The House Ethics Committee has just announced that they are conducting an investigation into Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez.
In a statement released this afternoon, the committee revealed that “the Acting Chairwoman and Acting Ranking Member of the Committee on Ethics have jointly decided to extend the matter rearding Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, which was transmitted to the Committee by the office of Congressional Ethics on June 23, 2022,” though the officials omitted the specific reason for the investigation.
“The Committee notes that the mere fact of a referral or an extension, and 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 judgement on behalf of the Committee,” the statement continues.

“The Committee will announce its course of action in this matter following its organizational meeting and adoption of Committee Rules in the 118th Congress.”
While the reason for the investigation is still unclear, a spokesperson for AOC told media outlets that she believes the case will be dismissed and insisted that AOC has never taken any inappropriate money.
“The Congresswoman has always taken ethics incredibly seriously, refusing any donations from lobbyists, corporations or other special interests,” the spokesperson told Newsweek.
Last year, AOC received an ethics complaint over her attendance at the Met Gala, where she wore a “tax the rich” dress.
“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,” AOC said in defense of herself at the time. “I was one of several in attendance in this evening.”

AOC, Omar, Tlaib, Waters, Pelosi, Schaffer and others too numerous to name should be under investigation.

I am betting most have met their demise after being tried at GITMO. Making someone look like someone else is very easy nowadays, and there are a lot of actors running around on the hill.

WHAT! AOC didn’t take money from any special groups? How the heck did she get into Congress to begin with SOROS MONEY! How about all the campaign money her boyfriend’s business got, at that time, who was also writing her stupid liberal speeches that made her sound stupid! Its about time the ethnic committee is finally doing something about this misuse of campaign funds. Its about 5 years too late.

Of course, NOTHING will be done to Commiecrat unethical scum like AOC.

The spineless GOP will simply provide strongly worded reprimands and nothing of consequence will come of it. It seems like lots of investigations go on but no one is every punished.

No nothing will happen to anyone, the RePUSSYcans will act tough, ask a lot of questions which will be unanswered. Then they will ask Pelosi what they should do just like they always do. You all just better realize our government has taken over and are coming after us on the Right. Because WE will not conform and or submit to communism. We cannot even vote these TRAITORS out and everyone in there is a TRAITOR. Because most of the RePUSSYcans are RINO’S and it was just proven with McCarthy being caught helping the Democrats cheat by Laundering money to them to help get the Traitors elected. So any money you gave to the RePUSSYcans went to help the Democrats. TRAITORS everywhere in DC.

Nothing will happen. Unlike worthless RINOs, Democrats will circle the wagon and always protect their own. And compliant fake news MSM will faithfully do their bidding.
