A new ethics complaint has been filed against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez alleging that she used campaign donations to reimburse herself for thousands of dollars in expenses that were never properly explained or disclosed. This is just the latest in a series of ethical issues surrounding AOC, who was previously reprimanded by the Office of Congressional Ethics for likely violating “standards of conduct” and “federal law” with “impermissible gifts” relating to her attendance at the 2021 Met Gala in New York.
The new ethics complaint, filed by the conservative Coolidge Reagan Foundation, accuses AOC of repeatedly violating federal campaign finance law to conceal how she spent thousands of dollars of campaign funds. The complaint alleges that AOC’s authorized candidate committee, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for Congress (‘AOC for Congress’), reported tens of thousands of dollars of disbursements for card payments and card payment reimbursements to AOC herself, American Express, and an entity called ‘Veyond!’. However, the reports do not fully disclose the purposes of each payment for which the charge card was used.
It’s clear that AOC has a history of questionable actions when it comes to campaign finances. Republicans must demand accountability from AOC and her allies to ensure that the law is upheld. The radical left cannot be allowed to continue to engage in unethical behavior and disregard the law.
