Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez violated one law that shows she has something big to hide

New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thinks the rules don’t apply to her.

It’s about to cause her a major problem.

And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez violated one law that shows she has something big to hide.

Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez has yet to file a financial disclosure form.

Even though Ocasio-Cortez’s form was due on August 13, it is still not posted to the website for members of Congress.

The Congresswoman’s spokesman told the Washington Examiner that Ocasio-Cortez was openly flaunting the deadline for members of Congress to file their financial disclosure forms.

“[T]he Committee provides a 30 day grace period before fines are levied. The Congresswoman plans to file before the period expires,” Communications Director Lauren Hitt said in a statement to the Examiner.

This is not the first time Ocasio-Cortez was late filing her financial disclosure form.

National Legal and Policy Center attorney Paul Kamenar ripped Ocasio-Cortez, noting that she habitually violated the deadlines for members of Congress to file a financial report.

“Not only is she an admitted scofflaw, she’s a repeat offender,” Kamenar told the Examiner. “One must wonder whether she also files her income tax returns past the deadlines.”

“Just like AOC did in 2020 when she filed her 2019 disclosure report 30 days late after the 90-day extension, she’s at it again, blowing off the deadline for filing her 2021 filing that was due on August 13,” Kamenar continued.

Kamenar wondered if the reason Ocasio-Cortez was so late in filing her form had to do with the fact that the National Legal and Policy Center filed a complaint back in 2021 over her violating rules governing ethics and gifts when she attended the 2021 Met Gala – which cost $30,000 per ticket – and wore a designer dress that read “tax the rich.”

In the National Legal and Policy Center complaint, the group said if Ocasio-Cortez sat at a table paid for by one of the corporations attending the Gala, then she received an impermissible gift.

“And if … the table where AOC sat was one paid for by one of [the] corporations attending the event, such as Instagram or Facebook, AOC has received a prohibited gift from the corporation that also lobbies Congress,” the complaint read.

The complaint added that Ocasio-Cortez never would have been invited to the Met Gala if she wasn’t a member of Congress.

“If AOC had not been a Member, she would not have been invited to the Gala,” the complaint said, adding that “and even if she would have been invited as a private citizen, the designer would not have made a special dress for her to wear at the event.”

Ocasio-Cortez appears to be hiding something by not filing her financial disclosure form.

But does it have anything to do with the complaint over her attendance at the 2021 Met Gala?
