AOC’s Surprising Outburst, This Will Crack You Up

New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is facing questions over her attendance at the 2021 Met Gala, where she wore a dress emblazoned with the words “Tax the Rich.”

The House Office of Congressional Ethics has found “substantial reason to believe” that Ocasio-Cortez may have violated federal law by accepting “impermissible gifts” in connection with the event.

The controversy centers on the cost of the dress, which was reportedly rented for $1,200, as well as other accessories and services provided to the congresswoman. Ocasio-Cortez has denied any wrongdoing and maintains that she paid for everything herself.

However, the ethics panel has recommended that the matter be referred to the House Committee on Ethics for further review. If the allegations are found to be true, Ocasio-Cortez could be in violation of House rules and federal law.

The congresswoman has been a vocal advocate for progressive policies and has frequently criticized the wealthy and powerful for not paying their fair share.

Her appearance at the Met Gala, which is known for its opulence and exclusivity, sparked a fierce debate about the role of wealth and privilege in American society.
