Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is currently under a massive House ethics investigation which was launched by the House Committee on Ethics on Wednesday.
According to Fox, the panel is going to detail their plan of action after they hold an organizational meeting at the start of Congress in 2023.
Sadly, the details of the investigation are currently being withheld from the public.
It’s important to understand that while it is currently unknown what Ocasio-Cortez is being investigated for, rumors are circulating that she is under investigation for accepting an “impermissible gift” by going to the Met Gala which costs upwards of $35,000 per ticket. This is currently just speculation, there is no evidence that AOC accepted any unauthorized gifts.
Democrat Susan Wild and Republican Michael Guest noted that the disclosure of the new investigation “does not itself indicate that any violation has occurred, or reflect any judgment on behalf of the committee.”
In the past, Ocasio-Cortez defended her decision to attend the Met Gala and said, “New York elected officials are routinely invited to and attend the Met due to our responsibilities in overseeing and supporting the city’s cultural institutions for the public. I was one of several in attendance in this evening.”
