This isn’t good at all. Representative Alexandria Ocasio- Cortez is currently under investigation by the House Ethics Committee.
Susan Wild, Democratic Rep. of Pennsylvania announced in a statement that they are continuing to investigate the matter that was bought to them in June. Right now, it has not been revealed why AOC is under investigation.
“We are confident that this matter will be dismissed,” Lauren Hitt, Ocasio-Cortez’s spokesperson said. “The Congresswoman has always taken ethics incredibly seriously, refusing any donations from lobbyists, corporations, or other special interests. We are confident that this matter will be dismissed,” she added.
AOC has been known for calling out politics and corporations for corruption as well as rejecting Political Action Money and other things. Although Ocasio-Cortez is being investigated it doesn’t mean that she has committed any violations.
“The mandatory disclosure of such an extension and the name of the subject of the matter, does not itself indicate that any violation has occurred, or reflect any judgment on behalf of the Committee.” the committee chair wrote.
