Ethics Complaints Begin to Pile Up Over AOC & Her Boyfriend’s Expensive Stunt at the Met Gala

Socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now facing ethics complaints after she attended the Met Gala in a “Tax the Rich” dress which set the internet on fire.

Ocasio-Cortez wants you, the American people, to think that she is one of you, a member of the working class. This couldn’t be further from the truth. The socialist representative is now facing two ethics complaints for the $30,000 tickets to the event that were somehow acquired by her and her boyfriend as she partied with unmasked elites.

On Thursday, the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) joined the American Accountability Foundation (AAF) and filed an ethics complaint for how Ocasio-Cortez accepted the expensive tickets and lavish gifts that come with an event like the Met Gala.

The Gateway Pundit reported:

AAF filed a complaint on Tuesday saying that Ocasio-Cortez violated House Ethics rules by accepting “an impermissible gift” of the highly coveted tickets.

The NLPC took things even further in their complaint, which was filed with the Office of Congressional Ethics. According to a report from the Daily Caller, the organization argued that Ocasio-Cortez’s acceptance of free tickets for both herself and her boyfriend violated gift rules. They also stated that she recieved a prohibited gift from a paid attendee at the gala by sitting at their sponsored table — which are valued at up to $300,000.

“Representative Ocasio-Cortez may have violated the House Gift Rule by accepting free admission for herself and boyfriend to the Met Gala event and receiving related gifts before, during, or after the event, including the use of custom-designed dress, limousine service, the use of the Carlyle Hotel, professional hair and makeup services, and any other related services or goods,” stated the NLPC’s complaint.

“In short, it is the table sponsor who is gifting or underwriting a coveted seat to AOC at the Gala,” the complaint continued. “And if the sponsor of 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.”

Spokesperson for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a charity that receives proceeds of the Met Gala, says everything is totally fine because AOC was a “guest of the museum.”

“Thus, because her boyfriend is not her ‘spouse or dependent,’ her acceptance of an ‘invite plus one’ to the Met Gala would violate the Gift Rule unless AOC or her boyfriend paid for his $35,000 ticket, an unlikely scenario,” the NLPC’s complaint continues.
