Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been caught red-handed. She thought no one would find out.
But AOC has been slapped with a huge ethics violation that could end her career for good.
Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is the de facto “leader” of the Democrat “Squad” that includes AOC, Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and several others.
Most Americans believe that these Democrat House members aren’t exactly the sharpest tools in the shed, and for good reason.
AOC seems to lack a basic understanding of American economics while Ilhan Omar is flat out clueless on, well, everything.
But that doesn’t mean they aren’t doing anything. The so-called “progressive” wing of the Democrat Party has taken way more of a foothold in not only the Democrat Party, but also Congress as a whole.
The “Squad” members are figureheads for the radical “progressive” Left that is allegedly more anti-establishment.
AOC regularly tries to call out the “rich” and “corrupt elites”, but she just recently exposed herself as nothing more than a hypocrite and a part of the Washington D.C. Swamp.
Back in 2021, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went viral on the internet for the dress she wore at the Met Gala that year that said “tax the rich.”
The dress itself was apparently worth thousands of dollars, and she was largely laughed at for her lack of optics. She couldn’t possibly fathom why it was ironic that an elite Congress member who is financially well off and able to pay for a dress that costs thousands of dollars that said “tax the rich” was rubbing shoulders with other super rich and famous people at the Met Gala.

Her disguise of being “one of the little guys” was blown to bits that day. But there’s more to the story of her hypocrisy and corruption that day at the Met Gala in 2021.
According to reports, The Office of Congressional Ethics has announced that AOC likely violated rules of ethics that day by accepting “impermissible gifts” at the Met Gala.
The ethics board voted unanimously, 5-0, to affirm the report that she had probably committed ethics violations.
The report says that she “may have violated House rules, standards of conduct, and federal law.” Furthermore, the ethics board recommended an investigation be launched into her probable acts of ethics and federal law violations.

The Office of Congressional Ethics is completely independent and non-partisan, so a 5-0 vote is pretty damning for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and likely spells trouble in her near future.
If an investigation finds that she is guilty, it will seriously damage her integrity as a politician who is supposedly “anti-corruption” and “for the people.”
Of course, Conservatives have long known that AOC is just playing her part and will do anything to get power just like most of the Washington, D.C. Swamp, but she will then have to contend with her own voting base that will start to view her differently.
It could lead to her facing tougher races every two years in her New York Congressional seat, potentially leaving the seat vulnerable to a tough race against a Conservative Republican.
We just watched in the 2022 midterms a number of Democrats in both New York and California fall at the ballot boxes to Republicans when their seats were supposedly “safe” from the start. Could we be seeing the downfall of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s political career? We’ll find out soon enough.
