AOC Breaks Silence On Being Under Congressional Investigation…It’s Exactly What You’d Expect

Without a doubt, one of the most intellectually challenged individuals to occupy a seat in the House of Representatives is New York Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a woman with so few brain cells walking and chewing gum at the same time requires the assistance of her fellow staff members. We’re talking about a person who couldn’t figure out how to operate a garbage disposal, didn’t know how many branches of government there are and blew a massive deal with Amazon that cost her district billions of dollars.

And she’s once again making headlines as the New York Democrat is now under congressional investigation. We are blessed, ladies and gentlemen, because AOC has responded to this new investigation by lying through her teeth and saying she takes ethics “incredibly seriously.”

“The Congresswoman has always taken ethics incredibly seriously, refusing any donations from lobbyists, corporations, or other special interests,” Ocasio-Cortez’s office said in a statement responding to news of the investigation. “We are confident that this matter will be dismissed.”

“The House Ethics Committee announced in a statement Wednesday afternoon that Ocasio-Cortez was under investigation over a complaint that they received over the summer,” the Daily Wire reported.

“The Acting Chairwoman and Acting Ranking Member of the Committee on Ethics have jointly decided to extend the matter regarding Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, which was transmitted to the Committee by the Office of Congressional Ethics on June 23, 2022,” the committee remarked in a statement.

The statement then said 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 judgment on behalf of the Committee.”

As of this writing, there’s been no additional information made available as to why the committee is currently investigating AOC. The New York congresswoman was the subject of two complaints that were submitted to the committee in 2021 due to her attendance at the Met Gala, according to a report from the NY Post.

“One complaint alleged that Ocasio-Cortez violated rules because she accepted free tickets to the event, which would normally be allowed if it was a charity event and the tickets were provided by the organizers, the report said. However, the Post noted that the group that filed the complaint alleged Ocasio-Cortez should not have been allowed to accept the ticket because ‘invitations are controlled by a for-profit company’ and ‘tables at the event are similarly sponsored by corporate entities,’” the Daily Wire said.

The second complaint launched against AOC claimed that the dress she wore to the event, which was a not-so-classy little number that said, “Tax the Rich,” constituted accepting a gift that she wasn’t supposed to accept due to it being “directly related to AOC’s ‘position with the House’ as a highly visible and controversial Member.”

Despite borrowing the dress for the event, The Washington Free Beacon reported that Ocasio-Cortez did not report receiving any gifts in 2021 aside from a $3,000 engagement ring from her then-boyfriend, Riley Roberts,” the report continued.

Can you believe there are people out there who actually cast a ballot for this woman? How mentally disturbed do you have to be to vote in this clown show? It just boggles the mind.
