto a former staffer is cowardly and shows a lack of accountability.
Passionate Republican voters should take note of AOC’s hypocrisy and hold socialist politicians accountable for their actions. The ethics investigation into AOC is a reminder that politicians on both sides of the aisle should be held to a higher standard and that they should not be exempt from the laws they create.
